CVWP - Club Of The Year

The Central Valley Water Polo Club has been Awarded the Club of the Year award from USA Water Polo.

2017 Master Water Polo

You are receiving this letter because you played for the Central Valley Water Polo Club in the last three years or because you are a referee.

Welcome back to another season of Master’s Water Polo.  The 2017 season marks our 24th year of offering water polo to the Central Valley.  Our season officially kicks off on January 10th 2017.  We will have our first practice at Sunnyside High School from 6:30-8:30pm.  We will meet for a brief overview at 6:30pm and then get in for our first training.  Our season will continue through June 6th at which time we will offer our summer season.  By registering for the 2017 regular season, you automatically are registered for the summer season.  Your club dues cover both sessions.  The first club dinner night will be held on January 12th after practice at Wahoo’s, 3053 Campus Drive.

Practices for both men and women will be held every Tuesday and Thursday night at Sunnyside High School.  To have more consistency between practice, league and tournaments, we are working with CCAF to have a certified official who will referee the men’s scrimmages on the evenings opposite league.  PLEASE, it is already difficult to get officials to come to masters events, so… just play the whistle.  When we complain, the officials do not return.  We need to make them feel very welcome. 

Beginning on Thursday, February 16th, Kyle Bunch and his crew at Hoover High will offer another men’s masters league this winter/spring.  This league is run as a fundraiser to support the Hoover High water polo program.  It will be held mostly on Tuesday nights, (there are 2 weeks with a Thursday game to accommodate swim meets) and regular season play will continue through April.  (The league is separate from CVWP and therefore requires a separate payment to participate.)  During the nights of the Hoover High Men’s League, the pool at Sunnyside will be closed.  If you are interested in playing in the men’s league, be sure to register before the deadline.  Last year, players were disappointed that they could not play because they were unable to register after the coach’s draft.  The deadline to register for the league is Tuesday, February 7th at midnight.

Here is the calendar for our upcoming season. 

In order to play for CVWP, here are some things that you must do before getting in the water.

1.        Be a current member (at least bronze level) of USA Water Polo.  If you plan to play in tournaments, you should research which level membership will be best for you.  Here is the link to join. 

2.       Be a current paid member of CVWP. 

Men’s link -  Women’s link - 

3.       Agree to help with setting up and tearing down the pool at each practice session.  No one should be in the showers until all the lane lines are in and the pool is covered.  If everyone pitches in, clean up takes just a few minutes. 

4.       If you would like to register for the league, here is the link.  The deadline is Feb. 7 at midnight.

Also be sure to click on the “Signup for Alerts” button  and register your mobile device.  This will be the preferred method to communicate with everyone on the team.  If the pool goes down and we need to move practice or if there are other updates we need to share with the team, this is how we will do it.  Sign up when you register, don’t be left in the dark. 

We look forward to another great year of water polo.  I hope to see you Tuesday, January 10th, 2017.
