We're Recruiting!

We're seeking new female members to join the club for the 2018-19 summer season, and we'd love for you to be a part of it!
 

whAT MAKES the sydney stingers different?

2M1A4124-2.jpg

We're a fun, friendly LGBTIQ-inclusive club that welcomes both new and experienced players. We aim to create a supportive and enjoyable environment while we train, play & challenge ourselves.

 

do I need to be gay, lesbian or lgbtiq to join?

No, not at all - everyone is welcome. But please be aware that our club is an LGBTIQ-friendly environment.

 

What grades do you play?

We currently have two teams in the Water Polo NSW Metropolitan Winter Competition Ladies' Open Division, with one team in each of the following grades:

  • L3 grade – for intermediate & advanced players with prior experience
  • L5 grade – for players with some prior experience, or beginners with good water skills

Our team make-up for Summer '18-19 is yet to be finalised, but we expect that it will include at least one L5 team (for beginner and intermediate players), and one or more L4 or L3 teams (for more experienced players).

 

Do I need prior experience?

No, but you should be confident in the water. You should be able to swim at least a few laps, and be able to stay afloat (tread water) unassisted.

 

When and where do you play / train?

We train on Saturday mornings at Ryde Aquatic Leisure Centre (exact times TBA). Training runs for 90 mins each session.

Games in the Summer '18-19 season will be held on Wednesday evenings from mid-October through to late March. Venues are not yet finalised, but are likely to include Ryde Aquatic Leisure Centre, Macquarie University, Auburn Aquatic Centre and the University of Sydney.

 

fees and charges?

You'll need to pay normal pool entry fees for games and training sessions. Members receive discounted pool entry at our home pool, Ryde Aquatic Leisure Centre. All other game and training expenses are covered by your membership fee - see below.

MEMBERSHIP FEES


HOW MUCH?

MEMBERSHIP FEES


HOW MUCH?

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 represent excellent value for money to members – we're cheaper than many of the other Sydney-based water polo clubs!

Membership fees for the 2017/2018 season have remained unchanged, offering the following options:

  • Affiliate membership: $350 / year - Affiliates train on Saturdays and are welcome to participate in all club activities (incl. mid-week swim training).
  • Full membership: $250 / year - Full Members train on Saturdays and are registered to play in the Water Polo NSW Metropolitan competition on Tuesday nights. Membership includes insurance cover through Water Polo Australia.

Fees quoted on this page are correct as of April 2018, and are subject to change.
