Membership ID Check Prior to each game, teams and athletes are now required to present verified rosters proving all athletes are current USA WP members, as well as photo IDs to match those listed on the verified rosters. We have the ability to produce copies of NorCal Aquatics USA Water Polo Membership IDs and provide them directly to the coaches prior to competition and ask that all summer athletes double check their USWP Membership account to ensure there is a current headshot uploaded every very 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 Tasman.
