About Water Polo West
Water Polo West was founded in late 2018, and was recognized as British Columbia's official Provincial Sports Organization (PSO) for water polo in on January 29, 2019 by Water Polo Canada. We are also recognized a by viaSport, the provincial government's lead delivery agency for sport programs. 

Water Polo West is guided by best practices in the sports management field. We are working with our partner PSOs across Canada, and with experienced sports administrators from other sports to provide strong leadership and support to water polo clubs in BC. 

Following these best practices, the Board of Directors is largely formed by volunteers outside of the water polo community. No board members have any financial interest in any water polo organizations.
