Water polo is a game for all ages and the introduction to the game is through Flippaball. The program is designed for 8-12 year olds and is an ideal way to start the game. Skills and performance drills can be found by searching through this page.


If you are interested in becoming a water polo coach you can find out further information by contacting your local club. Some clubs allow coaches to commence without completing a coaching certificate but it is a worthwhile activity to undertake, particularly if you wish to progress to other levels of coaching within the network.


Becoming a water polo referee is a wonderful opportunity. Many Australian referees have officiated at the highest level of the sport at the Olympic Games and World Championships. The easiest way to get involved is to contact your local club or state association to find out when a Level 1 course is being held.


welcomeWater Polo is the oldest and longest standing team sport in the modern Olympics, having played at all modern Olympic Games since the 1900’s.  Today both males and females are playing water polo in over 150 countries around the world.

WA has been well represented at the playing and officiating level of the sport in national teams since Australia commenced competing in the Olympics and WA has been very successful on the national stage for the past 40 years having been a pioneer in the sports development.

Currently there are over 3,341 registered members in metropolitan and regional Western Australia and there are another estimated 1,000 participants in various school competitions.  Water Polo WA has a long-standing reputation for holding outstanding international tournaments and also hosts a national age group carnival every year.
