OVERVIEW:
Water polo is an exciting, fast paced game introduced at the Olympics in 1900 for men and opened to female teams in 2000. The aim is for six field players to dodge the opposition’s goalkeeper and score as many goals as possible. The game is played in quarters, with a 30 seconds shot clock.

Water polo players require great strength and aerobic capacity given the intensity of training and competition. Players need to be strong swimmers, be able to tread water for extended periods of time as well as excellent ball handling skills. This sport has experienced a lot of growth and success at Rockhampton Grammar School.

COMPETITION:
All of our teams take part in the weekly interschool competition which involves the following schools from across the greater Rockhampton area, namely St. Ursula’s College; The Cathedral College; Rockhampton Girls Grammar School; Emmaus College; St Brendan’s College and Rockhampton State High School.

Competition resumes in Term 4 2017.

* Please note that each team is to supply players/parents to help with running the table, the game after they have played.
* Dress: All players are to wear their RGS sports uniform to and from the pool, including footwear
