This is done online at the USAWP site: 

STEP #2:
Sign-up with RTWPC (seasonal membership). This must be done online. The club does not accept cash or checks.

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT AGE GROUP MY ATHLETE IS IN?

  • USA Water Polo determines age group eligibility based on the athleteʼs age as of

    August 1st each year. For example, if someone turns 19 on August 2, they will be eligible to play with our 18U age group for Junior Olympics.

  • Certain tournaments will be grade based, rather than year-based. In this case, the USAWP age rules will not apply. The coach will communicate which rosters athletes are placed on.

HOW WILL I BE INFORMED ABOUT WHATS GOING ON WITH THE CLUB & MY PLAYERS TEAM?

Our club relies heavily on our Team App​ for communication purposes. Our coaches and administrators will post and update via the team app, as well send out reminder emails.
