Regina Water Polo Association
We are Regina's ONLY developmental, recreational & competitive water polo club. We create an environment for athletes to learn, succeed & have fun!
The Regina Water Polo Association (RWPA) was rebranded ARMADA for the 2014/15 season after being known as the Piranhas & Squids for years. This was done to distinguish the organization from the Piranhas Summer Swimming Club. RWPA filled the void left by water polo's dismissal from the Regina High Schools Athletics Association in the late 1990's.
ARMADA (noun): a fleet of warships
WATER POLO (noun): a goal game that involves swimming, wrestling & fighting for a ball, often all at the same time
FLEET (noun): a group operated under unified control
We are excited to introduce our coaching staff for the 2019/20 season! Their knowledge & understanding of the game will help advance your child's water polo skills. Their coaching expertise will help develop your child's life skills. We are fortunate to have them and are looking forward to a great year!
Elite Men's Coach
Dave has been involved with the local water polo scene since the 1970's. His team recently finished 4th at USA Water Polo's Masters National Championship.
Elite Women's Coach
Rachel spent 11 years with us before heading to California to play for the University of the Pacific. She was a member of the youth & junior national teams.
Club Head Coach
Ethan is one of the few brave souls to leave BC & come to Sask. He coached the TeamSask 16UG in 2017/18 & 2018/19 and will be coaching the 16UB.
Jason joined our fleet in 2018, but is a familiar face on deck. He has been involved with several local swim clubs since coming from England in 2003.
Crystal has been our coach coordinator since 2012. Both of her daughters went through our program and played competitively with Water Polo Sask.
Board of Directors
Delegates are elected at the association's Annual General Meeting. Roles are elected in alternating years. The president, manager & treasurer are elected in even years; the registrar and secretary in odd years. Two members-at-large are elected every year and serve a two year term.
Fundraising opportunities are provided to families of competitive athletes to help cover out of pocket costs. Credits can be used towards registration fees and/or travel costs. If you would like to be added to a sign-up list, please contact the appropriate coordinator. These volunteers are not RWPA Board members. They spend hours organizing these opportunities for our membership. Next time you see them, thank them for their effort. If you have a fundraising idea you would like to pass on, please let Cheryl Keck know.
