In the Bay of Plenty there are a growing amount of schools that are participating in Water Polo, please contact your school if you wish to play in the leagues listed below.
Mini Water Polo is designed as an introduction to water polo, played in a shallow pool where children can touch the bottom. Players also learn the fundamentals of water polo: passing, defending, shoting, and the rules of the game. There are different venues where Mini Water Polo is played accross Tauranga: Memorial, Greerton, Papamoa and Otumotai. It's also a great opportunity for our older Rep players to start Refereeing.
