Water Polo Canada to launch the Canadian Water Polo Hall of Fame

(July 29, 2020 – Ottawa, ON) – Water Polo Canada (WPC) is pleased to announce its plan to launch the Canadian Water Polo Hall of Fame (CWPHOF) in 2020 with the first inductions in 2021.

The purpose of the CWPHOF is to recognize and celebrate Canadian water polo teams and athletes' accomplishments, thereby fostering water polo's growth and enhancing the sport's visibility in Canada. Each year, the CWPHOF will recognize outstanding contributions and performances by groups and individuals in eight categories: Teams, Athletes, Coaches, Officials, Builders, Clubs, Historical Figures and Distinguished Alumni.

The CWPHOF is a project spearheaded by WPC alumni David Hart, and it has gained considerable support in recent years. WPC is pleased to finally see it come to fruition with the help of Alumni Ambassador Bill Meyer. The inaugural Hall of Fame Committee will be composed of the following people, who will each serve on the Committee for a minimum of two years (2020-2022).

2020 Hall of Fame Committee

  • David Hart (Chair)
  • Bill Shaw
  • Marilyn Thorington
  • Noah Miller
  • Marie-Claude Deslières
  • Christine Robinson
  • Mark Block
  • Bill Meyer

“The CWPHOF will provide a unique opportunity to highlight important accomplishments and to connect our present and future members with those from our sport’s illustrious past,” indicated David Hart, Chair of the Hall of Fame Committee.

This project will allow the community to revisit the rich history of Canadian water polo, and regional chapters will be established across Canada as part of the Hall of Fame. Water Polo Canada is looking forward to the official launch and recognizing our first class of inductees. We invite our past and present athletes to join WPC’s National Team Alumni Group on Facebook and follow WPC on social media for the latest news.
