On the cusp of winning its first water polo league title in 22 years, Nogales High School is also making waves for its great work in the community with the newly created Safe Harbor Athletics Club.
The club is in the thick of its third session although the program has just gotten under way. They are hosting a pilot program called "Seadevils water polo," which is open to fifth through eighth graders in the Rowland Heights community and surrounding areas.
The program is free and is fully operated by volunteers, including the founder, Nogales water polo assistant coach Tim Tobin. The program runs from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays at the Nogales pool.
Tobin said, "We are trying to get more kids involved in athletics. We ask that parents volunteer two hours of their time to help keep us going. One of the points of our whole program is to just get our parents involved with their kids and outreach the athletes at an early age."
