Coach Development Program

Waikato Waterpolo prides itself on its quality of coaches. The club encourages its own Members to become coaches and provides oppertunities for potential coaches to put a toe in the water by coaching our club teams (Campbell Cup) before entering our Development Program.

Campbell Cup Coaching

Every year, Waikato Waterpolo runs its internal club competition across 3 divisions. Members who are thinking about becoming coaches can volunteer to help coach/co-coach these teams and get some experience in coaching.
