ABOUT THE

WESTERN WARRIORS

The Western Warriors Water Polo Club is run year-round at various locations around the Western Cape by directors Dean Rimmer and Alex Hawkins. They are ably assisted by some of WP's finest coaches, and through various structures, cater to all levels of water polo, from Splash to Senior National Players.

The Warriors Polo Academy aims to equip each player with the personal skills and strengths to dominate their game - each session focuses on individual skill and is tailored to the players' ability. With this approach, we aim to create players that can fit easily into any team set-up with a sound base of fundamentals and game-understanding.

The Club aims to provide real water polo value, expert coaching and a consistently fun, engaging and challenging environment for each player to develop his or her water polo.

HOW AND WHERE TO JOIN WARRIORS

OUR OFFERING

Largest Water Polo Club in SA

Western Warriors has grown exponentially since its inception and now boasts more than 200 members, making it the biggest water polo club in South Africa, and currently has 5 teams entered into the local senior club league.

Healthy Environment

Above all else, Warriors prides itself on providing a healthy environment for its players to enjoy. The sense of family and camaraderie amongst Warriors players is evident at every practice session and forms the backbone of this club. While we ensure our players get high level coaching and individual attention, players' experience of their time in and out the pool will always be our primary aim. We love the game, and we want our players, parents and supporters to love it too!

WP & SA Representatives

Warriors has celebrated some great success on the competitive side of things, boasting over 120 WP representatives and 14 South African representatives between 2017-2019. Warriors’ most notable team performance came from the Ladies First Team, who have won the Ladies WP league as well as the National Currie Cup Tournament consecutively from 2017 to 2019, making them the strongest and most consistent ladies team in the country for three years in a row!

Beginner - Elite Sessions

As water polo experiences significant growth as a sport, Warriors Water Polo Club is committed to continually providing up to date training sessions that meet the needs of all its members. Because of this, 2 new sections were introduced in 2016/2017, namely the Wee Warriors Splash Polo training for beginners (6 years – 10 years) and our Elite training programme where players are selected to attend intensive training sessions, aimed at preparing players for the highest level in their respective age groups. We now include the following divisions across boys and girls polo: Splash: U6-U8 Junior: U9-U11 Senior: U12-U15 Elite: U15-U18 Open: U18+
