We have two incredible updates to share with you!
First off, we are currently ranked SECOND IN THE NATION! We are so proud of what we’ve accomplished so far and are more motivated than ever to keep working hard. The support from our friends, families, and fans mean the world to us and keep pushing us to succeed.

Secondly, we would like to thank our incredible donors for helping us reach our fundraising goal of $5,000! With the generous contributions of our friends and family, we were able to reach our goal in just fifteen days. We cannot express how incredibly grateful we are to our donors. The $5,000 will have an enormous positive impact on our team, but due to our high travel costs and high number of individuals on the team, $5,000 will not cover all of our foreseeable expenses for this season. The money already raised covers half of the cost of flights, meaning each player will have to pay a few hundred dollars just to fly to Nationals or we will only be able to transport half of our players. Since we practice and compete as a team, we have decided that we will be traveling as a team. As a result, we will be challenging ourselves to reach a new goal of $10,000. The additional $5,000 will allow us to travel and compete as a whole team. Any extra money will be used to fund hotels, food, and transportation costs incurred. Please consider donating to help us reach Nationals, not just as individuals, but as UCLA Women’s Club Water Polo.
Thank you again for your contributions,
UCLA Women's Club Water Polo
