Coaches education requirements from American Water Polo

American Water Polo is adopting a new policy, effective March 20, 2019. The purpose is to provide the safest possible environment for our athletes to enjoy the great sport of water polo.

Certification Overview

The certification process involves these elements:

A coach must complete and submit all three certifications to become AWP Safety Certified (AWPSC). As of March 15th, only coaches that are AWPSC will be listed as active members and covered by AWP insurance policies.

Send HEADS UP and SafeSport certificates via email to member@americanwaterpolo.org  or office@americanwaterpolo.org

Club Requirements

Every club is required to have at least one individual that is AWPSC on deck during an activity involving AWP member athletes. Teams without an AWPSC coach will be ineligible for AWP competition.

Time and Cost

We recognize that these certifications will take the following time:

  • Background Check                                        5 min
  • Safe Sport Training                                       90 min
  • HEADS UP Training for Concussions            60 min

We appreciate your efforts and want to partner with you to keep your athletes safe and healthy. That is why American Water Polo will pay all costs involved with obtaining background clearances and Safe Sport Training (HEADS UP training is free).

Thanks in advance for your participation!

Updated: Out of town visitors joined for scrimmage on Tuesday, January 22, 2019, at CV

Update:

Salem’s women water polo players came up Interstate 79 in a team van for a long-session of continual water polo play, scoreless, scrimmage-style. Salem had two on its bench. Renegades had three. Everyone got lots of action.

In the future weeks, Salem’s first games of the season include the opponents of Harvard and Bucknell.

Salem’s squad features three players from Australia (all from Brisbane area), and two from California, plus others from Italy, Greece, Romania, Ohio and The Netherlands. Nearly all of the Salem players are freshmen too.

Prior

The event is confirmed. Water polo practice on Tuesday, January 22, 2019, is going to include some out of town college players from Salem, WV. Get over to play, watch, help, cheer, or swim in the other pool from 7:30 to 9 pm.

If you are interested, give Coach Mark a call or text, 412-298-3432.
