Q. What should my child bring to practice?

A. Great attitude, swimsuit (preferably jammers), goggles, towel, and water

Q.  Which practice should my child go to?
A.  If your child is 10 years old/under, they should go to any Bronze practice.  If they are 11-12 years old, they should go to any Silver practice.  Children ages 13+ should go to Gold. The coach will re-assign them after the first couple of practices if they would fit better into a different group.

 

Q.  How do I know my child's color group (Bronze, Silver or Gold)?
A.  Please ask your coach at the next practice


Q.  When will I be billed?
A. If your child started the trial period the first week of the month, you will be auto-charged on the 1st day of the next month.  If you started mid-month or later, you will be auto-charged on the 1st day of the month following (so it is in effect more than a 30 day trial).  We will contact you prior to your first auto payment.

 

Q. Who should I contact about my membership, billing or club administration? 
A.  Email Laurie Dunlap, the club Administrative Director. 


Q.  What is the difference between a Regular and Multi-Aquatic Membership?
A.  Regular Membership applies to athletes who are only members of Pegasus and that is their only aquatic sport and they are charged the full membership fee.

Pegasus fully supports athletes to continue or join local competitive swim teams where they work on their swimming technique and endurance. Thus the “Multi-Aquatic Membership” is a discounted rate designed to encourage athletes to swim. There are also a couple of athletes who are members of another water polo club and want to get some extra practice time. They, too, fall into the “Multi-Aquatic Membership” category


Q.  Is it ok for my child to play in tournaments or game days if they are new players?
A.  Yes! We encourage all athletes to come play with us on game days and tournaments since they are fun and a great way for a child to learn the sport.   One of the team parents will send out information about tournament registration and schedules through the TeamUnify site

Q. Can I go to any practice location?
A. Yes! Your membership allows you to use any practice location in your color group. Please click on “Calendar” to see our current practice schedule and locations for each group.

 

Q. There are so many practices offered. Does my child have to go to all of them?

A. Absolutely not. Attend practices that are convenient for you and your child. For Bronze we recommend a minumum of 2-3 practices per week, for Silver 3-4, and for Gold 4-5.

Q.  How do I get on the whatsapp 12U parent link?
A.  Please email Michael Slaughter for the link.

 

Q. How do I know if a practice is canceled?

A. We immediately update the online calendar. If we have to cancel at the last minute/the day of the practice we always send out an email to all the members
 

Q. What is ODP (Olympic Development Program)?

A. This is our governing organization's program to identify the most talented young athletes throughout the United States. Essentially all of our Gold Athletes and some Silver Athletes participate in this program. For more info please follow this link http://www.usawaterpolo.org/odp/
