Located in Surrey, B.C.
The Surrey Water Polo Club offers an introductory swim program, a developmental water polo program known as the Surrey Orcas, and a high performance program known as the West Coast Warriors. We are an inclusive community based club that offers programs to male and female players from 5 years of age to adult.
Surrey Water Polo Club offer a shallow water program for non and beginning swimmers, introductory sessions for school gym classes, development sessions and BCPL and NCL performance programs.
The Surrey Orcas swim out of the Guildford Recreation Centre and the Surrey Sport and Leisure Centre in Surrey, BC.
The Surrey Water Polo Club was established in 1999 with 26 rostered athletes. Today we have grown to just over 100 families involved in our club in our different programs throughout the year.
The Surrey Water Polo Club is a member of Water Polo Canada and Water Polo West throughout the September to May winter playing season. The club may also join the BCSSA (BC Summer Swimming Association) for the summer season.
The focus of the club is to provide players with an opportunity to engage in positive physical activity, to develop proper technique, traits of good sportsmanship and team spirit while being part of a positive environment that fosters friendship building amongst its athletes. We aim to provide our athletes with exposure to a variety of experiences that are reflective of their ability level and that is conducive to providing a positive atmosphere that nurtures personal growth. With an emphasis to foster a passion for water polo and enjoyment of the sport, Surrey Water Polo creates a fun environment through which players can advance their skills to the next level. From introductory to recreational to high-performance, our programs enable athletes to advance their skills learning essential life skills along the way that extend beyond the pool to their lives outside of the sport.
These skills include (but are not limited to):
- Character development
- Physical Literacy and Development
- Goal setting
- Community Building
