We hope this message finds you well. First and foremost, we want to express our gratitude for your willingness to support us during this time. As we continue to raise funds for our cause, we kindly request that you do not donate through the provided PayPal link. We have discovered that a significant percentage of your donation will be taken as a "tax" by the platform. In light of this, we have set up a personal account [payNow/payLah to +65 9028 9177 (Joe Ee)] where 100% of your donation will go towards our cause. We appreciate any amount you can give and are grateful for your generosity.

We are a dedicated group of canoe polo athletes representing various tertiary institutions and currently training as part of the National U21 Canoe Polo Squad. Our goal is to compete in the upcoming Asia Canoe Polo Championship, which will take place in Singapore from November 9th to 12th, 2023.

Canoe polo, also known as kayak polo, is an exhilarating and fast-paced team sport that combines elements of basketball, kayaking, and water polo. With a rich history spanning over three decades, it is played in a designated area of flat water, with two teams of five players each vying to score goals by throwing a water polo ball into the opposing team's suspended goal net.

To ensure that we are well-prepared for the Asia Championship, we are currently undergoing rigorous training, dedicating 5-6 sessions per week. On weekdays, we train in our respective schools, and on weekends, we come together for national training. Canoe polo is an equipment-intensive sport, and the cost of equipment is relatively high. We are immensely grateful for the support of a private company that sponsors our current National training equipment, but this equipment is suitable for beginners and not sufficient for elite-level competition. Therefore, we have initiated a series of fundraising efforts to raise funds for the purchase of equipment required for training and competition over the next few years. It is crucial for us to have personal equipment that fits our individual physical attributes and positions to perform at the highest level.

The cost of a typical carbon boat ranges from $3,000 to $4,000, a carbon paddle costs between $400 to $500, and a helmet costs around $100 to $200. Thus, a full set of equipment would amount to approximately $4,500. With a squad comprising 12 men and 12 ladies, we have set a target of raising $100,000 collectively. The funds raised will be split equally among the squad to support personal equipment purchases, and any excess funds will be utilized to support local and overseas training and competitions.

We are fully committed to making every effort to secure the necessary funds for equipment as we strive to represent our country with pride and excel in the Asia Canoe Polo Championship. We greatly appreciate any support, whether it be through donations or sponsorships, to help us achieve our fundraising goal and compete at the highest level in this prestigious championship. Your support will make a significant difference in our pursuit of success and we are sincerely grateful for your generosity.


Thank you.
