Provincial Training Centre and Team BC

The Provincial Training Centre (PTC) provides a contemporary sports environment that delivers quality training and competition opportunities for athletes with provincial, post-secondary, or national team aspirations. The PTC offers a holistic and integrated approach that follows the Long-Term Development pathway.

  • Performance Pathway (Train to Compete) - 17U, 19U, Post-Secondary

Training and competition are aligned with Canadian water polo technical and tactical foundations and supported by sports research to support athletes toward their water polo goals. Areas of focus include: 

  • Skill development

  • Improve physical fitness

  • Strength and conditioning

  • Mental performance

  • Sport nutrition

  • Rest, recovery, and injury prevention

  • Post-secondary recruitment support


The Team BC program is an extension of the PTC, where athletes represent BC in domestic and international competitions. ​
