How do I know which program my student athlete should be in?
Splashball is for younger players who are new to the sport of water polo. If your child is age 6 – 10, splashball is the program for you.
Age group is the next level of progression. If your child is age 10-13, age group is for you. Experienced players younger than age 10 may be permitted to join the age group program with the coach’s approval. Within the age group program, players will be sorted into divisions (10U, 12U, 14U) by the coach.
Primary & Secondary School program is for all athletes, regardless of experience level, who are entering ages 5 upward.

What equipment is needed? Do I need a particular suit?
All you really need is a suit, towel, and water bottle.
WSL Swim Shop has team suits available for purchase through our online store at the beginning of each season. Please ask your coach about availability. Team suits are not required but preferred.
Goggles are permitted for warm-up laps, but are not worn during the rest of practice. Most players do not bring their goggles to water polo.
Athletes with medium to long hair will want to wear a swim cap. Swim caps can be worn under game caps. Game caps by themselves are not snug enough to hold hair back.
Athletes with braces should check with their orthodontist for recommendations on protective mouthwear. Mouthguards are permitted, but are not required.
Where do we practice?
WSL practices are held at Premier Hotel Swim Center: Mokola Hill, Oyo Road Ibadan.
