Development Centre

Description:

Step 1 on our Elite Pathway. The WPS Development Centre is an inclusive program that will lead athletes into our more competitive programs (HC and HSE), where the standards are elevated to create the best high-performance training environment as possible for our athletes. This program is offered in Regina, Weyburn, Saskatoon, and Estevan. 

Objectives:

WPS will be facilitating this program for targeted athletes to grow and develop into future provincial team members to represent the province on a national scale. Provincial team coaches will be given the opportunity to train, develop and monitor these athletes for future Team Sask competition selection opportunities. 

Training:

This program offers an additional high quality practice every week with a Provincial Team Coach.  

Eligible Events:

NCL 15U Events, Alberta Open 15U, National Provincial Championships 15U

Selection Policy:

WPS goes through a separate selection process for each event. All DC athletes are eligible to be selected to Team Sask 15U travelling to each event.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions and protocols in place by the local facilities, our program planning and selection may be dictated by the ever-changing health status throughout the province and host cities. WPS staff retain the right to follow the selection policy criteria outlined in our website. Full policy is detailed here under Operational Policies; "National and Provincial Events".

 

Water Polo Saskatchewan Development Centre is NOT a substitution to your local club competitive program. This is an ADDITIONAL training service available for your child to complete your club’s program and meet the Long Term Athlete Development requirements for the Competitive Stream.

 

 

 

 

More about our Elite Athlete Pathway

The Development Centre (DC), High Performance Centre (HC) and the High School Excellence (HSE) are critical programs offered and run by Water Polo Saskatchewan as identification of our high performance athlete pathway.  

Every year Water Polo Saskatchewan is evaluating its athletes using the operation policies you can find at http://www.wpsask.ca/about/policies/. Identified athletes are then invited to join the DC, HC or HSE. However any athlete who hasn’t been invited at the beginning of the season can ask for a skills assessment in order to be accepted in the DC, HC or HSE program. The following document outlines the WPS programs and goals, as well as the tests performed for each level and the evaluation criterion.

*This test is not to be used later on for the Team Sask selection. Team selection will be done following WPS operation policies*.
