Flippa ball is an event for KingsWay Primary students which is run by the Hibiscus Coast Waterpolo Club on Sunday's during school terms 2 & term 3. Dates for term 2 are  9 May - 6 June 2021 (no games Queen's Birthday) for 8 weeks 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 approx. seven weeks 
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.
