Welcome To Detroit Water Polo Club
UPDATE: Winter 2020
We will have two groups for the upcoming session. All practices will take place at Seaholm High School pool from January 6th-March 12, 2020.
- High School Girls – Monday/Wednesday from 8:00-9:30 and Tuesday/Thursday from 7:00-8:30
- Middle School Coed – Tuesday/Thursday from 5:30-7:00
Athletes from the Birmingham Public School District will be given priority to participate but Detroit Water Polo Club is open to new and returning water polo players in Birmingham area.
Additionally, we plan to participate in at least two weekend tournaments this winter. Traveling rosters will be determined by the coaching staff with the goal of fielding the best available squad for each participating age group.
High School Girls – $225 for two practices per week or $450 for four practices per week. If choosing four practices, register for both Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday options.
Middle School Coed – $225 for two practices per week.
I’ve included the complete sign up process below:
1. Register/renew membership with USA Water Polo (here) as a bronze athlete and affiliate with Detroit Water Polo Club when prompted. After you’ve registered, add a picture of the athlete to his or her membership card on the USA Water Polo website. If you have already registered with USA Water Polo this year, skip to step 2.
2. Sign up for your appropriate practice session in the Shop.
3. Fill out and sign the attached liability form from Birmingham Community Education here. If you have already filled out and returned this form, you are done with sign up.
New Athletes are welcome. The only thing we ask is that you are comfortable in the water (can swim at least 2 lengths of the pool without stopping) and are willing to learn. If you are unsure or have questions, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please Note: In the case we do not attract enough athletes to justify a 90 minute session twice a week for any one group, we will combine groups accordingly to offset the substantial pool rental costs. I thank you in advance for your understanding and flexibility.
