NEW FAMILY "QUICK START" GUIDE
Practice Session Details – If you haven't yet registered for this season’s Davis Water Polo Club (DWPC) session, go to our Registration page and follow the instructions or contact our registrar, Christine Taylor, at email@example.com for assistance.
Don’t worry if you’re already booked solid but hopefully your athlete can come out for one of our other sessions. Our rolling practice schedule is roughly 8-weeks on and 4-weeks off. For each session, the coaches also schedule two or three scrimmages/tournaments for each group.
Our Fall session runs from September through October. Our Winter session runs from December through early February, with no practices the last two or three weeks of December. Our Spring session runs from March through April. During the school year, practices are generally Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30 to 7:30 for our 10U group and 6:30 to 8:00 for our 12U and 14U groups.
Our Summer session typically starts just before the Memorial Day weekend and runs through the end of July with JOs being the big summer finale. For our Summer session, practices are Tuesday and Thursday through the end of the school year and then Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday starting at 12:00 or 12:30.
USAWP Membership – In addition to the Club’s session fee you also need to sign up your athlete as a USA Water Polo member (the Gold level is required for JO-related events) in order for your athlete to participate in games and also practices. USAWP essentially provides DWPC with insurance in the event a player is injured. USAWP membership expires at the end of each calendar year. https://webpoint.usawaterpolo.com/wp/Memberships/Join.wp
Once a USAWP member, login and upload a photo of your athlete. After the USAWP member login screen, click on “MY USAWP ACCOUNT” and follow the photo upload instructions.
USAWP also has a birth date verification requirement for all JO athletes, and a player cannot be included on a JO roster unless his/her birth date has been successfully verified in the USAWP system. There is a one-time charge of $5.00 paid online through TC logiQ Secure Website. Follow the Birth Date Verification link also located on the “MY USAWP ACCOUNT” page.
