About Parkland Polo Bears

General Info

Parkland Water Polo Club was formed in 1999 and incorporated as a Society in 2004.

We exist to develop and promote the sport of water polo in Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, Parkland County, Edmonton, and Surrounding Areas. To that end, we arrange practices, procure pool times, and play inter-club games and tournaments. The Club was created so that players could experience community water polo, develop water polo skills, and have fun. We maintain affiliations with the Alberta Water Polo Association and Water Polo Canada.

Typical player ages range from seven to thirteen, but we’ve had players as young as six and are now offering a place for fourteen to seventeen with W4s. We love the game, and our mission is to grow the sport. We strive to build self-esteem, character, teamwork, and a strong work ethic, and we encourage all players to apply these values to all aspects of their lives.

Early in a player’s development, the focus is on learning skills, building fitness, teamwork, and having fun. As players develop, there are opportunities available for them to play at a highly competitive level. Through commitment and training, players can have the chance to play at international tournaments and on provincial and national teams. Also, water polo is played extensively at Canadian and U.S. universities and colleges. These institutions are always looking for dedicated and talented players and scholarships may be available.
