The Olympic Development Program (ODP) at USA Water Polo is in the process of recruiting coaches for our 2018-2019 ODP Cycle in both boys and girls programs. If there are any coaches in the Pacific Northwest Zone that are interested in coaching ODP next year, please have them contact Bryan Lynton at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Pacific Northwest and Hawaii zone is throwing our second ZED camp of the year. This camp will be run by Olympian Heather Moody and was coordinated by board member Steve Sessa.

On Jan 27th 2018 the PNW&H USAWP Zone board unanimously voted to pass the “PNW&H Zone Regional Assignor Policy & Procedure”. This allows all tournament hosts in Oregon or Washington to choose their own tournament assigner from a list of Approved Regional Assignors.
