About the project

The Water Polo WA team are excited to announce our partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation to provide our members with what will be our best grand final weekend yet!

This initiative is in response to feedback from WPWAI members and people within the Western Australian water polo community. We have engaged with the Australian Sports Foundation in order to accelerate the growth of water polo in WA and provide a better experience for our members.

In our inaugural crowd funding attempt, our goal is to raise $7,500 so we can rejuvenate the SunSmart WPWAI Junior Competition and WPWAI Senior Competition Grand Final Weekend. All money raised will fund the live streaming of games for BOTH days of competition. Previously, we have only been able to provide this for the SunSmart WPWAI Junior Games.

We have received incredible feedback after live streaming the 2014-15 and 2015-16 SunSmart WPWAI Junior Grand Final games. This initiative has allowed family and friends to watch the games when they cannot attend and players to re-live the moments by watching the game at a later date via YouTube.

Due to the success of live streaming, there has been a demand for the same service to be provided for the senior and premier league competitions. Our decision to take part in this fundraising bid has been fueled by both this feedback and our desire to provide the best experience possible for everyone in the Western Australian water polo Community.

We ask you to join with us in taking "water polo to people's living rooms" and making a donation through the ASF's Fundraising4Sport Program.

All donations are tax-deductible through the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF) and personal donations are also gratefully received.

Please donate and encourage your friends to donate to help make the 2016-17 Grand Final Weekend the best yet!
