Friday, November 16 at 2:00 p.m., the ASU women will compete against UCLA and members of the SoCal All-Stars while the ASU men will compete exclusively against the SoCal All-Stars as UCLA does not field a men's team. Saturday, November 17 at noon, both the men and women will be in action against USC. All ASU home meets are contested on campus at the Mona Plummer Aquatic Center, just south of Sun Devil Stadium.
