    Team Coaches and Administrators:

    Irvine Kahuna and SET Water Polo are pleased to announce the 7th Annual Evan Cousineau Cup benefiting the Be a Hero, Become a Donor Foundation. Evan was an inspiration and we continue to honor him by coming together and playing water polo, which he loved so much. To date the Evan Cousineau Cup has raised $145,000+ through the tournament, silent auction and generous donations. The Funds are used by the foundation to raise awareness and most importantly staff events for people to get swabbed and join the Registry. You will see booths set up at various pools, please encourage anyone over 18 to swab, its painless and you may save a life. The event has now seen three matches after swabbing at the EC Cup.
