Hope to see you all at SUNDAY'S practices.  The clothing orders are in and will be distributed during both practice sessions.

As the winter season progresses we will be participating in the Pacific Zone Winter League.
The league's playing dates are as follows:

1/10,11        1/24,25       2/7,8

Open and 16's will play on Saturdays (1/10, 1/24, 2/7)
18's and 12's/14's will play on Sundays (1/11, 1/25, 2/8)

We will be entering multiple teams into various playing brackets. For us to best gauge how many teams we enter and what brackets we enter them into we need to know who will not be able to attend certain weekends. Please note that by not informing us that you will be missing a certain weekend we are assuming that you will be there to play. If you cannot make a playing date, please complete the Game Availability Form and bring it to practice on December 14th.


December 8, 2003

The Stanford Water Polo Club will be offering a limited selection of team clothing for the winter session. We have selected items that would be appropriate for this colder season.

We want the athletes and family members to have their clothing as soon as possible. In order for this to happen we need to have all orders in by the second team practice (this Sunday, December 14) and we will place the order the next day. Please give them to Joanne Harmon or your coach. Sorry, no exceptions. 

Please click on the "Team Shop" button and print out the Adobe Acrobat form. Swimsuit sizes are available in 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34 and 36. If you have any problems downloading the form or any questions, please do not hesitate to email Joanne Harmon at joanne_harmon@yahoo.com.

SWPC WINTER SESSION

The Stanford Water Polo Club Winter Session is filling up fast! If you are interested in participating (first practice starts the week of Dec. 9th) please get your registration forms in as soon as possible. You may sign-up on the first day of practice but we cannot guarantee that there will be space. We are looking forward to a very exciting year!


2003 NCAA MEN’S WATER POLO SELECTIONS

INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA Men's Water Polo Committee announced today the four teams participating in the 2003 National Collegiate championship.

This year's championship, hosted by Stanford University, will be held December 6-7.

In the first game, the University of Southern California (22-3) will play the U.S. Naval Academy (25-6) followed by Stanford (21-4) versus Loyola Marymount University (16-13). Game times are 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Pacific time respectively on December 6.

Conferences receiving automatic qualification were: Mountain Pacific Sports Federation, the Collegiate Water Polo Association and the Western Water Polo Association. The remaining team was selected at large without geographical restrictions.

A four-team, single-elimination tournament will be played, with a game to determine third place.

Last year, Stanford defeated University of California, Berkeley 7-6 to capture its tenth championship.

Since the beginning of the championship in 1969, no team from outside the state of California has ever reached the championship final.

We encourage the Stanford Club team to come out and support the Cardinal. This event is expected to be a sell-out so buy your tickets early! Students can purchase the two-day all-session pass for only $15.00, adults $25.00. Wear your red and white! Just click on http://gostanford.ocsn.com/sports/m-wpolo/ncaa2003/ for more information.

Congratulations to the 14&U Team for their Silver Medallist finish in St. Louis, Missouri this past weekend at the 2003 Speedo Cup Tournament. The boys played extremely well and the coaches did an incredible job. Scott Platshon was the recipient of the Jody Campbell Award for his outstanding play. Well done!

Nov. 16, 2003
Long Beach, Ca. - The second-ranked Stanford men's water polo team jumped out to a 6-0 first period lead and never looked back as the Cardinal scored a 12-8 victory over eighth-ranked Long Beach State in a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation game on Sunday.

On Saturday, Peter Varellas, Tony Azevedo and Thomas Hopkins each scored three goals to lead the second-ranked Stanford Cardinal to a 12-6 win over UC Irvine in Mountain Pacific Sports Federation action Saturday at the Anteater Aquatics Complex.

Stanford returns home on Nov. 22 (10 a.m.) to face Bay Area rival Cal. We encourage the Stanford Club team to come out and support the Cardinal at this coming Saturday’s Big Splash. Wear your red and white!!
