Academy & Development

The WPV Academy program enables Water Polo Victoria to support our athletes who are on the elite pathway, as well as provide extra training sessions and coaching support for those in State teams who are building towards higher representation. It is open to all athletes over the age of 13 and takes place at MSAC at 5:30am - 7:00am (Monday for Girls, Tuesday for Boys and Friday combined session).

The Development Program enables Water Polo Victoria to provide younger athletes a space to continue to build their foundational Water Polo skills and develop their understanding of the game from our coaching team. These sessions are for any interested athletes 11-years and older, and takes place at MSAC at 5:30am - 7:00am Wednesdays.

  • Interested in participating? Complete the Athlete EOI 

  • Want to help coach and develop our young athletes? Complete the Coach EOI

    • Coaching Opportunity

      • WPV are always on the lookout for new coaches who wish to work with our young athletes as they move along the Elite Pathway. We are seeking both regular coaches to develop and grow our athletes, but also specialist coaches who would like to come in on a part-time basis to teach our athletes about a particular area of expertise. This could be in areas such as Swimming, Goalkeeping, Strength & Conditioning, Stretching, Nutrition etc.

      • If you are interested, please complete the EOI so we have you on record for opportunities throughout the year.

Term 2 of the Water Polo Victoria Academy will kick off from the 15th of April, and we are seeking expressions of interest today! This program enables Water Polo Victoria to support our athletes who are on the elite pathway, as well as provide extra training sessions and coaching support for all athletes as they develop their game.

Term 2 Coaching

Chloe Lim will return as lead coach with the Academy Girls, whilst Elih Mutsch will take over from Ben Adams as lead coach of the Academy Boys. 

Elih will continue to work with the Development athletes on Wednesday morning, and we will also be welcoming Patrick Healy to the coaching team - Patrick will coach alongside Elih with the Development group. 

 

Our High-Performance Manager, Gerig Richardson (Spindles), will continue to oversee both Programs, supporting our coaches and athletes. 

We look forward to another great year of our Academy and Development programs!
