Water polo thriving in Saskatchewan thanks to talented coaches

While Water Polo Saskatchewan’s provincial program continues to thrive under the guidance of executive director and head coach Cyril Dorgigne, local clubs like the Weyburn Hurricanes are thriving under their own leadership as well.

For the Hurricanes, 2023 saw the program’s 9-and-under mixed club bring a provincial water polo championship for the first time since 2016.

Additionally, 9U Hurricanes head coach Megan Schick was named Water Polo Saskatchewan’s coach of the year for 2023. That marked the second consecutive year a Weyburn coach won that award, after Dave Edgerton received the same honour in 2022.

Edgerton says the Hurricanes created a 9U provincial program (also known as Minis) in 2016 in order to sustain the long-term growth of the club. That program was then adopted province-wide in 2017.
