Development

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.

Coaching

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.

Referees

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.
