  • Providing oversight of local activities to ensure they are conducted in a manner consistent with USAWP's Statement of Ethics and Values, as well as the policies and procedures within this manual and USA Water Polo's Codes of Conduct for Athletes, Coaches and Referees

  • Wisely using the resources available to the Zone to promote the sport of water polo and to increase the number of USAWP members in the Zone, and the quality of play, instruction and competition within the Zone.
