PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- Fans of the Collegiate Water Polo Association can now follow the league on Facebook, the #1 online social media site.
"This is another way to reach out to our water polo fans, and even those who are just sports fans in general," said CWPA Director of Communications Ed Haas. "Due to the size and complexity of the league, it is our intention to deliver up to the minute information on league events, awards, deadlines and schedule changes to student-athletes, parents, institution administrators and fans without a lag period."
The largest collegiate single-sport conference in the world, the Collegiate Water Polo Association is responsible for the oversight, scheduling and referee assignment for over 2,300 collegiate water polo games around the United States. Ranked among the largest athletic conferences in the world, with only the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) rivaling the number of institutions involved in the Collegiate Water Polo Association, the league is responsible for 33 divisions (18 men, 15 women) which encompass 154 colleges and universities. Approximately 4,500 student-athletes compete in the league which included 36 NCAA varsity teams and 207 club programs during the 2008-09 academic year.
Founded in February 2004 at Harvard University, Facebook is a social utility that helps people communicate more efficiently with their friends, family and coworkers. Anyone can sign up for Facebook and interact with the people they know in a trusted environment.
