WA Water Polo is the peak body of the sport in Western Australia. Through the hard work of a small team of staff and a committed group of volunteers, we work to develop the participation of people in water polo as players, coaches, officials and club volunteers. Apart from running professional competitions at a variety of skill levels and age demographics, we provide support to major school competitions such as PSA, IGSSA and School Sport WA, and to major events such as the FINA World Championships, FINA World Masters and National Championships. Through the promotion of water polo on a metropolitan, regional and national basis we aim to create opportunity for all to be involved in the sport. Furthermore, we support the ongoing development of clubs and elite players through WAIS, the National Water Polo League and the Australian Water Polo National Teams.
