  • Register for a USWP Membership* (www.usawaterpolo.org) first because you will need to enter your membership information when registering with the Stanford WPC.
  • Then, register for Stanford WPC’s Winter Session. Registration will be available online November 9.
  • Next, email Dawn (email) so she can add your son(s) to the Club Trial.  Be sure to include the athlete’s name, age, and USWP expiration date in your email.
  • Your son will have from November 28 – December 11 to participate in practices before deciding whether to continue for the remainder of the Winter Session.
  • If your son chooses NOT to continue after the Trial, you will need to email Dawn again on or before 12/11/16 to request a refund, which will be for 90% of the Session Dues to be credited back to your card.  

*If you are new to the sport of water polo, you may use the USWP Trial Membership (click here) while participating in our Club trial.  Please read the information and follow the instructions at the top of the form carefully.  Be sure to use the date your son will participate in his first practice so the membership covers the full two weeks of his Club trial.
