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, Alex Hawkins and Vikki Quarmby. 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 Seniors.

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.

WHY 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 comradery amongst Warriors players is evident at every practice session and forms the backbone of this club.

WP & SA Representatives

Warriors has celebrated some great success boasting over 80 WP representatives and 10 South African representatives in 2017. Warriors’ most notable team performance came from the ladies first team who won the 2017 ladies WP league as well as the 2017 National Currie Cup Tournament, making them the strongest ladies team in the country.

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.
