USA Water Polo Now Has An Official Fruit

Stemilt Growers, a Washington state-based tree-fruit producer, has entered into a partnership with USA Water Polo to serve as the Official Fresh Fruit sponsor of the National Governing Body through August of 2011.

Beginning in January 2011, Stemilt will feature select members of the USA Men’s and Women’s National Teams on their in-store displays at retailers across the country, and leverage healthy lifestyle content provided by USA Water Polo. The agreement also provides fresh fruits such as apples, pears, cherries, and stone fruits to the USA Water Polo National Teams, Olympic Development program, and participants in the 8th Annual USA Water Polo Golf Tournament set for December 17th in Mission Viejo, CA.

“Fresh fruits like apples, pears, cherries, and other stone fruits are key components to a healthy and well-balanced diet. We are excited to help Stemilt spread the word about their fruit and present a healthy nutritional message to USA Water Polo members and those in the water polo community,” said USA Water Polo Chief Marketing Officer Jennifer Rottenberg.

USA Water Polo will feature Stemilt across a variety of platforms including informational placements in monthly e-newsletters, event programs, SkipShot magazine, Facebook, and Twitter, where the company will be recognized as the official fruit sponsor.

“Partnering with USA Water Polo is a natural fit for Stemilt. These talented athletes know that a healthy lifestyle is key to being able to perform at such a high level each day. Apples, pears, cherries, and other fruits are not only a part of a healthy lifestyle, but can also assist with weight loss and ward off many chronic diseases. We are excited to bring USA Water Polo into our promotions in order to continue raising awareness about Stemilt fruits,” said Stemilt marketing director, Roger Pepperl.
