If you haven't paid your participation fee please do so:
Participation fee pays for coaches salaries, our year end banquet, equipment, and senior night. If we do not receive enough participation then we have to take away from our tiny budget.
Acalanes Student Body Participation Fee - We only have 75% contribution, let's try to get that higher like we did last year. Acalanes Webstore -> Sports -> Waterpolo Boys
Coaches stipend(year end gift/bonus) is funded by the Foundation so any amount is appreciated. The team does not collect a separate year end gift for coaches, your donation covers it and also helps to develop athletes in the off season.
Lafayette Water Polo Foundation (AKA Dons 5 Meter Club) - We only have 50% of our team donating, let's try to beat the girls, they're at 65% LWPF Donation
Boosters Bash is later in the year when the raffle winner will be announced, make sure to get your tickets and money to Danielle.

Athlete and Parent Contact Information (Google form)
Athletic Team Carpooling - COVID Guidance and Protocols from AUHSD
As a reminder, in order to transport students to and from events, you must fill out the volunteer personal automobile form (linked here).
If you volunteer to transport students to and from athletic events, you are agreeing to transport students regardless of vaccination status and it is inappropriate for parent volunteers to inquire regarding the vaccination status of the athletes that they are transporting. Everyone within the car, including the parent volunteer, must wear a mask for the entirety of the time in the car - this is in accordance with CDPH requirements that all schools require indoor masking. It is recommended that windows be down when possible.
We understand that during this difficult time, you may not feel comfortable volunteering to drive our students. We respect your decision and we thank those of you who continue to transport our kids.
