REGISTRATION
CLICK HERE for registration for our 2021 Fall Session. 

Registration for all groups is available on a first-come, first-served basis until we reach capacity in each practice group. A notice will be posted at the top of the home page once a practice group is full. Any athlete who registers after a group is posted as full, is not guaranteed a spot for the Fall Session, and will incur a 10% transaction fee. The remaining 90% of session costs will be refunded.

Once registration is closed, please email Coach Johnson (email) to be put on our wait list. Individuals on the waitlist will be contacted via email and added to the appropriate practice group should space become available.

ADDITIONAL WAIVER & MEDICAL INFORMATION FORM
Stanford University requires parents of all minors participating in on-campus activities to read, fill out, sign, and return the "2021 Individual Waiver" and the “2021 Medical Information Form.” Both forms must be filled, signed, and returned once per year (Fall-Summer) prior to athletes being allowed to participate in any current session programming. Both forms must be submitted prior to the start of the Session by emailing them to forms@stanfordwpc.com.

USA WATER POLO MEMBERSHIP
All athletes must have valid USA Water Polo (USWP) membership through the end of 2021 prior to submitting registration. Gold is required for all athletes. To register or renew with USWP click here.

Important Note: Athletes wishing to be selected to Champions Cup Team must be affiliated with our Club, Stanford Water Polo Foundation, club #570, Pacific Zone (#6) no later than 7 days prior to the commencement of the zone qualification tournament.

Age Verification
USWP has an age verification requirement for all athletes participating in National Championship Events. For those who have never completed the age verification, this is a one-time-charge of $5.00 paid online through TC logiQ Secure Website. Gold athlete members must complete this process prior to participating in any National Championship Event, in particular the Regional Junior Olympic Qualifier, which is fast approaching. This process can take up to seven (7) days to receive results, so we urge all athletes to complete the verification right away to avoid delays as the qualifiers get closer. We will not be able to verify and submit rosters until all athletes' birth dates have been successfully verified in the USWP system. We encourage all of our members who have the intention of participating on one of our Club Champions Cup teams to complete the verification process as described by USWP as soon as possible. If you have any follow up questions regarding the verification process, please feel free to email Coach Johnson (email).

Membership ID Check
Prior to each game, teams and athletes are now required to present verified rosters, proving all athletes are current USWP members, as well as photo IDs to match those listed on the verified rosters. We have the ability to produce copies of Stanford WPC USWP Membership IDs and provide them directly to the coaches prior to competition and ask that all Fall Session athletes double check their USWP Membership account to ensure there is a current headshot uploaded for every athlete. Uploading a headshot is a simple process, which is detailed in everyone's USWP account, but if you have any questions please email Coach Johnson (email).
