Junior Polo Games Saturday: Our second round of Jr Polo games will be held this Saturday, 3/31, from 9:00-11:00 am at the Roble Pool.

Sunday Practice Update: Due to a Stanford Women’s Water Polo game being held earlier in the day both Age Group and High School groups will practice Sunday, 4/1, at the following times:

HS 1 & HS 2: 3:00-5:00 pm
AG 1 & AG 2: 5:00-7:00 pm

Clothing Orders Ready For Pick Up: If you placed an order through the Team Shop and mailed your Order Confirmation sheet with payment your order has been filled and is ready for pick-up at the Men's Water Polo Office at the Avery Aquatic Center.

Note On USA Water Polo Age Verification: As described in USA Water Polo’s email sent out last week, USWP is implementing a new birth date verification requirement for all USAWP athletes participating in National Championship Events. This will be 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. Clubs will not be able to verify and submit rosters until all athletes' birth dates have been successfully verified in our system.

For those of you who are concerned about submitting your son’s social security number, USWP has noted that by having users log onto the TC logiQ secure website directly to enter the required Social Security number they are attempting to safeguard every member's very personal information.  The athlete's social security number is not recorded on the USA Water Polo website at any time, nor is it stored within TC logiQ. Once your birth date has been verified, it is deleted from the TC system completely, and only a verified response is sent to us and we record the "approved birth date" in the athlete's membership profile.

This one-time process will eliminate the need for athletes and coaches to carry proof of birth date when participating in a National Championship. We encourage all our members who have the intention of participating on one of our summer’s Junior Olympic 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 Barnea (email) or USWP Membership Coordinator Christy Medigovich (email).

Athletic Scholarship Fund: The Stanford Water Polo Foundation has an Athletic Scholarship Fund which helps athletes participate in our program who otherwise would not be able to due to financial hardship. For those who can and would like to contribute to this fund in support of our athletes, please fill in the designated area on the online registration form and submit a separate check payable to 'SWPF', or Stanford Water Polo Foundation. Thank you. Donations are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated!

We are looking forward to a great Spring Session!
