Flippaball 


During Term 1 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 have an infinity to water, or are reasonable strong swimmers that are looking to be involved in a water sport, where they can learn about the fundamentals of water polo through Flippaball.


The one hour sessions will be held at from 8.30-9.30am every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning from 7 December 2020 to 22 January 2021. This term these session will be broken down into two 30 minutes intervals with the first 30 minutes based on basic fundamentals in skills and development and the remaining half of the session a game of Flippaball.

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.
