Our Story

The Toronto Triggerfish Water Polo club is a group of people who come together to learn and play the exciting and demanding sport of water polo. We serve Toronto's LGBTQ+ and allied communities, including but not limited to persons who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, intersex, pansexual, two-spirit, asexual, non-binary and/or genderfluid. Toronto Triggerfish Water Polo operates as a business unit of the Downtown Aquatics Corporation (DAC) and is registered with Ontario Water Polo (OWP), and Water Polo Canada (WPC).

The Toronto Triggerfish Water Polo club’s mission is to bring the sport of water polo to Toronto’s LGBTQ+ and allied communities, and to promote personal development in sport, through athletic participation, volunteerism, community activities, and sports leadership that is inclusive.


Our Story - Women_s Team.jpg


The Triggerfish recognize the under representation of female participation within sport, and particularly water polo. We are committed to encouraging participation of female identified athletes. Each month we hold a women's practice for these members (all level inclusive) led by Coach Kirsten. This gives our female identified athletes the opportunity to train as a team.

Outside of training, we offer opportunities for these members to participate as a team at both our Polopalooza tournament and those offered by our allied organizations. Elsewhere, in order to maintain price equity with our male identified members, women's full-body suits are sold at a subsidized rate.
