RTWPC was founded by Club Director Kevin Nesbit. With several years of experience in the club water polo arena, Nesbit determined there was an immediate need for more water polo opportunities within our community. Thus RTWPC was founded in May of 2017 and opened its inaugural season in September of 2017 with the intent to expose the greater Rancho Cucamonga area to competitive-level water polo. These opportunities would become available for boy and girl athletes ages 5-18 years old. Ability levels beginner, intermediate, and advanced all can find what they need at RTWPC.
