Dear Water Polo players, officials, and stakeholders,

So, after 7 days and nights of rain we had 7 days and nights of drought and we finally have our office back to normal (with a carpet that is nice and clean after a thorough rinse)!

There is still a chance that the whole building will require a major renovation, but that is in the hands of the insurers and certainly at this stage I do not foresee any major disruption to Water Polo.

Dear Water Polo players, officials, and stakeholders,

When I started in the role of GM, I was made aware of a few challenges facing our sport. One of these was the shortage of pool space for our current and future programs.

Of course, WPWA does not have its own facility, but we almost got there on the weekend.

I arrived on Sunday morning to find a massive flood in the Royal Life Saving building and over 1 inch of water in our offices. Perhaps not suitable for a ...

Dear Water Polo players, officials, and stakeholders,

Alright, so that came around very quickly!!

Several weeks into the role now and I have had the opportunity to attend two board meetings, meet with all our major stakeholders and even attend my first water polo training session (attended as a pool deck observer). What struck me was not only how hard the players were working in the pool, but more importantly the obvious fun that they were having and the positive engagement between the coach and the players. It ...
