Message from the Chairperson

Welcome to Atlantis City Water Polo 2021 Season!  I am the Chairperson of the Club and was one of the founding members when Atlantis was formed in 2016. 

At Atlantis we want to give everyone the opportunity to play and have fun enjoying the beautiful game, Water Polo.  In December 2020 we became a Diocesan School Affiliated Club so the Dio pool has become our home pool and gives our members the ability to play and train in a great pool and going forward we hope that training times will be more consistent from term to term which will make it easier to plan. 

We have a dedicated, passionate and hardworking committee, coaching staff, volunteers and members who all want the best for players, parents, guardians, care givers and the Club.  In 2021 we are expanding our Boy’s programme and will have the first Atlantis Boys’ team playing in the U16 age grade. The Atlantis Girls’ programme continues to offer playing and training opportunities in all age grades from U12 through to senior women. The Club is also offering specialist coaching clinics for various positions so keep an eye on the website for more info re all of this.

2020 was the year of Covid in many ways and that provided Atlantis with an opportunity to reassess what is important for players and parents and we are sure that you will find the changes the club is making in 2021 will make playing Water Polo with Atlantis even better and more rewarding that it was prior to Covid! The Atlantis committee is always keen to hear from you so if you would like to get in touch please email chair@acwpa.co.nz and we look forward to hearing from you.
