Pilbara News - - Sport - Court­ney Fowler

Wa­ter Polo WA’s new­est af­fil­i­ated mem­ber group, Kar­ratha Wa­ter Polo As­so­ci­a­tion, has been named the Pow­er­Play Wa­ter Polo Western Aus­tralia Inc As­so­ci­a­tion of the Year for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year.

Since form­ing at the be­gin­ning of the 2013-14 sea­son, the KWPA has won nu­mer­ous ac­co­lades and hosted both the State and Na­tional Coun­try Wa­ter Polo As­so­ci­a­tion Cham­pi­onships.

A WPWAI spokesman said the KWPA had once again proven to be the most proac­tive and for­ward think­ing club in WA wa­ter polo.

“The KWPA has been built on the strong lead­er­ship of the com­mit­tee, who have been ably sup­ported by a strong mem­ber-based pop­u­la­tion,” he said.

“KWPA has built quickly to three clubs and is em­brac­ing good gov­er­nance, re­spon­si­ble op­er­at­ing with com­mu­nity pro­grams to show the way amongst WPWAI’s af­fil­i­ated mem­ber­ship.”

KWPA com­mit­tee spokes­woman Anouska An­gove said the club was ex­tremely proud to be named WPWAI As­so­ci­a­tion of the Year for the sec­ond year in a row.

She said the KWPA was about to com­mence its third sea­son at the Kar­ratha Leisure­plex and new mem­bers were welcome.

“Kar­ratha Wa­ter Polo As­so­ci­a­tion is gear­ing up for an ex­cit­ing 2015-16 sea­son,” she said.

“We are host­ing two come and try days to run through the rules and some skills on Au­gust 30 and Septem­ber 6.

“We cater for all lev­els of fit­ness and abil­ity, we hope to see you all in the pool.”

The Kar­ratha Wa­ter Polo sea­son of­fi­cially starts on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 10 and runs through to March.

Flippa Ball for ju­niors will re­turn to the pool in Term 4.
