We want to create a fun environment for all kids aged 5 and up, regardless of their swimming ability, through both recreational and competitive water polo programs. Our focus is on team spirit and the long-term athlete development (LTAD) set by Water Polo Canada.

Mission

Capital Wave aims to give athletes the opportunity to develop a positive self-image, achieve physical and mental strength, and attain goals through water polo. We work close with athletes to support their individual achievement in the sport, allowing them to strive for their ‘personal best’ both in and out of the pool. We believe our club fosters self-discipline, mutual respect, acceptance, and tolerance among coaches, athletes, parents, and volunteers.

The meaning of Wave

“A Capital Wave starts from calm water and takes the energy of lots of smaller waves in order to build into something impressive and powerful. Our club is made up of younger and older athletes, competitive and recreational players, parents and community members. The energy of each and every one of our club members contributes to the viability and sustainability of the club. No ‘one’ is more important than another. The Wave represents our collective energy and spirit. We are a strong community and only together will we be strong competitors both in and out of the pool. Wave is singular. One Wave, not many little waves. We support one another across our community.” – Kim Oastler
