Flippa ball is a new event for KingsWay Primary students which is run by the Hibiscus Coast Waterpolo Club on Sunday's during school terms 2 & 3 at The Leisure Centre, Brightside Road, Stanmore Bay.

The aims of the Sunday League are to provide a fun and exciting opportunity for children to develop their water and ball skills by playing flippa ball in a fun, mildly competitive format. 

Club members provide the refereeing services, and encourage parents to help where they can.

The Competitions are run on a round robin plus knockout format based on a draw conducted at the beginning of the tournament. The format of the leagues depends on the number of teams entered in each division.

Depending on numbers a series of finals are held at the end of the round-robin section in order to determine the final placings.

The league runs for seven weeks from Sunday 20 May to Sunday 8 July. (excludes Queens birthday weekend)
Our year 3/4 team are called Kahawai 
Our year 5/6 team are called Kingfish 

Games start promptly at the registered start time and consist of two 10 minute half (20 minutes) and a 2 minute half time break. That gives each team 3 minutes of warm up prior to the start of the game. So Quick in and Quick out for your games. 

 Details are:

  • Played Sunday evenings between 4pm – 7pm at the Leisure Centre
  • 7 Children per team plus 2 subs. So 9 per team in total.
  • It is played in the shallow end of the LC pool so students that are not strong swimmers yet, can touch the bottom.
  • Games are 20 minutes long. (10 minutes each way)
  • There are two levels in Flippa Ball – Year 5/6’s and Year 3/4’s.
  • Mixed boys and girls teams.

Cost per student for a team of 9 players is $50each.
