BEGINNER ADULT POLO / RECREATIONAL ADULT POLO
Both Beginner Adult Polo (BAP) and Recreational Adult Polo (RAP) are for those aged 18 (born 2002) and older. BAP & RAP participants are invited to play in the adult rec division at provincial tournaments. BAP & RAP is divided into two ten week sessions: fall (September to December) and winter (January to March). Participants who register for both sessions in September are eligible for a discount.
BAP combines swimming with water polo skills and game play. It allows participants to have fun while promoting fitness, friendship and teamwork. Participants do not need strong swimming skills or even previous knowledge of the game! Focus will be on gaining confidence in the water, acquiring water polo skills and learning the rules of the game.
RAP participants should have past knowledge of the sport or come from a strong swimming background. This is a great opportunity for former lifeguards, speed swimmers, synchro swimmers or triathletes to get back in the pool. If you’re still active, that’s fantastic! Come get in the pool with us once a week too! The Active-for-Life program combines swim sets, ball-handling drills and game tactics. The program encourages fitness, skill development and a little friendly competition.
COVID-19 restrictions limit the number of athletes allowed at a practice. These numbers are identified in WPS’s Return-to-Sport document and must adhere to provincial guidelines and facility regulations.
Practice times are available under PROGRAMS > TRAINING SCHEDULE in the menu above. RWPA registration fees for the 2020/21 season have yet to be finalized.
