About the project

WPA is raising money for the Australian Men’s U18 Team for the 2018 Youth World Championships being held in Szombathely, Hungary in August. All funds raised will go to supporting the players with costs associated with travelling to the tournament as well as supporting the players in the development pathway.

The FINA Youth World Water Polo Championships are a major benchmark event for the next generation of players, hoping one day to reach the Olympic Games. It is an opportunity gain valuable experience on the international stage.

Athletes selected in Australian Youth World Champs teams are required to self-fund the trip with the cost estimated to cost parents between $9,000-$10,000.

Due to the financial outlay required from parents, it can sometimes prohibit some athletes from participating, meaning that in some cases the most talented athletes are unable to participate due to costs.

All Donations over $2 are tax deductable.
