During each term we are running Flippaball sessions in the Preparatory School pool for girls and boys aged 9-12 years old.

Flippaball is a social introduction to Water polo for boys and girls in Years 4-6 who have completed Stage 6 or higher of the Department of Education Swimming and Water Safety Continuum. The program encourages children who enjoy the water, are reasonable strong swimmers, or are looking to be involved in a water sport to learn about the fundamentals of Water polo through Flippaball.

The one hour sessions will be held from 16 February 2022 to 23 March 2022. Our sessions include playing as part of a team and playing an actual game of Flippaball. Within the sessions, our students learn and develop skills in Water polo that will support them when playing in a game.

The program is delivered by our experienced and qualified coaches and delivered in our impressive Preparatory School pool. Our coaches take into account the individuals skill set and deliver a lesson that is relevant to all students who attend, whilst providing a safe and friendly environment for everyone.
