Waitakere does not have an U18 Womens team for the 2018 season due to player numbers, but we are expecting to enter a team in 2019.
Under 18 Overview
Registration Costs: $450.00 per player
Pre-Season training starts (with Seniors) in Term 4 of the previous year
U18 Auckland League
We participate in the Auckland League, run by Auckland Water Polo Association. The Club enters teams based on the number of players. Under 18 Games start in Term 3 and training starts in Term 1 - players should expect to train at least two to three times a week. Games can be on a Friday night or Sunday at any of the 7 Water Polo Pools in Auckland:
West Wave (our home ground)
Sacred Heart Aquatic Centre (Home of Marist)
MISH (Home of North Harbour)
National Aquatic Centre (Neutral Ground)
Manurewa Aquatic Centre (Home of Mountfort Park)
Diocesan Aquatic Centre (Neutral Ground)
St Cuthberts Aquatic Centre (Neutral ground)
Nationals are run by New Zealand Water Polo and is separate from the Auckland league. Teams are trialled again for Nationals based on players interested in attending. The number of teams going to Nationals is dependant on the number of players able and willing to go. U18 Nationals run in the Term 3 school holidays and are held in Auckland. There is an additional entry fee for associated costs with this (entry fee, travel and accommodation etc).
