NO B TEAMS OR STUFFED ROSTERS

  • BLUE WAVE 2028 is for incoming freshmen (2028 grad year) that practice, play local games, and participate in three high-end local tournaments/showcases with Coach Aron Garcia starting in May and through July. 
  • BLUE WAVE UNDERCLASS is for incoming sophomore and junior high school players (2027 & 2026 grad years) that will play at the high JV moving to varsity level and 16U league age for the summer. This team is managed by Russ Martinez, an assistant varsity coach at Tustin High School.
  • BLUE WAVE VARSITY-Garcia is for ALL high school varsity starters regardless of grad year, but mostly juniors (2026 grad year) and incoming seniors (2025 grads). Is coached by Aron Garcia and will play in the top division (17U or 18U) of several top local showcase events.
