Annual Water Polo NSW Events

Our "Festival" events are held with "Development" of not only Players, but also our Coaches, Referees & Table Officials in mind. The aim is for those who wish for the opportunity to coach, to have a go, in a more relaxed enviroment. For those who wish to referee, this is the perfect opportunity to give it a try, in a non threatening enviroment. Our aim is to provide referee mentoring and assessments for Community accreditation. We encourage our Mums & Dads to learn the ropes of being a Table Official.

The aim for Festivals is for teams to play 2 or 3 games per day, against different teams in their own age group and gender.  The results are recorded, however there are no team winners.... Water Polo is the "winner".

It is important to run these "Festivals" to assist Clubs and Water Polo NSW with overall development of Water Polo.

Our "Championship" event is open to all NSW Clubs who wish to play and claim the title of "State Champions" each year for each age group, for each gender.  The Championship events have rules that must be adhered to, including the player draft process procedure.  We award a 'Winners" Perpetual Trophy, Gold, Silver & Bronze Medals and Tournament Player Awards such as Most Valuable Player, Most Valuable Goal Keeper, and a Tournament 7.
