MWPA NEWS UPDATE #2
Update from MWPA Board of Directors
In response to the on-going uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, Manitoba Water Polo Association (MWPA) has made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Provincial Championships. Our Provincial Championships were scheduled over the weekends of April 24-26 and May 9-10 with events scheduled to take place at Pan Am Pool – Winnipeg.
As you may have also read, Water Polo Canada made the decision last week to cancel the remaining 2019/2020 NCL. Read more here.
Although our office is currently closed, MWPA staff continues to work remotely. If you have any questions or concerns, you can reach the MWPA Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Based on the current landscape and Covid-19 limitations, we will also be cancelling our year-end banquet, annual awards and Annual General Meeting. Our goal is to host our Annual General Meeting early Fall 2020.
We thank everyone again for your patience, commitment and support during this time.

Manitoba Water Polo will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates relating to resumption of play as the health situation develops. We feel this decision is in the best interest of protecting the health and safety of our athletes, coaches, referees and the health of all of our fellow Manitobans.
