Anyone is welcome to join one of our twice-yearly Water Polo Bootcamps, as long as they are already able to:
Bootcamp is an intense 3-4 week water polo training course that teaches the basic concepts of the sport. You'll be given opportunity to learn the rules of the game and test your skills in a supportive environment before joining the club.
We're also looking for strong swimmers and anyone with prior experience playing water polo – even if you haven't played in a few years.
Players with previous water polo experience at any level are welcome to join our Saturday training sessions to meet and train alongside the Stingers.
Our Bootcamp is scheduled for Spring 2017 and runs across 4 Saturday morning sessions.
Attendance at all sessions is preferred (but not mandatory) and costs a total of $50 person for the entire course, plus pool entry $6.20 each week.
Future Bootcamp attendees are welcome to join the team at our mid-week swim training sessions until the next course is held. Develop your core swimming skills and endurance, meet the team and hear their first-hand experience building confidence in water polo.
Please note: This is not a learn to swim course.
The Stingers have an annual membership fee covering both summer and winter seasons from 1 September to 31 August each year.
Membership fees cover costs incurred by the club including coaches, pool hire, new equipment and general running costs. Fees are subsided through active fundraising and sponsorship and present excellent value for money to members.
Membership fees for the 2016/2017 season have remained unchanged, offering the following options:
Players joining 'mid season' after our Autumn Bootcamp (April) will be charged a pro-rata fee of $175 and $250 for affiliate and full membership respectively.
* Fees above are correct as of September 2016 and are subject to change.
