CSULB Ejects Shore Aquatics from Campus Pool

Mike Guardabascio of LBPost.com has written an interesting piece on the controversial decision by Long Beach State University to terminate its relationship with Shore Aquatics, a club that has produced scores of top flight water polo players for over a decade. Not only does the decision have implications for the Long Beach State program, but for clubs in the region, and Long Beach-based water polo in general. You can read the piece here.

UPDATE

Bob Keisser, long time sports columnist for the Long Beach Press-Telegram, has weighed in on the subject with an excellent, short history of aquatics at the Long Beach State facility. Check it out here.

    Thanks for putting a little blurb about this situation on your blog. I am a masters swimmer with Shore and I am being shuffled around in the middle of this mess. The Long Beach State folks view us Masters as just lap swimmers that happen to all show up at the same time. I do not understand the logic of the decision at all. The utilization of the pool’s resources does not warrant the removal of any program. If anything, in order to generate more revenue the pool could handle multiple programs making more efficient use of scheduling times, not less.
