Summer Session for Ages 10 to 18 Begins June 21
Encinitas CA— San Dieguito Academy 2016 Alumni Collin Stewart and Nick Johnston are the proud new owners of Moonlight Beach Water Polo Club. They expanded the program to include teams for 10 to 18-year-old girls, 10 to 14-year-old boys, and beach water polo for all ages. Moonlight Beach Water Polo Club now offers teams for 10 to 18-year-old girls and boys and welcomes all levels of players to join its summer session starting June 21. Pool practices will be held at Alga Norte Aquatic Center in Carlsbad and Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito in Solana Beach.
The teams consist of Coed 14U, 10 to 14-year-old girls and boys; Girls 18U, 15 to 18-year-old girls; and Boys 18U, 15 to 18-year-old boys. All teams have the opportunity to participate in local scrimmages and tournaments.
Founded by prior San Dieguito Academy Water Polo Coach Scott Kling in 2018, Moonlight Beach Water Polo Club embraces Kling’s philosophy of three pillars: family, academics, and hard work. These concepts support great water polo players and more well-rounded individuals. Stewart and Johnston are grateful to carry on this tradition.
Stewart and Johnston grew up playing competitive water polo together in the San Diego region with various clubs: Seawolves, Del Mar, and Shores. During their four years at San Dieguito Academy, Stewart and Johnston played on the varsity team as set and guard, respectively. Stewart has coached for Moonlight Beach Water Polo Club and is currently head coach at San Dieguito Academy for both the boys and girls teams. Johnston has coached the boys and girls San Dieguito Academy summer program, San Luis Obispo Water Polo Club 14U Coed team, and South Valley Water Polo Club 14U Coed and 16U Boys teams.
In addition to Stewart, the Moonlight Beach Water Polo Club coaching staff includes Hannah Stalker, San Dieguito Academy junior varsity boys water polo coach; Dylan Herrera, San Dieguito Academy interim boys water polo assistant coach; and Piper Fluegge, previous Cuesta College water polo assistant coach.
