Team BC Water Polo Takes “Bronze Bronze”

That is not a typo – You read that correctly. Team BC’s U19 Men and U19 Women each captured bronze at Water Polo Canada’s 2023 National Provincial Championships hosted in Montreal, QC (July 5-9, 2023).

The podium success achieved at the nationals can in large part be attributed to the leadership and decision of Water Polo West to launch and support a Provincial Training Centre in 2020. The program, hosted at the UBC Aquatic Centre since its inception, has allowed the Team BC program to come back after what had been an 8-year hiatus.

A special shout-out to Christina Kouvousis, Aquatic Program Associate at the UBC Aquatic Centre, for her role as Head Coach with Team BC Water Polo. Prior to joining UBC Athletics & Recreation six months ago Christina was the Sport Development Coordinator with Water Polo West and committed to supporting the program through to this year’s national championships. Well done!
