Club Policies

USA Waterpolo Registration

You need a valid USA Water Polo number to play or practice with Western Club. USA Water Polo provides insurance for the athletes and sponsors national events such as Junior Olympics.  If you do not provide a valid number, you will not be allowed to get in the pool.  You can sign up for a USA Water Polo membership online at 

Western Club ID # 34000 

Practice Times

Practice start time is the time that the Coach will begin practice, so athletes are expected to arrive 1 hour prior to posted practice start times. Athletes use this early arrival time for important dry land stretching and workout, which helps to reduce the chance of injuries and help the player to get strong. Also, please be prompt when picking up your child however for liability purposes, we must insist that all players are picked up promptly after practice. 

Pool Facilities

We purchase pool time from the Van Nuys Sherman Oaks, West Hollywood pools and Hollywood pool and do our best to adhere to posted practice times.  While it doesn’t happen often, pools do break down from time to time. When this happens, we will do our best to inform you as soon as an issue is brought to our attention. 

As “renters” and guests, it is very important that the facility we use is treated respectfully. All items brought to the pool deck (practices and games) by our players should leave with our players. All trash must be cleaned up and all equipment cleared. The space should always be left in better condition than we found it. Please make sure that athletes have all of their belongings when leaving the pool deck. Mistreatment of the facilities we use could result in our losing the right to rent in the future, so please be sure to adhere to this policy. 

Support Your Child

Supporting your child by giving encouragement and showing interest in their team is very important. Teach your child that good sportsmanship, hard work and an honest effort are often more important than victory - that way your child will always be a winner despite the outcome of the game!
