If you are a strong swimmer or have played waterpolo before and are interested in joining a team combined with Whangaparaoa School please register on the link below Term 1 competition is already underway, we are looking at forming a KWS team for term 2.

Year 9 & 10 team

Expressions of interest from any Y9 - Y10 student who would like to join the Y9/10 league. We need 10 boys and 10 girls to make  a team. If you are interested please  register below without payment

Year 7 & 8 team

 We are unable to offer practices exclusively for Kingsway water polo students at this time. Pool space is very expensive and almost impossible to book. In order to get all our students into the pool for training, we require you to join a club team.  This means that everyone has a club training scheduled sometime during the week and our Kingsway team is an add-on to for those players. Hibiscus Coast or North Harbour clubs are the closest water polo clubs.

Waterpolo is a physically demanding sport and requires a reasonable level of skill and mastery, together with swimming fitness that we are unable to provide the training for.  Because of the depth of the water and the physicality of the game, we need to ensure students have been taught the skills to keep themselves safe. Waterpolo clubs are well equipped to provide training and support, especially to students who are new to waterpolo

 Any year 7 or 8 player that is a member of a club and would like to join our KWS team to play at the Leisure Centre please fill out the form below. The cost is approx $60 - $70  per swimmer depending on numbers. Please register below without paying and we will collect fees once we have enough to form a team.

Primary Flippa Ball

Year 3/4 Junior waterpolo - played in the shallow end of the pool and using adapted waterpolo and flippaball rules this is a fun and engaging entry point that builds confidence in the water, teamwork and develops basic ball skills. We start this grade with two referees one in the pool supporting the players and one officiating on the side.

Teams are 6 players and the goalie in the pool. Substitutions at any time.

Games will be 2 x 10 minute halves with running clock.

Year 5/6 Junior waterpolo - also played in the shallow end of the pool and using adapted waterpolo and flippaball rules. This is a faster game than the year 3 and 4’s play but still hugely fun and engaging. This further develops the players water confidence and their swimming ability as well as their teamwork and ball skills. We start this grade with two referees officiating on the side.

Teams are 6 players in the pool plus the goalie. Substitutions at any time.

Games will be 2 x 10 minute halves with running clock.

Sets of caps are provided, but teams may use their own caps if they prefer. Wearing of rash shirts and goggles are not allowed (except by permission).

Waterpolo is a physically demanding, competitive, contact sport. It is played in the deep end of the Leisure Centre pool where students cannot touch the ground, nor are they allowed to hang onto the side of the pool during the game. To ensure our students safety, it is important that they are capable swimmers. We suggest that students should be able to swim at least 100 metres non-stop before registering for waterpolo at Kingsway. If your child is not a competent swimmer but is interested in waterpolo, there are other options within the Hibiscus Coast Club specifically for beginners and many local options for swimming training.
