St- Lambert and CAMO clubs to host the 2016 National League Finals
Water Polo Canada is proud to officially announce the partnering clubs who will assist the national federation in the organization of National Championship League (NCL) finals for 16U, 19U and seniors divisions in 2016.
As part of the evolution of its national league, which was this year in its second season, Water Polo Canada had offered clubs operating in the city where final events are held the opportunity to become hosting partners. The clubs collaborating with WPC to set up these major events no longer automatically participate in the competition as was the case in 2015 but rather enter with Water Polo Canada into a mutually beneficial agreement with the objective of presenting high quality domestic events.
Any club in the Greater Montreal region who was enrolled in the LCC in 2015-2016, either in the 14U, 16U, 19U or seniors (MLWP) group, could submit a proposal. The clubs that Water Polo Canada selected as organizational partners for these important domestic competitions have distinguished themselves based on their competence and the dynamism of volunteers as well as based on their event management expertise.
CAMO received the mandate for the Major League Water Polo / Senior Nationals for both men and women. Held from 1 to 3 April at Complexe Sportif Claude-Robillard in Montreal, the event should bring together 12 teams and fifteen games. CAMO has considerable experience regarding the hosting of that specific event, including having organized the same competition in 2015.
The main event of the NCL season, the National Finals, will crown the 2016 Canadian Champions in the men's and women’s 16U and 19U divisions in the LCC. The proposal of the Saint-Lambert Water Polo Club was retained as host for the high stakes weekend.
Leaders and volunteers from the Saint-Lambert club clearly stated their intention to deliver a high quality water-polo event to the greater Montreal area. The 16 games between the 16 qualified teams will be well presented over two days on Friday, May 27 and Saturday. May 28. The majority of games will be played at the Centre Sportif du Parc Olympique, with a few games at Claude-Robillard Sports Complex. The event will conclude with the presentation of a prestigious gala welcoming the participating teams and local clubs, starting at 19:30 on Saturday the 28 and held in the historical site of the old Montreal Forum.
"I want to sincerely thank all the clubs that submitted a hosting bid and also congratulate the clubs of St-Lambert and CAMO who will have a very hands-on role this year," said the Executive Director of Water Polo Canada, Martin Goulet. "It is largely a tribute to the work and enthusiasm of individuals within our clubs that we can implement together superb domestic events for our young athletes.," he said.
