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.
The program runs over term 4 and the following term 1 of the school year and fees are curently set at $400.00. Dolphins also offers holiday programs for those extra keen players.
Water Polo Western Australia (WPWA) runs an inter-club junior competition on Monday nights for affiliated clubs.
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 2017, therefore a player born in 2000 will not be eligible to play in the 16s competition because they would be 17 in 2017, 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.
Dolphins offers the Western Suburbs Water Polo option for players who don't wish or are unable to make the required commitment. Dolphins is committed to ensuring we offer players the opportunity to enjoy their water polo at the level they choose.
Water Polo Australia hosts National Club Championships for the 14s, 16s and 18s age groups. The 14s and the 18s are generally held at the end of the season whilst the 16s are held in the holidays between term 3 and term 4.
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.
