The Toronto Triggerfish are a group of men and women who come together to learn and play the exciting and demanding sport of water polo.  We primarily serve Toronto's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community. We are open to all players regardless of experience, skill level or sexual orientation, however, due to insurance reasons the club is restricted to adults 18 years of age and older. The team is registered with the Ontario Waterpolo Association. 

Our Mission: To be a fun group for LGBT people (and a few cool straight folk too) - to play and learn a very invigorating sport; to welcome players of all abilities; to modify our workouts to the various skill levels of the players; to evolve as a group and develop programs to meet the desires and needs of our players; and to have excellent parties and socials!!

About Our Team

Our team has developed an excellent reputation for being very warm, friendly, and engaging - and we are darn proud of that reputation!  The team goes out of its way to welcome new players, helping to make sure you get your feet wet in as gentle a way as possible.  Players of all abilities are valued in our practices and scrimmages - you'll feel right at home.

Recreational or Competitive?g

Our team has found an effective way of accommodating for both recreational and competitive players.  Just want to splash around, have some fun, meet people, and learn a new game?  You will find lots of recreational players with the same desire.  Want to sprint hard, learn the technique, and advance your game - perhaps compete in a tournament or two?  Our competitive stream will push you to the max.There are separate recreational and competitive practices during the week - Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Depending on your experience or focus you can attend one of those weekday practices. Sunday is one big happy family - each week is something different.

What about out of the pool?

Our team is also very active from a volunteer standpoint.  We are blessed to have such an active group of men and women - no matter what the task, there is always someone who raises their hand and gets involved.  This is part of what led us to secure a $50,000 grant from the Trillium Foundation, to help us continue to build our fun and successful team.Is team spirit, camaraderie, and acceptance as important to you as getting a good workout, playing hard, and having fun in the pool?  If so - you'd be hard pressed to find a nicer bunch of people than the Triggerfish! Check out the Info for New Members page. In this section of the website, you'll find out how to jump in to the water with us, and get started!

What is the Downtown Aquatics Corporation?

The Downtown Aquatics Corporation (DAC) is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run organization, incorporated in the year 2000 to coordinate the activities of its three component clubs, Triggerfish Water Polo (est. 2001), Breathless Sychronized Swimming (est. 2007) and Triggerfish Swim (est. 2010). Through these clubs, the DAC strives to promote aquatic sports in Toronto in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities, and to support activities of mutual interest including, but not limited to, financial management, pool rental, club promotion, social activities and grant applications.
