Calling all athletes! Express interest in Term 2 of the WPV Academy & Development Programs! Athletes involved in WPV state team programs, including the U13 Development Tournament in Hobart, are encouraged to join.


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 Boys Academy. Elih will continue to work with the Development athletes on Wednesday morning, and we will also be welcoming Patrick Healy to the coaching team.

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.



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


WPV Team
