Social Distance Practice Rules and Requirements

  • We are very fortunate to have access to our facility during these times. It is critical that all participants, parents and coaches understand and follow the social distance guidelines we have put in place to not only ensure everyone's safety, but to respect the trust placed in us by the Seminole County School Board and Patriot Aquatics.

  • All athletes must be USAWP current and join Patriot Aquatics (Club ID 119). In addition, all athletes must sign the USA WATER POLO COVID-19 RETURN TO PLAY RELEASE AND WAIVER on their account on usawp.org  

  • We reserve the right to cancel an athlete's membership for failure to follow the rules, both on part of the athlete and the parent.
