Water Polo

Water polo takes place at Moana Pool every Thursday in Terms 1 and 4. Students need to pay pool entry at the pool and water polo fees of $30 to school.

Games are 20 minutes long. For more information on Water polo, please contact Lisa Dixon - ldixon@balmacewen.school.nz

Teams may consist of up to a total of 13 players.
A & B grades will consist of 4 minute quarters and the novice grade will consist of 6-minute halves, all grades are running clock.
Points will be awarded as 2=win, 1=draw, 0=loss.


There are some changes and restrictions in place in order for Waterpolo to go ahead. Please note the following:


We must keep in mind that we are still under RED and there are some guidelines set by Moana Pool and the DCC that we must abide by: 

Please note the following regulations:

  • It is preferable that the players arrive and leave in togs (they can use the change rooms if required)

  • Everyone will have to scan in with the NZ Covid Tracer app or manually signing in

  • Please show your vaccine passport
  • Please ask those that are unwell to stay home

  • You can use the main entrance and pay at reception


All participants will have to wear face coverings when entering the facility. Players can remove these prior to entering the water, coaches and referees can remove theirs when on poolside.


It will be great to get our students back in the water! 

If you have any queries, please contact me at school.  

Kind Regards

Lisa Dixon
