Water Polo Programs

Competitive Teams: 

PVWPC’s Competitive programs are designed to develop teams that compete in local, regional, state and national events. Typically, the competitive year culminates with the USWP Junior Olympics, a national event held annually in late July. Beginning with PVWPC’s Fall Quarter, each competitive team participates in a competitive calendar of games, leagues and tournaments that will develop them to achieve their potential on the Junior Olympic stage. $520 per quarter, fees subject to change. Competitive Teams run year-round, except when pre-empted by our local high school seasons for the 16U and 18U age groups:

  • 10U Mixed (subject to sufficient enrollment)
  • 12U Boys
  • 14U/12U Girls
  • 14U Boys
  • 16U Boys (except Fall)
  • 18U/16U Girls (except Winter)
  • 18 Boys (except Fall)

14U Pipeline: 

Our 14U Pipeline program is for athletes who are 14U for the 2017/2018 season, but who are not yet read for our 14U Competitive team. 14U Pipeline will compete in local “Bronze”-level events, and athletes may be eligible to try out for a spot on the 14U team later in the season, if invited by the 14U Head Coach. $520 per quarter, year-round, fees subject to change.

Fun in the Sun!

Our Fun in the Sun (FITS) program is designed for athletes ages 7-12 who are new to water polo. It provides a way to “get your feet wet” and see how fun water polo can be! Athletes 12-and-under by 8/1/2018 (e.g. born 8/2/2005 or later) are eligible.

While no previous water polo experience is necessary to join FITS, strong swimming skills are required:

  • 10 and under athletes must be able to swim 100 yds comfortably (4 lengths of the pool), freestyle (front crawl), without stopping or touching the bottom.
  • All other trial athletes must be able to swim 100 yds freestyle in under 1:50 (Jr. Guard time standard), without stopping or touching the bottom.
  • If your athlete needs to develop his/her swimming skills before starting water polo, we have an excellent relationship with Palos Verdes Aquatic Club (PVAC)

Please download the FITS flyer for detailed sign-up instructions and fees.


* Our national governing body, USA Water Polo, uses August 1 as the “age as of” date in determining eligibility for the season, which culminates in the National Junior Olympics tournament in late July. For example an athlete born on 8/1/2005 will turn 13 on 8/1/2018 and be ineligible to play 12U at JOs. Therefore the date of birth cutoff for all programs is August 2.
