Regional Water Polo Development

14 May 2017

There are currently two regional training centres, the West Satellite in Hertfordshire and the East Satellite in Suffolk.  They aim to develop players of various ages and prepare Inter Regional teams for annual competitions.

The region also has a Regional Academy which feeds the best players in the region though to the National Academy.

The regional Water Polo Grand Prix is a new event for 2017 and offers clubs the opportunity to enter teams in two age groups.  The aim of the Grand Prix is to provide players with experience of tournament play and to develop young coaches and officials.  This will benefit them all when travelling away to Inter Regional competitions and beyond.

The region also runs coaching courses to enable clubs to train more people at 'Assistant Coach' and 'Coach' level.
