SEND FOOD & DRINK ON BUS TRIPS

When players take these long bus trips for games, please make sure they bring healthy snacks and drinks.  There may not be any opportunity to purchase anything, so don't just give them money. The Snack Shack provides some water/Gatorade for the games, but each player should at least bring a reusable water bottle.

QUICK & EASY WAY TO RAISE MONEY FOR LCWP

For a limited time, an insurance company that sponsors youth sports will donate money to LCWP for each person who pledges to promote good sportsmanship. All LCWP parents (and your relatives and friends) are strongly encouraged to make this pledge. Just go to PlayPositive Pledge, selecting USA Water Polo when asked your affiliation. They ask for your email address, but you will not get emails from them unless you sign up for their newsletters.

TEAM UNIFORMS

For Club games, players wear 1) a Club swimsuit imprinted with "LCWP," and 2) a white team polo shirt personalized with the player's last name. The white shirt is the same one used for LCHS away games.

When playing for LCHS, players must wear LCHS's uniform, consisting of 1) a LCHS swimsuit imprinted with "LC," 2) two team polo shirts personalized with the player's last name, a red shirt for home games and a white shirt for away games, and 3) team shorts. CIF rules prohibit wearing a club suit in a high school game.

Team suits, shirts and shorts should be ordered at least a month before the first game. We also have chairs and other optional items. See the "Apparel and More" page of this website, to the left.
