Under 18 Overview
Registration Costs: $550
Pre-season training starts (with Seniors) in Term 4 of the previous year.

U18 Auckland League
We participate in the Auckland Under 18 League, run by the Auckland Water Polo Association. Teams will be entered on the basis of player numbers. Under 18 games start in Term 2 and training starts in Term 1 with the Senior program – players should expect to train at least two to three times a week. Games can be 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)

National Championships
Nationals are run by New Zealand Water Polo and is separate from the Auckland League. Teams may be re-trialed 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).
