None of these accomplishments would have been possible without all of your support. We are so grateful for the culture you have allowed us to create, and for the faith you have shown in our coaches, athletes and programs.

All of this opportunity does not come without significant expense. The fees that families pay to the club do not cover the entire cost of providing these opportunities to our children. The cost to provide both the caliber of coaching and the expense of our pool time are considerable. We are asking that you join the Board of Trustees in contributing to the LA Premier Water Polo Club’s Annual Fund.

Your generosity enables us to provide the following:

Scholarships – We do not want financial constraints to ever be a reason not to pursue water polo or not to be a member of the Premier family. We are dedicated to providing the same opportunities to players and families of all economic backgrounds.

Coaches – A big reason for our success is the quality of coaching we have been able to provide. All of our coaches are accomplished, dedicated, and consistent. They provide and share innovative ideas and skills from their various backgrounds to create a logical, consistent plan for each player’s short-term and long-term development.

Pool Time and Resources – We want to ensure that we continue to have access to one of the finest facilities in the country, equipped with everything a team would need to make training efficient, fun, and effective.

Club Expansion – We are always looking to grow our age group program in a way that is consistent with the quality our club promises and that will improve the club experience for everyone.

Our goal is to continue to foster an environment that allows each athlete to grow into their potential as an athlete and more importantly, as young adults.

With that in mind, please consider a gift to the Club. Thank you for your support of the LA Premier Water Polo Club! Go Premier!!
