Water Polo Canada announces Women’s National Team selection for 2019 UANA Cup

(Montreal, QC, January 8, 2019) – Water Polo Canada has announced the 13 players that will represent Canada at the 2019 UANA Cup (January 22-26, 2019) in Sao Paulo. This year, three nations will battle for the two spots available for the 2019 FINA World Aquatics Championships in Gwangju, South Korea. Canada, Brazil, and Cuba will face each other in a round-robin tournament to determine who will represent the Americas next summer.

Our main objective at this UANA Cup is to qualify for the 2019 World Championships in Gwangju next summer. Our team will include a selection of senior and junior athletes training in Canada, NCAA athletes and girls playing in Italy’s Serie A. This tournament is an opportunity to come together as a team and to consolidate the skills we developed last summer and during our training camp in the fall .” mentioned David Paradelo, Women’s National Team Head Coach.

This competition will showcase young talented athletes who will be making their first trip with the senior women’s national team. They will be joined by many veteran players who will help guide the Canadian squad to its qualification for the 2019 World Championships. Here’s the selection for the 2019 UANA Cup:
