East Region GRAND PRIX

Author: JLA, 02/09/17

hosted at NSB we will enter 2 teams in this event

FOR TEAMS BORN 2004 & 2006

Hi all water polo club contacts in the East Region.(and Northampton) 

We have put together a new East Region Water Polo Grand Prix competition and we are hoping that as many of you as possible will enter a team in both age groups. 

As this is the Second year that it will run, we are looking to run it as more of a development competition to ensure that all kids training in the Region have access to competitive water polo, and to bring on young coaches and officials. 

The age groups will be 2004 born and younger and 2006 born and younger. All teams entered will need to name a qualified Team Manager and an unqualified coach, referee and table official. Qualified coaches can act as assistant coaches on the bench.

We will put on courses within the year so that all the unqualified coaches and officials can become qualified. This will increase the base of helpers in the Region and help grow the sport. 

We are hoping to get 8 teams entered in to each age group. Both age groups will play a round robin in 2 leagues at a Grand Prix day at Northampton School for Boys with a Finals at HABS or Chelmsford. 

The cost is £150 per team entered and will be payable to the East Region. All teams can be mixed boys and girls and need to be Swim England registered with their clubs.


The 2006 born tournament will be played on Saturday 20th October from 2pm to 6pm.

 The 2004 born tournament will be played on Saturday 10th November from 2pm to 6pm.

The Finals day will be at Haberdashers on 15th December for 2004's and 24th November for 2006's at Chelmsford ICE.
