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 at from 3.30-4.30pm every Wednesday afternoon from 10 February 2021 to 24 March 2021 in Term 1. In Term 2 our one hour sessions will be held from 28 April 2021 to 26 May 2021. 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.
