Water polo is a fast-paced, intense and exiting aquatic sport. With the Sydney Stingers, you'll swim, sprint, wrestle and improve your game technique in a supportive, LGBTIQ-friendly environment.
If you're a current or former water polo player or competitive swimmer, we'd like to hear from you – even if you've had some time off.
Alternatively, you may want to just try something new and make a bunch of friends. That's cool too. Our developmental squad caters for those not yet ready to play competitively. However, you must be a strong swimmer as a prerequisite.
No matter your level of experience or interest, the best way to start is by joining our next boot camp. Boot camp is an intense, 4 week introduction to the basics of water polo that anyone with a strong swimming background can join.
Our Autumn 2018 boot camp is planned to run for 4 sessions on Saturday mornings over March/April, as follows:
Attendance at all sessions is preferred (but not mandatory) and costs a total of $50 person for the entire course, plus pool entry at $6.30 each week. If you cannot make these dates the next boot camp will be run in Autumn 2018.
Please Note: Whilst we aim to welcome as many new members to the club as possible, we must advise that participation in the boot camp does not necessarily guarantee acceptance into the club.
Anyone of any gender or non-gender conforming is always welcome to join our boot camps!
We're also now specifically recruiting for a women's team & we'd like to hear from women of any experience level who are interested in learning & playing water polo in a fun & friendly LGBTIQ-inclusive club. For more information, visit our women's recruitment page or sign up below!
