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.
