Illawarra Water Polo is based at UniActive Aquatic Centre (UOW pool) and aims to give competent swimmers aged 7+ the opportunity to play the sport of water polo. We cater from beginners to experts and focus on the development of all our players through training and games.

We offer a junior program (runs from October-April) and a senior program (runs all year round). One of the age groups in our junior program is flippa ball (7-12 year olds). Flippa ball is played in the shallow end and has modified rules to enable our younger players to play the game more effectively.

Another age group in our junior program is 13-16 year olds. Here they will play in the deep end and practice more complex movement skills and decision making aspects.

Our final age group is the senior program. This is separated into 3 seasons (autumn - aligning with UOW semester 1, spring - aligning with UOW semester 2, and summer). This is a mixed gender, social comp that has 5 teams. It is open to everyone from beginners-experts.
