Take a look at the number one water polo club outside of California. The Greenwich YMCA's Aquatics Water Polo Club is only getting started making a name for "East Coast water polo". 

"It's a really big season. We just went to the National State Challenge and we won that. That was one of the big tournaments so far," said player Jack Kerwin. 

"There's American Water Polo and USA Water Polo, and it was basically American Water Polo Nationals, and we won it," said player Sam Varshisky. 

In less than a week, these players are heading out west for the Junior Olympics. 

"It's the biggest water polo tournament in the world. It's the national tournament for the juniors in the United States. It's really a privilege to be there. We have strong teams going there, and we are going to try our best to do well," said head coach Ulmis Iordacag. 

Greenwich is sending eight teams to the Junior Olympics, something no team outside of California has ever done. 

"I think it's going to be my fifth time. We have a small team going for 18 and under, but it should be fun. I'm excited," said Varshisky.
