General Guidelines & Policies

European Water Polo Club is a registered Club # 1680 under USA Water Polo. All athletes must be registered with USA Water Polo and The European Water Polo Club.

The equipment fee will go toward the purchase of the balls, hats, goals, shot clocks and game clocks, etc. that our athletes use each session.

We offer $25 off regular registration fee to additional siblings.

If you are new to the sport of water polo, you may use the USA Water Polo Trial Membership. This is a one-time, 14-day membership for the first – time athletes only, that will activate the day the application is signed. If you plan to use this membership, be sure to date the application with the date of the first day of the session, make a copy to submit with this registration, and fax the original to USA Water Polo. If you plan to stay, and complete 2014 Fall Program with The European Water Polo Club, you will need to register in advance for a proper membership with The USA Water Polo before the end of your trial period.  See Try Water Polo Page for more information.

To withdraw, The European Water Polo Club must be notified via e-mail: and a phone call 310 883 5007. All refunds will be pro-rated as of the week following the request, minus a $50.00 administrative fee. There are no refunds, credits, or make ups for missed classes due to severe weather conditions, lightning or any other reason out of The European Water Polo Club’s control. No refunds will be issued for cancellations during the final four weeks of the season. A fee of $35.00 will be assessed for returned checks.

All athletes (boys and girls) will be assigned by the Coaching Staff to one of the groups based on age, ability level, and experience. Water polo ages are based on the year an athlete was born. Note: The Coaching Staff may assign an athlete to a group that does not correspond to age, but rather the ability level and experience. The Coaches typically will check the group choice at the time of the registration and confirm the assignment of each athlete to a group prior to the start of the session. There may be some changes in group assignments during the first few practices as the coaches assess each athlete’s skill and ability level.

European Water Polo Club always welcomes new members who would like to compete at various tournaments (example: qualifying teams may elect to participate in Junior Olympics). Additional information will be provided by Coaching and Administration prior to the events. Please be sure to keep an eye on the Calendar for the upcoming events and Team Roasters.

Please note: guidelines and policies are subject to changes. We will do our utmost to keep everybody informed of any changes.
