The AIC Water Polo tournament will be played this Sunday, October 24th at Somerville House.
There are three teams Year 7, Years 8/9 and Years 10/11.
The Year 7 and Years 8/9 teams will begin competition at 8am and finish by 11am. Players are asked to meet the coaches and Mrs Jacobs at 7:30am on the pool deck.
The Open team will begin playing from 12 noon until 3pm at the latest. Open players are asked to meet by 11:30. Any player in the Years 8/9 team who wish to play in the Open matches, must first play in their own division. As you will see in the draw, it is not possible for the Year 7 players to also play in the Year 8/9 division team.
Only one parent per student is permitted to attend the tournament due to COVID restrictions. There is limited parking underneath the pool, but some street parking is possible. Please be considerate of the residents in the streets and alert to parking signage. There will be a canteen available with limited provisions for snacks and drinks only.
Each team will need to provide two people for table duty in the morning session as per the draws given below. If you can assist, please let Mrs Jacobs know. It will be very much appreciated by the teams.
The aim of the event is to enjoy water polo within the spirit of AIC.
Players must wear the Villanova swim togs and the Villanova PE uniform to and from all games and be present at least 30min before the first game.

The fast and exhilarating sport of water polo is quickly becoming more popular in schools around Queensland and Australia. It is currently played in Term 4 as an unofficial AIC sport. As from 2019, AIC Water Polo will be conducted as a one day tournament held in Term 4.
The water polo uniform includes the Villanova swimmers, which can be purchased from the Uniform Shop, and a polo cap, which is provided by the College. Students are expected to wear the College’s complete sports uniform or academic uniform to all games.
During the season, additional information such as training times, team lists, coaching staff, schedules and results are available on the College website.
