Afternoon Coaches,

We are releasing out tentative schedule this afternoon. It is available on Team Snap Tournament (iOS and Android), as well as on our website. Scores will be updated in the app and on the website as games are played.

Schedule / Results Link: https://www.floridawaterpolo.org/springintheswamp/

Verified USAWP Rosters: USAWP Refs will be enforcing verified rosters with picture ID’s. Athletes should either have their pictures on the USAWP ID (on the roster) or have a valid picture ID. Athletes / Coaches also have to have a Covid Release form on file with USAWP to get your roster verified. (You can find this in your the athlete / coaches personal profile under document verifications). Refs will force your team to forfeit games if you cannot produce a valid roster with ID’s. You should plan to have these done by Thursday incase there are any issues that need to be resolved by USAWP. You can email events@usawaterpolo.org if you are stuck with the rostering system.

There will be two pools this weekend, the pools are about 5 /10 minutes away from each other so please plan accordingly. When parking on campus please mind parking signs, parking is strictly enforced on the UF Campus (even on the weekends). Best location to park on the Florida Campus is in the O’Connell Center Parking lot, which is free on the weekends, as long as you park in Green / Orange. See map attached. The pool entrance is to the west side of the pool.

When at NE Pool the Entrance is behind the pool, please instruct your athletes / coaches / spectators to use the back gate of the facility, see included map.

Welcome Packets: Coaches please pick up your teams welcome packet before your first game from the score keepers table at your first game’s pool. Your teams weekend passes are in the envelope.

Tournament Merchandise will be available for purchase at NE Pool all weekend.

Spectators: Spectators are allowed this year at both Florida Pool and NE Pool. Spectator passes are available for $20 for both pools and all weekend (cash only at the Florida Pool location, NE credit card or cash).
