About Southern Highlands Water Polo:
The Southern Highlands 2018-19 summer water polo competition is shaping to be another great season, as the club approaches its’ 40th year.
The ‘social round’ is aimed at refining teams and competition structures.
The junior competition is divided into age groupings, while the seniors have A and B grades.
There is a move to include a ‘FlippaBall’ grade for younger, inexperienced players, to have an introduction to the game of water polo early in 2019.
The Southern Highlands Water Polo Community acknowledges the support of Water Polo NSW for its club through a new internship program that has resulted in the employment of a competition manager.
Stephanie Evans, has been appointed through the internship with WPNSW and has already 'hit the water'. Lachie Feary will assist Stephanie on a voluntary basis, so waterpolo is really looking at a great year for everyone involved.
To make sure that the skills and fitness are kept up, Aquabliss at the Frensham Pool and trainer Jenny Balla, are offering a program which involves two clinics kicking off on Saturday, October 13 and weekly training starting on Wednesday, October 24.
This training will cater for all players, beginners and experienced.
The cost of these training sessions has been subsidised by the club and is set at $70 per player for the whole program, which includes free training for coaches and parents.
