McInnes notes “we are excited to have KAP7 on board for another four years, and their support will extend across both grassroots and high-performance programs.

“KAP7 have been an important part of the Australian water polo family since 2018, and we’re excited to continue working with them in the buildup to our Olympic campaigns as well key national sporting events including the Australian Waterpolo League and Australian Youth Water Polo Championships.  

“We have seen the significant investment they are making to our sport right around the country and we value the opportunity to work with them hand in hand to collectively build water polo at all levels of the sport.”
