Dolphins Water Polo Club
Junior Program
The Dolphins Water Polo Club's junior program is based on competing in the competitions described below. Much of the activities of the program revolves around preparing the young players for each game and teaching them both individual and team based skills whilst ensuring they are also fit enough to play the game to the point that it is both challenging and fun.
Water Polo Western Australia (WPWA) runs an inter-club junior competition on Sundays for B Division teams and Monday nights for A Division teams.
The competition is age group based and caters for 14s, 16s and 18s. Ages are determined by how old the player will be in the year the competition ends. For example:- this current summer's season will end in March 2020, therefore a player born in 2003 will not be eligible to play in the 16s competition because they would be 17 in 2020, even though they may be 16 at the start of the season.
As each age group has a two year span WPWA try to have two divisions in each group and clubs generally put the younger players in the B division.
Players competing in this competition will be required to attend training sessions. The competition is competitive with clubs taking great pride in their teams' achievements.
Water Polo Australia hosts the Australian Youth Water Polo Championships in January each year. The championships is club based for the 12s, 14s, 16s and 18s age groups.
These championships are seen as an important step in the development of players that wish to pursue an elite pathway, they are also great fun and allow athletes to gain a broader picture of the sport. Dolphins is very supportive of its teams and the players who are prepared to do the hard work and compete at this national level.
