Trial Membership

If you are new to SoPen Water Polo and interested in trying two sessions, this is how it works:

  • The athlete must register for a USWP Membership and also for SoPen prior to attending any practices

  • Register for a USWP Membership* ( first because you will need to enter your membership information when registering for SoPen.

  • Then, register online for the current SoPen session.

  • Athletes attend the first two sessions. After these two sessions, players may decide to withdraw or continue. If you decide to withdraw, please contact

  • SoPen coaches are looking to make the program as successful as possible for all players. This means we have a requisite level of experience for players and may determine that your son needs more fundamental skill practice before joining a SoPen session. Should coaches determine that a player is not playing at the requisite level, SoPen will refund the full registration payment.

USA Water Polo Membership

Please make sure you establish/renew your USA Water Polo membership before registration.  There is no participation in SoPen without this membership for insurance purposes. If you are only participating in SoPen and not planning to play in any national tournaments with another club (i.e. Junior Olympics), you can choose a SILVER ATHLETE Water Polo membership. Register at and select "Silver Athlete."
