USA Water Polo chose Lewisville in part because of its state-of-the-art venue. Westside Aquatics Center opened in 2014 and houses the second-largest swimming pool in Texas. It holds more than one million gallons of water and can be configured to make three water polo courses. The 75,000-square-foot facility also has seating for up to 1,200 spectators. It previously held the USA Water Polo Champions Cup, a U14 National Championship.
All the teams competing in this tournament will soon be trying to qualify for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The USA women are coming off a great year that ended with a 41-6 record and a gold medal at the Pan American Games, FINA World League Super Final and the FINA World Championship.
The top four teams in this competition will qualify for the FINA World League Super Final, which is set for June 7-12 in Shanghai, China.
