The U.S. water polo team will play the Australian national team in a series of matches that begin Sunday at 5 p.m. at Newport Harbor High School.
There will be a second match the next Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at Newport Harbor and a final match Wednesday at 7:30 at UC San Diego.
Admission to the events is $4 for adults.
The series provides a final tuneup for the U.S. team before the Pan American games. The U.S. team is coached by Bill Barnett, who is also the water polo coach at Newport Harbor High.
Barnett said the Australians will be in California until Aug. 16, and will work out with the U.S. team between matches.
