Please take a moment to fill out the questionnaire below if you/your athlete would like to be considered for one of this summer's Travel Teams. If you have any questions, please contact Brett Luch at email@example.com.The 2018 Junior Olympics will be held in the Palo Alto area, 7/21-7/24 (12U-18U boys) and 7/26-7/29 (10U Coed and 12U-18U girls). We will also be adding additional local tournaments for our travel teams on weekends not occupied by Junior Olympic qualifying or finals. In order to participate at the Junior Olympics, teams must first qualify through our Pacific Zone qualifying tournament. See dates below for each age group's qualifying dates.
Selection to a JO team is based on, but not limited to, the following criteria: position, ability/skill level, experience, attitude, and availability for the Qualifying Tournaments. Tryouts may be held in May if there is more interest than roster spots to either separate into an "A" and "B" team, or to make cuts. Please also be aware that we may ask athletes to play up an age group during qualifiers, in addition to their age group, in an effort to qualify as many teams as possible.
Athletes wishing to be considered for a JO Team must commit and declare themselves eligible by filling out the questionnaire below by March 30th. After March 30th, we will determine what Travel Teams we will be able to field, and we will then hold parent and player meetings to discuss details, and hand out a Declaration Packet. This packet will be due by May 1st.
Please Note: Athletes who would like to be considered for a Travel Team must be affiliated with our Club, Legacy Water Polo Club, no later than 7 days prior to the commencement of the Zone Qualification Tournament, must have a photo headshot uploaded onto their USA WP Membership, and have their age verified via USWP/TC logiQ.
