OPPORTUNITIES

Water polo teaches skills that go beyond the pool and presents countless opportunities for young athletes. Riptides teaches athletes the importance of commitment, accountability, resilience, teamwork and goal setting. These transferable skills not only help athletes become the best athletes they can be, but also help them succeed as students, employees and leaders in our community.

 

As athletes move up through the age groups they will be presented with opportunities to travel across Canada or internationally for league competition and training. Edmonton is proud to have countless alumni who have competed for Team Alberta, Canadian National Teams and at NCAA Collegiate programs. Many senior athletes in the Edmonton community speak to the life skills that water polo has taught them and shaped who they are today.

TESTIMONIALS

Water polo has provided me with many opportunities that have shaped the person I am today. With water polo I have traveled the world, earned my undergraduate degree from the University of California, Berkeley, and played professionally in Europe. During my career I have had the incredible privilege to represent my country, province and community on the international stage. Being a member of Team Canada is an honour and a truly humbling experience.

Water polo has given me the opportunity to make life-long friends and travel to places that I would have never thought possible. Most importantly, water polo has provided me the opportunity to pursue a Finance Degree while continuing to play the sport I love at the Division 1 level.

Water polo has given me so many opportunities to meet new friends and form special bonds with teammates from around the world. It has also given me the chance to travel to new places across Canada and around the world. Through water polo I was given the opportunity to go to school and get an education while playing a sport I love.
