2020 USA Water Polo Junior Olympics:
During our 2019 - 2020 Winter Session, we will start putting together our USA Water Polo Junior Olympic teams for this upcoming Summer. Junior Olympic teams will be finalized during our 2020 spring session. We are planning on entering 18u girls, 18u boys, 16u girls, 16u Boys, 14u girls, 14u boys, 14u girls, 12u boys or 12u Coed team this summer. With our club growing in size we will be changing our Junior Olympic policy. To be apart of our Junior Olympic Team we ask that each athlete is able to participate in ALL tournament dates.
Junior Olympic Qualification will take place over one or two weekends. We need all of our athletes to be at all the qualifying games. During Junior Olympic Qualifications each team can expect to play 7 - 10 games over the two weekends. We must qualify to participate in the 2020 National Junior Olympics.
Athletes must attend 80% of practice to be selected to a Junior Olympic team.
Athletes wishing to be selected to our Junior Olympic must be affiliated with our Club, Northern California Aquatics club #23991, Pacific Zone (#6) no later than 7 days prior to the commencement of the zone qualification tournament. USWP is very strict on this, and there is no grace period.
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.
