Information for Parent Representatives

Every club that participates in Midlakes Water Polo must have one parent representative to sit on the Midlakes Water Polo Committee. Parent Representatives should also plan to attend all meetings of the Committee, and will also act as the primary liaison between their Club and the League.


Please remember that, as of the 2017 season, all water polo players must adhere to the same registration requirements as Midlakes swimmers. This means clubs are responsible for ensuring that athletes and parents have completed BOTH the Midlakes Hold Harmless Form AND Lystedt Act Concussion Information Sheet.
