'Think. Act. Play.' is an initiative by Water Polo Australia and NSW Sport and Recreation. The program is designed to promote positive behaviour and respect in the following ways: 'Think' before you speak, 'Act' with respect and 'Play' in the spirit of the game. Each of these is relevant to everyone involved with the game. You can find out more at http://www.waterpoloaustralia.com.au/wpa-pilot-program-think-act-play/
Steven Large Cup - Sunday 6 December at Dawn Fraser Pool
This year the event is hosted by Balmain, and will also be a fundraiser for Cade & Kaley Wright (see more below in the poster). We're encouraging everyone to come along and support this event. The Women's game kicks off at 3pm, followed by the Men's game at 4.15pm. Spread the word!
Here's the text from the flyer that includes the fundraising link:
"One of our much loved Balmain couples Cade and Kaley Wright have just welcomed our newest tiger and their first child, baby Piper to the world. Four weeks before the birth of Piper, Cade was diagnosed with Follicular Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
Both Cade and Kaley played National League for the Tigers, with Cade playing over 250 games for the Tigers and is considered one of the toughest players to ever put on the black and gold cossie. Cade is in the middle of his chemotherapy treatment and will be off work for up to nine months.
The UTS Balmain Tigers are calling on the wider water polo community to raise funds for Cade and Kaley to alleviate the financial challenges associated with medical expenses and loss of income that will be incurred throughout the duration of his treatment.
We will be taking donations throughout the day for Cade and Kaley.

We’re delighted to announce our new Club Captains: congratulations Kelsey Baxter (Women’s Club Captain) and Hamish Cuthill (Men’s Club Captain), pictured below. Kelsey and Hamish are well known to many in the club and take over the reins from Elise Mirabito and Ryan Lear who have done a fantastic job in the role over the past two years. Thank you Elise, Ryan, Kelsey and Hamish!
By now, most players will have received an email from Drummoyne Water Polo Club that contains a link to an invoice regarding their summer fees.
Powered by a platform called ‘RevolutioniseSport’, it introduces the ability for players to pay via credit card (along with our traditional options of EFT, cash or cheque) and also provides us with another way we can easily communicate with teams.
If you haven’t received an email as yet, please check your junk folder. (It looks like the image below.)
Social events are a great way to grow friendships and build the Devils' community.
To this end, we’re delighted that Nicola Murphy has kindly agreed to lead a new initiative in this area – the DWPC Community & Events Committee.
This committee will create and organise social events for the club and Nicola is seeking help in the following ways:
- Suggestions for creative future events or initiatives
- Feedback about previous events (what’s worked/what’s not)
- Volunteers who are happy to help plan and/or run events
We’re hoping for support from everyone in the club – young, old, players, parents and supporters – anyone who’d like to lend a hand.
Hosted by DWPC National League, come along on Saturday 28 November at 7pm to Drummoyne Public School for a big night out of fun!
Tickets are $25 per person and there will be tables of 8.
Dress up Devils style or in Red & White!
