Water Polo Australia

Water Polo Australia (WPA) is the national governing body for the sport of water polo in Australia. It is charged with the development and education of water polo players, officials, coaches and volunteers throughout Australia and with the conduct of competitions and championships for all levels of participation, interdependently with its Members and others.

As a global sport and part of a global society, WPA recognises its global responsibility to have a positive impact, not just on the sport we play but the environment we play in, the people we become, the community we support. 93% of Australians believe sport should have an important role in addressing the issues we face as a society, and 57% of Australians believe Sports Organisations have an obligation to use sports to address societal issues (The Starting Line Report Oct 2022).

In a time where Australians are more in tune with societal issues than ever before, Water Polo Australia also believes it has a responsibility to create an impact in society and drive global positive change through our sport and our community. The circles of influence and impact water polo has extends beyond our teams and competitions onto the people in our community, their respective communities and the world around us. Anchored within our National Strategic Framework where we strive to empower, play, develop, perform and prosper, our societal impact underpins our ability to succeed today in these ambitions but also be sustainable for the future.

Water Polo is more than just a sport we play

When considering the areas of impact WPA can have the strategic approach of the WPA Board is to;
• Create success today through our leadership;
• Inspire tomorrow through the environment we operate in, and;
• Ensure the water polo community is a team for life.
