Prior experience with American River WPC is not required, though some water polo experience is recommended. Good swimming ability is a must. Athletes that are unsure if they will be able to keep up or if they will enjoy this level of water polo are encouraged to register and attend the first practice. There is a maximum number of spots available for each age group and registration does not guarantee a spot on the roster; we will try to avoid making cuts by creating additional teams in affected age groups.  Our focus at these age groups is to lay a solid foundation of fundamental while igniting a love for the sport.
