Water Polo

Water Polo

Our thriving water polo section has Mini Polo, U13’s, U15’s, U17, Ladies and Men’s teams. They compete in a variety of leagues, competitions and tournaments, which means everyone, gets a chance to play competitively. There are also opportunities to attend county and regional training sessions.

 

Suitable for ages 6+, children develop water confidence, learn ball skills, team work and make new friends. As they progress, children will move up to our junior teams and onwards!

 

If you love swimming, being in the water and would like to participate in a challenging team sport, then have a go at water polo. Our training sessions will improve your health, stamina and agility. Oh, and it’s fun as well!

 

We welcome new and returning players of all ages and offer two free taster sessions. Please email waterpolo@naswpc.co.uk to book your free sessions.

Mini Polo (age 6-9 years)

This is an entry-level session for children age 6-9 years old, wanting to experience a simple version of water polo with limited rules and lots of fun. Water polo players swim, pass and shoot at a goal in much the same way as football, but instead of running and kicking the ball, water polo players swim and throw. Our Minis train in the shallow end of the pool allowing them to build their water confidence. Mini polo does not replace learn to swim lessons and we highly recommend children continue with these.

U13's

Our U13’s session gives children the fundamentals of the sport, techniques and fitness. Our U13’s play competitively in League Tournaments, which develops their teamwork and understanding of a competitive sport.

U15’s and U17s

Our U15’s and U17’s continue to develop their skills, learning the rules and tactics of play, as well continuing to improve fitness and stamina essential for the sport. Players take part in competitive matches in the Devon and the Bristol & West Leagues and, annually in friendly and competitive inter regional tournaments. There are also opportunities to participate in national competitions through attendance at regional training.

Ladies and Senior Men

We have experienced and committed teams of both Ladies and Men, some players having played for the club since they were only 6. A number of our players have progressed to a national level. Several also now volunteer as coaches and referees giving back to the sport and our club.

 

Both Teams continue their training to ensure they retain their fitness and skills. They compete in both the Devon and Bristol and West Leagues as well as national tournaments.
