The Dave Perry Scholarship

Starting in 2013, the IWP Board of Directors is proud to announce The Dave Perry Scholarship in honor of legendary Coach Dave Perry. Annually IWP will award money per student athlete per year, as determined by the Selection Committee in support of athletes attending College and playing water polo.

The program is intended to assist those aspiring boy and girl water polo athletes to pursue their dreams in College while honoring the long and storied legacy of Coach Perry.
