About Our Club

Welcome to all new and returning members of the Shadow Water polo Club.

The Shadow Water Polo Club was founded in 1995. Our Club is non-profit and operated by parent volunteers.

The water polo program at Shadow has been crafted and nourished over time to bring out the best in every athlete.

Shadow is being developed as a full–service club dedicated not just to competitive success at the very highest levels, but to the personal growth and fulfillment of all athletes at all levels. We are now able to proudly claim that we are a totally full service competitive water polo club with athletes at the developmental level right through to the senior National and International level. As eager as our coaches are to develop provincial, national and world-class athletes, we also pride ourselves in our ability to offer great programs at all levels of competitive and recreational water polo.

Our mission at Shadow is to create the opportunity for successful experiences in recreational and competitive water polo, which may range from National and Olympic dreams at one end of the spectrum to physical fitness and fun at the other end.

We strongly believe in the fun of learning, the fun of participating, the fun of competing, and the fun of improving. It is the fun that goes with being part of a really great team. It is the fun of achieving success, both on your own terms, and up on the scoreboard, for everyone to see.

For the coaching staff, that kind of fun means a lot of hard work, along with at least an equal amount of personal satisfaction, of course. A large part of the coaching staffs’ role is teaching the mechanics of the game, and if I may say so, they do that very well. The other large part of our role is to inspire, motivate, and kindle a love of water polo, and to help each team and individual athlete pursue his or her dreams. I strongly believe our coaching staff also does that very well.

If you have any questions about any aspect of Shadow Water Polo Club, our programs, or the sport in general, please do not hesitate to e-mail me at shadowwaterpolo@yahoo.ca. I hope and expect that we will meet in the early days of the exciting season before us. For now, on behalf of the coaching staff, and Board members, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to the club.

See you at the pool,

Wendy Wright

President SWPC
