Water polo teams play a 30-minute game in the Years 7 and 8 interschool competition at Jellie Park Pool on Fridays, between 7.00pm–9.00pm. Places are limited due to the number of teams which can be entered.
By participating in water polo students acquire advanced aquatic skills such as treading water, sculling and swimming. These skills are picked up more readily at a young age and will increase their chances of survival in any aquatic environment. Students will also learn valuable team and leadership skills, hand-eye co-ordination and ball handling skills.
All competitors are required to wear school togs and a protective cap, which is provided by the competition organiser. Mouth guards are optional but are recommended.
