Water Polo Canada welcomes new Pathway Manager

(June 2, 2020 – Ottawa, ON) - Water Polo Canada (WPC) is pleased to announce the hiring of Mr. Andrew Muir as the Pathway Manager of our National Sport Organization.

In his role, Andrew will be responsible for the development and implementation of Water Polo Canada’s High Performance (HP) Development Pathway programs designed to identify and develop an ongoing supply of talented athletes across both genders. Pairing athlete development, he will also contribute to the implementation of WPCs coach education programs and competition structures to support overall system alignment. Andrew’s role will respond to nationwide needs as it relates to our HP Development programs, and he will also have a significant presence in western Canada.


Water Polo Canada takes very seriously the concerns around COVID-19 and how it will affect our HP programming in the future. In order to address some of the challenges faced by our community, the responsibilities of the Pathway Manager may be modified along the way. WPC remains committed to supporting the Canadian water polo community during this difficult time.


This announcement marks the return of Andrew Muir with Water Polo Canada. Muir acted as an Assistant coach with Men’s National Team for eight years, and he also worked with the Age Group National Team Program as a technical advisor for more than three years. Over the past years, Muir has gained significant experience in operational improvement and project management. This combination of technical expertise and management experience is extremely valuable and will benefit our overall development system.


“It is with great pleasure that we announce the return of Andrew Muir as Pathway Manager for Water Polo Canada. He brings a wealth of international and domestic water polo experience paired with a great project management background that will support Water Polo Canada’s objectives in building a successful and aligned pathway,” – Justin Oliveira, Water Polo Canada High Performance Director.


“I am both grateful and elated to be returning to Water Polo Canada with a newfound passion for the sport. Through my time working as a management consultant, I continuously found practical applications that could be transferred and be effective in all levels of sport and especially Water Polo. With this newfound perspective, I am very excited in my role to take my experience in building a management operating system focused on continuous improvement and bring it to Water Polo Canada. I am very excited to build on the foundations of all those who have come before while embracing the challenge of developing both our athlete and coach pathways. I have been connected to the water polo community my entire life, and I will always hold it in very high esteem. Through collaboration, I hope to provide valuable tools and resources to encourage and empower both our current membership and future membership alike.”- Andrew Muir, Water Polo Canada Pathway Manager.
