The Water Polo Section aims to encourage the sport across the spectrum of swimmers and has 4 categories of membership:
- Ladies (18yrs+)
- Mens (18yrs+)
- Mini Polo (boys and girls, 9-12 years)
- Junior Polo (boys and girls with some experience and knowledge up to the age of 18)
To enable full participation and enjoyment of the sport, members of this section need to be reasonably proficient, confident swimmers in front crawl and backstroke, and be able to tread water. Water Polo members regularly take part in various leagues and our senior members can often be seen hosting some very exciting matches at Riverside Ice and Leisure on a Tuesday evening. (See Fixtures for info)
Training times are as follows:
Water Polo (Mini Polo)Held at Chelmsford County High School
Tuesdays 6.45 - 7.45 pm
Water Polo (Juniors and Seniors)Held at Riverside Ice & Leisure, Chelmsford
Tuesday 8.00 - 10.00 pm *
* On Tuesdays, when there is a league match taking place, the training session will finish in time for the match to commence at 9.20 pm. However, on Tuesdays when there isn't a league match, normal training will continue until 9.30 pm and then seniors (and experienced juniors) will do further skills development and tactical drills until 10.00 pm.
New players are offered two free trial sessions. Contact the club if you would like to arrange this or require more information. Please download the membership / medical details form, complete both sides and bring it with you on your first night.
