Personal Highlights

My name is Evan van Niekerk. I am a water polo player from Vancouver. I am in grade 11 (16 years old) and I currently play for both the Junior and Youth National teams. Although it is a ways off I am beginning to think about my post secondary education and lately it has become my goal to go to school and play water polo in the states.
