We are raising the bar. College water polo has mapped out a strategic plan for the development and excellence of the sport at the school, which includes players, coaching, skills, facilities, and tech. Our goal is to improve the win rate and ranking both within the province and nationally, and firmly position College as a competitive force in the pool.
Mr Sheriff and the parents have identified some immediate needs for 2023 that will help raise the profile of the sport and greatly support this longer-term plan. With the recent acquisition of pool covers to retain heat and extend the training months, we have fallen outside of the 2023 budget allocation, so need to find alternative ways to raise the additional funds. We are planning a number of fundraising efforts during the year to assist the sport, and the boys, with much-needed equipment, facilities, and opportunities. The range of needs and details of associated costs are outlined below. Should anyone want to contribute to an aspect specifically we would greatly appreciate any sponsorships and donations. We also hope you will support our various upcoming fundraising events.
Specific needs for current players:
Revamp plans and accurate cost projections are work in progress. Should anyone be interested in working on this project, please get in touch with us.
