Junior Club and coach expectations - it is important when players commit to a team that they are also committing to attending the required training sessions.

In addition to normal training the club holds scrimmage sessions against other clubs where player attendance will be required to ensure whole of team development.  These are usually held on a training night and hosted by other clubs around Sydney. These are great opportunities for players to develop their water polo skills in a semi-competitive environment.

Thank you in advance for your support as the club utilises training time to develop players skills and game knowledge and development. 

Regards, Jamie Nigel - Junior Coordinator
