NEW TO WATER POLO?

Anyone is welcome to join one of our twice-yearly Water Polo Bootcamps, as long as they are already able to:

  • Swim confidently
  • Tread water comfortably

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.

PRIOR EXPERIENCE? 

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 NEXT BOOTCAMP

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.  

SWIM SQUAD

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.
