The AWP leagues follow the NCAA playing rules with some modifications.  The NCAA rules can be found by going to http://www.collegiatewaterpolo.org/Officiating/NCAA_Rules_2014_16.pdf  or to http://static.psbin.com/9/1/beyyi0ufof5ihc/NCAA_Rules_2014_16.pdf.pdf .  The AWP rule modifications can be found at www.americanwaterpolo.org.

SJAC also plans to host competitive Water Polo tournaments in the future and initial discussions have taken place concerning the creation of a local Water Polo League, which will be played during the summer months.  Stay tuned for more information to come!
