The three-day tournament in Surrey saw Fraser Valley win the boys division and Calgary Renegades, girls.

The 15U championships are part of Water Polo Canada’s National Championship League (NCL), created in 2014 to bring the domestic club age-group programs under a country-wide umbrella as part of a goal to promote the development of the sport. The NCL’s three categories of play are Senior, 17U and 15U.
