Important Update – Canadian Water Polo Hall of Fame

(April 10, 2021 – Ottawa, ON) – In light of recent developments and the lingering effects of the pandemic, the Canadian Water Polo Hall of Fame (CWPHOF) Committee and Water Polo Canada (WPC) would like to offer the following update regarding the celebration of the inaugural class of inductees.

The CWPHOF Committee and WPC would like to thank the Canadian water polo community for their outstanding support so far in 2021, our inaugural year. In response to our call for nominations for the CWPHOF, we received a total of 39 submissions across eight categories; a level of participation that was very encouraging and confirmed the passion for our sport that many Canadians feel but too seldom celebrate.

When we began this initiative in 2020, we expected to celebrate our first class of inductees at an event associated with the 2021 National Finals, and then when the National Championship League (NCL) was cancelled, our expectations shifted to a celebration linked to the May/June 2021 Championship Tournaments hosted by Water Polo Canada. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic and its repercussions have persisted, and regular sports participation has not yet resumed.

The mandate of the CWPHOF is to recognize and celebrate the outstanding achievements and contributions of Canadians to the sport of water polo. While we are eager to do this as soon as possible, we have made the decision to postpone the announcement of the 2021 inductees list until the sport we love is back in full swing, thereby helping ensure that the event will receive the attention it deserves.

Be sure to follow the Water Polo Canada website and social media channels as more information will be communicated in the coming months.
