BORN 2002 to 2007
Our Elite training group is ARMADA's high performance program. It is for highly competitive athletes dedicated to excellence in the sport. Commitment to practices, competitions and the team are essential at this level.
Elite athletes play with TeamSask in the National Championship League (NCL). Water Polo Canada (WPC) identified new NCL age categories for the 2020/21 season. They are: 15U, 17U, 19U and Senior. Select athletes may be invited to play up an age division. Fees associated with practicing with and playing for TeamSask are in addition to the ARMADA registration fee.
In WPS provincial events, they play in their appropriate age division, plus up one age division (if eligible & available at the event). For example, an athlete born in 2006 would play in all 15U and open events.
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. Coaches may have to create practice rosters and athletes may be part of a rotation.
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.
