WINTER 2023-24 REGISTRATION WILL BE ANNOUNCED END OF OCTOBER
REQUIRED – USA Water Polo Membership
Before registering for an MBU session, all athletes must be a registered and current member of USA Water Polo and listed as a club member of Monterey Bay United Water Polo (club #34089) before participating in any sessions with MBU Water Polo. You can register online (gold level recommended) and receive instant verification by going to www.usawaterpolo.org. Click on “Join Now” in the top right corner. If you are new and belong to a different club, you MUST transfer your membership. Athletes will not be allowed to train or compete without a current USAWP membership.
The athlete's age as of August 1 is the cutoff for USAWP, however, it is our club’s philosophy that players will compete with their peers in their grade (there may be some exceptions which will be up to the coaching staff).

Local & Regional Tournaments
Athletes will be provided with opportunities to compete in tournaments both locally and regionally
throughout the seasons. The schedule in TeamSnap will have a complete list of competitions that our teams will be participating in – be sure to check the schedule regularly as dates will be added throughout the seasons.
For Junior Olympic qualifying tournaments and Junior Olympics, all travel arrangements are taken care of by the athlete’s family, including getting to and from the pools for competition. We will arrange a block of rooms at a host hotel, securing a good price. Coaches will stay at the host hotel. All athletes are expected to meet at the pool one hour before games unless told otherwise by their coach. Cost for each event is based on entry fee and coaches travel expenses. Athletes must always be supervised by an adult. We ask that everyone communicate each athlete’s travel plans and whom each athlete will be supervised by over the course of the trip.
Junior Olympics (JO’s)
USAWP Junior Olympics are held each summer alternating between the Bay Area and Southern California. The 2024 dates will be in the Bay Area - date TBA.
