Dear athletes and families,

To those who have already started their fundraising efforts to help support our not-for-profit organization, we thank you!!

For those who are yet to start, here’s another fun Youtube video to send to your friends and family to get the word out…let’s get those pledges in and do what we can to win the pizza party!!

If you know of a business that may be interested in sponsoring our event, please ask them to get in touch with us at:

Just as a reminder, the Wave-A-Thon will take place on Saturday, November 6th at various pools (Brewer, Nepean Sportsplex, the University of Ottawa, and Carleton University). All regular practices will be suspended for this Saturday and a special schedule will be in place. Athletes will be divided into their respective groups and each group will have an allotted time slot to complete their swim. Team Managers will be sending out the confirmed schedule by the end of this week. Coaches and volunteers will be the length counters on the day of the event. As this is the club’s biggest fundraising event, it is expected that every athlete participates.

Time for each group:

  • 45 minutes – 13U Comp, 15U Comp, 18U Comp, 13U &15U Rec, 16+ Active for Life,Coaches (25 meters = 1 length)
  • 30 minutes – Junior WAVES (25 meters = 1 length)

Pledges can be made per length, or as a flat donation. Pledges will be collected till Nov.10th.

Each time you get a pledge, please use this google form to keep track of it:

There will be prizes for the top fundraisers in addition to the pizza party for the top fundraising team!!

We have had some inquiries regarding parents/guests being allowed to attend the Wave-a-thon. We’re looking into this and working with each venue to understand their requirements for attendees. We will share further information regarding this as soon as it’s available.

Lastly, coaches have been handing out “Goal Sheets” to each athlete to decorate and bring back this week. Coaches will announce one winner from each age group based on the best decorated and most creative Goal Sheet. The winners will receive a special Water Polo Canada prized item.  You can submit it in person to the coaches and/or send it via email to: Winners will be announced on Halloween (Sunday, October 31st)!

Good luck to all!
