Water polo teams play a 30-minute game after school once a week in the Years 7 and 8 interschool competition.
Water polo can be a rough sport as children play in water over their head. To participate, students need to be very competent swimmers, i.e. able to swim eight lengths of a 25-metre pool without stopping.
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.
