Sundays at Waterworld, Hamilton. Held in the Dive Pool. 

NOTE: Training location can sometimes change. If so, we will update HEJA which is the communications app the club uses. Once registered with Waikato Water Polo, you will be given a code to join the HEJA app. Our other training locations (when advised) are Hamilton Boys High and St Peter's, Cambridge. 

Trainings are held in two groups to cater for beginners and our under 12's. In Term 1 only, we also allow our under 13's to train before their season starts.

Term 2 2024 training times are:

  • Session 1, Beginners: 9.00am - 10.30am 
  • Session 2, Under 12's: 10.30am - 12.00pm

If you are new to Water Polo and unsure of your ability, we welcome you to Session 1 to come and try out. Our instructors will then advise which session is best for you. 

Still unsure if you want to join the club? We allow 3x FREE sessions to come and try the sport out. Just turn up to our training day, Sunday morning and have a go!
