History of Water Polo in BC

The British Columbia Water Polo Association was founded in 1967 to promote, develop and administer the sport of Water Polo in the province.

Although water polo was played in the early 1900's in Vancouver, it was in the 1950's that water polo, supported by the Canadian Amateur Swimming Association, began to be played regularly and a senior men's league began.

Starting as a small but enthusiastic group of clubs, water polo has grown to over 1,000 members of all ages and abilities throughout British Columbia.

In 2018, the member clubs formed a new Provincial Sports Organization for the sport of water polo. In 2019, Water Polo West hired its first Executive Director with the assistance of a grant from the Government of BC.
