Saturday, May 23 - Long Beach, California

The Grunions are exploring the creation of a water polo team! The purpose is to build skills & camaraderie, and show off what we've learned in a few short months at the Salt Lake City International Gay and Lesbian Aquatics Games in May of 2021.

Led by Dean Zrucky, a current member of the Long Beach Grunions swim team, and former water polo coach, the Grunions are looking to see if there is interest in the community to join our organization in starting a masters water polo team. Dean has experience coaching high school, from freshmen girls to varsity teams that reached the quarterfinals in CIFs a few times in San Diego. So whatever your current level, we're ready to have you join our team & become a better water polo player.
