HOW AGE GROUPS WORK

Age group water polo in the U.S. revolves around the “Junior Olympics cycle,” with a series of tournaments and leagues culminating in the massive National Junior Olympic tournament in late July of each year. To ensure that players do not change age groups during a JO cycle, USA Water Polo uses an “age as of” date of August 1 of that year for the tournament.

Age groups are separated every 2 years, e.g. “14U” is 14-and-under, “12U” is 12-and-under, etc.

So, for example, an athlete born on 8/1/2009 will turn 13 on 8/1/2022, and thus will be considered “14U” by USA Water Polo for the entire 2021/2022 season, even though he/she will not have turned 13 until the last day. That athlete would be ineligible for most of the important 12U tournaments and leagues that we play in as a club.

An athlete born one day later, on 8/2/2009, will still be 12 on 8/1/2022, and thus will be considered “12U” and eligible for the entire 2021/2022 season.

This is a nation-wide policy of USA Water Polo, enforced by its registration and age-verification system, and by the online rostering system for most important tournaments and leagues. There is no way for PVWPC to waive or over-ride the age restrictions for tournaments that use the USA Water Polo roster registration system.

There are a few tournaments in the Fall that use a different “age as of” date, but since our club is geared towards building teams for JOs, our club adheres strictly to the USA Water Polo age group system throughout the year.

USA WATER POLO STRUCTURE 

AGE GROUP TEAMS

Athletes practice and compete on a team in their age group. Some age groups have multiple teams and athletes are divided up based on their ability and the club's needs.

CLUBS

Clubs are the organizations that field age group teams in tournaments. They provide the structure to allow athletes to learn, develop, and compete in the sport.

ZONES

Each region of the country is split up into "Zones." Our zone is the Coastal California Zone (CCA). 

WHAT IS.....

ODP

The Olympic Development Program (ODP) serves as the primary feeder system for the USA Water Polo Youth, Cadet, and Development National Teams. The foundation of ODP is a systematic, long-term approach to athlete, coach, and referee development through a year-round training program.

CCA

FUTURES' LEAGUE

JUNIOR OLYMPICS

This developmental league is open to all USA Water Polo zones. Broken into two sessions, Fall (FAGL) and WInter/Spring.

Futures WPL’s mission is to showcase, through its highly competitive environment, the collective talents and efforts of all those who are involved and to continue to foster the development of our sport’s future.
