Mini Water Polo Section
The mini water polo section is generally for players aged between 9 and 14, dependent upon ability and is open to both girls and boys. Anyone joining must have basic swimming skills, and will usually have reached level 7 on the ASA National Plan for Teaching Swimming (NPTS).
The teaching of water polo for mini players follows a termly plan, during which players will develop basic water polo skills. Players will develop skills and techniques to enable them to achieve levels 8 - 10 of the NPTS.
Mini players will also be invited to participate in the junior sessions when they are old and strong enough to cope (see Junior Water Polo). Particularly talented players will be sign posted to Watford Water Polo Club, where they will be able to train with other talented players.
Mini water polo takes place at North Herts Leisure Centre on a termly basis from 08:00 to 09:00. Players must join the ASA (as at least ASA Cat 1 non-competitive swimmers) and the Club.
Fees are payable monthly by standing order, and for 2017 are set at £10.
