Kathleen Dawson, President of Water Polo Canada.stated
During Martin’s tenure, the National Championship League (NCL) was also launched and grew to a maximum pre-pandemic participation level of more than 90 teams from across the country, generating more than $600,000 of revenues from outside the sport during its first five years. In addition, Martin oversaw the creation of the Club Assistance Program (CAP), a mechanism for funding WPC’s clubs and Member PSOs to run programs focused on coach and referee education, grassroots development, safe sport, and gender equity.
Good governance is so critical. Same vis-à-vis the members of our Athletes Council who have always displayed true commitment, outstanding maturity, and sound judgment. Athletes representation is pinnacle within an NSO. And I have so much admiration for our wonderful athletes, they are nothing short of amazing.
My trademark always has been to build and maintain strong partnerships within the Canadian sport system (and beyond) for the benefit of my organization of course, but also for the greater good of sport in our country. It has been a wonderful journey and I am so grateful to water polo and its people!” said Martin Goulet.
WPC is engaging a professional search firm to assist with the recruitment and hiring process and will post the position in the coming weeks.
