Three Waitakere Teams to Take on Olympic Hopefuls

Best of luck to our three Under 12s teams who are competing in their final tournament of the season this weekend!

The Olympic Hopefuls Tournament is New Zealand Water Polo’s annual Under 12 competition, which runs at both the AUT Millenium and the National Aquatic Centre. 2019 has already been a busy season for our Under 12s, who have been training since Term 1 and taken part in tournaments put on by Tauranga, Mountfort Park and North Harbour. Many of our Under 12 players also play for their school teams, in their local leagues as well as the Tim Sonderer Memorial Trophy, Winter Festival and AIMS Games.

Games for the Olympic Hopefuls begin this Friday, with the Gold team facing Rotorua at 11:00, Teal taking on Atlantis at 11:30 and Aqua against North Harbour at 12:00. The full draw and results can be found on New Zealand Water Polo’s website here.

To our players and coaches, go well this weekend – learn lots, have fun and do your club proud!
