Strategic Plan

Message from the President

On behalf of the Board it is with much pleasure that I present the Water Polo Australia 2014-2018 Strategic Plan. As the Plan details, the 4 Strategic priorities for the sport of Water Polo in Australia over the next 4 years are in the areas of:

  • Governance & Management
  • High Performance
  • Sport Development &
  • Business Development/ Commercial Growth

The development of the Plan has been a consultative process, enabling input from WPA’s member States. This is entirely appropriate, as, while WPA is the custodian of the strategic direction of Australian water polo, the States are delegated the responsibility of organising and delivering our competitions. It is essential that there remains a strong unity of purpose between these 2 roles. The Plan has also benefited from the input of the Australian Sports Commission. The guidance provided by the ASC’s ‘Winning Edge’ strategy has heavily influenced our thinking in determining our mid term priorities.

Thank you to all those who assisted in the production of the Plan and a thank you in advance to all of you that will assist in its realisation.

Phil Garling
