Training

Training will recommence in 2014 at the South Yarra Sports Centre on Monday the 3rd of March from 7:30pm

Melbourne University Water Polo Club trains every Monday night at the South Yarra Sports Centre, 679 Chapel Street, South Yarra. This centre has an eight lane, 25 metre, swimming pool that has a constant depth of 2.2 metres, making it ideal for water polo training. In addition to the Monday evening skills training sessions, MUPolo also holds swimming sessions at the Beaurepaire Centre (Melbourne University Parkville Campus) on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.

In 2014 MUPolo will be running a split training session on Monday evenings for its members:

  • The MUPolo Women’s teams will train from 7:30pm to 8:45pm; and
  • The MUPolo Men’s teams will train from 8:30pm to 10:00pm.

Training usually consists of 20 minutes of swimming, with varying levels of difficulty, followed by ball drills and usually some games/scrimmage to finish the training session off. All new members are encouraged to turn up to a training session, regardless of ability. Training sessions cater for differing standards, from beginners up to State League 1 and Australian University Games representatives.

An additional skills training session will be held on Sunday evenings at the South Yarra Sports Centre which will commence on Sunday 30th March 2014 and run throughout the 2014 WPV Winter Competition and 2014 WPV State Championships. This training session will cater for our elite players (Men’s and Women’s State League 2) and be run between 7:30pm through to 9:30pm.
