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 Summer Session, and will incur a 10% transaction fee. The remaining 90% of session costs will be refunded.

Be sure to mark your calendar for April 30th, as no registration email reminders will be sent out.

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.

USA WATER POLO MEMBERSHIP

All athletes must have valid USA Water Polo (USWP) membership through the end of 2019 prior to submitting registration. Gold* or Silver Membership is required for all Age Group 1, Age Group 2 and High School athletes. Only Age Group 3 athletes can participate with Bronze level membership. To register or renew with USWP click here.
*Gold membership is required for all athletes interested in participating at Junior Olympics.

Important Note: Athletes wishing to be selected to a JO Team must be affiliated with our Club, Stanford Water Polo Foundation, club #570, Pacific Zone (#6) on or before Thursday, May 3oth. USWP is very strict on this, and there is no grace period.

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 JO 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 Spring 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).
