Alberta Water Polo’s mission is to promote, govern, support, and advance water polo in the province of Alberta. In October 2020, they were inspired to improve awareness around safe sport and take a proactive rather than a reactive approach to values-based sport, and they made a commitment to True Sport not long after.
“Our commitment to True Sport has brought more awareness of the principles to our membership and strengthened our organization. When there is a decision to be made, we can refer back to the principles as a starting point,” said Virginia Dilger, Vice President of Alberta Water Polo. “Using True Sport as our approach to values-based sport communicates to parents that they can feel confident that we are putting athletes first and providing safe environments for them to learn and develop.”
