2020 Masters Information

Welcome back to another season of Master’s Water Polo.  The 2020 season marks our 27th year of offering water polo to the Central Valley.  Our season officially kicks off on January 7th 2020.  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 9th at which time we will offer our summer season.  By registering for the 2020 regular season, you automatically are registered for the summer season.  Your club dues cover both sessions.  The annual club photo and first club dinner night will be held on January 23rd after practice at Wahoo’s, 3053 Campus Drive.

Practices will be held every Tuesday and Thursday night at Sunnyside High School from 6:30-8:30pm. 

Beginning on Wednesday, March 11, Fresno Pacific will host the masters league.  The league will take place on Wednesday nights through May 6.  (The league is separate from CVWP and therefore requires a separate payment to participate however CVWP members will enjoy a generous discount.)  More information about league will be out soon.

              Because our season is a week longer and the league is taking place on Wednesdays this year, we will benefit from 12 additional practices.

New this year, we will be hosting TWO local tournaments.  On April 4th, we will host a one-day invite only tournament.  This smaller tournament will be a warmup for the big 27th annual tournament which will be held on May 16th & 17th.

Here is the calendar for our upcoming season.  //s3.amazonaws.com/my.llfiles.com/00283614/CVWP_2020_Cal.pdf   

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.  https://webpoint.usawaterpolo.com/wp/memberships/join.wp  Please note, if you do not have a current USAWP membership, you may not get in the water. 

2.       Be a current paid member of CVWP.

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.       We use remind.com to communicate with our members. If a pool goes down or we need to change a practice time, we can let you know ASAP.  You can add or remove yourself at any time.  Sign up with class code 4h6g2g.

Sincerely,

Central Valley Water Polo
