Where does my WPSA membership money go?

WPSA receives only 12% of its income from Membership Fees. It is therefore important to allocate a proportion of Membership income to the operations of the Association to administer the Sport. In short, individual membership to WPSA goes towards:

20% – Water Polo Australia Insurance and Capitation for all SA members and clubs

80% – Operations of the Association (includes):

  • Encourage, promote, advance and administer Water Polo throughout SA
  • Arrange, conduct and regulate competitions in Water Polo
  • Submit and administer Grant projects
  • Other membership benefits (see following page for benefits)

 

Membership and Insurance

Water Polo SA’s individual membership fee is designed to capture the cost of insurance and capitation for everyone involved in Water Polo. By becoming a WPSA member, all members are insured under Water Polo Australia’s insurance policy which includes the following cover when performing Water Polo related activities:

  • Public Liability $20,000,000 any one occurrence
  • Products Liability $20,000,000 any one occurrence
  • Professional Indemnity $5,000,000 any one loss

A WPSA Supporter/Volunteer/Staff Membership is the only exception where the member is covered only when volunteering or is in an administrative role and is not covered when participating in training or competitions. Anyone involved in Water Polo activities at National, State or Club level must at a minimum have a WPSA Supporter/Volunteer/Staff Membership. This is a requirement to be covered by WPA’s insurance. A Supporter/Volunteer/Staff Member includes all of the following; Board Member, Committee Member, Referee, Coach, Team Manager or an Official. All members must complete their own registration on revSPORT and have to pay their WPSA membership fee at the time of registration. There will be no exceptions.

 

A Grade Membership

As the A Grade competition will be commencing in August 2018, players will need to renew their membership prior to the commencement of the competition to ensure they are eligible to participate and to be covered by insurance. This membership renewal will be valid until 30 June 2019.
