For insurance reasons and also for competitions, to be an OCWPF club member, you must also have an active membership in at least one of the following national organizations…


All swimmers must register with USA Swimming ($70 annual fee), we will supply the paperwork (no online registration)


All water polo players must register with USA Water Polo (, this is an online registration (annual fee for gold is $120)…


There are three different levels of water polo memberships (Gold, Silver, and Bronze).  Please, no Bronze memberships, as this membership only allows practice and very few events. All varsity level players must have a gold membership, for non-varsity players silver is OK.  Only the gold membership allows full access. An athlete does not always need a gold membership, but upgrading a membership at a later date costs more money than retaining the membership originally.
