Water Polo in Saskatchewan is available to ALL ages and ALL skill levels. Saskatchewan has a number of water polo clubs throughout the province that provides recreational and competitive level of training to all athletes. If you or your child are interested in water polo, please contact one of our clubs closest to you on our Find a Club page.
Water Polo Saskatchewan offers additional training and competition opportunities to those athletes interested in competing at a national level with Team Sask. Our Development Centre, High Performance Centre, and High School Excellence program all provide competitive training for provincial team athletes. For more information on these centres, please visit our Development Centre, High Performance Centre, or High School Excellence program pages.
