The 12s, 14s,16s,17s girls, 18s info below is just for Winter. Summer comps for all of these teams will commence at the beginning of Term 4.
If any players who played in Summer are unable to play this term ( winter ) please advise the following.
12s , 14s, 16s and 18s – Jon Harmer –
17s Girls / A Grade Women – Steve Hill –
A Grade Men – Michael Den Dekker -
12s & 14s Mixed
Vikings WPC are running our own in house 12 & Under and 14 & Under comps this coming term at Prince Alfred College. ( not St Peters. ) It is mixed and the 12 & Unders ( Born 05 & later ) will have 3 teams ( mixed ) playing between 4 - 5pm – Meet at 3.45 sharp please. 14 & Unders ( Born 03/04 ) will have 3 teams (mixed) playing between 5-6 pm – Meet at 4.45 . The competition starts on Sunday August 13 and runs for 7 weeks. No cost ! It will be very good for our junior players and we ask ALL players intending to play in Summer / Term 4 to make every attempt to play in this pre summer warm up comp.
16s & 18s Boys
We have entered x1 boys 16 & Under team and x1 18 & Under team in the WPSA Winter competition. The competition starts on Wed. July 26 at Marion.
However at this stage Vikings 16s & 18s will have a bye in round 1 – this Wednesday and commence the following Wednesday August 2.
Water Polo SA are also trying to start a competition for 14s girls ( not mixed ). As there are not enough girls yet for each club to have teams they are asking all girls born 03 and later to turn up at Marion at 6.15 starting Wed August 2nd to make up teams. This is a very good opportunity for all VWPC girls aged 03/04.
Vikings are not entering a 17s girls team in Winter. The club felt the 4-5 games to be played this term were not worth the cost especially with most of the girls playing A Grade when it starts later in the term. The Vikings 17 & U girls team will be up and running again in Term 4 / summer.
A Grade Women
Yes Vikings are entering an A grade team for summer with new experienced playing coach , Belinda Symons at the helm , with Shaun’s initial support and Steve Hill as team manager . Games are to be held on Tuesday nights starting August 15 at 8.40pm Vs Tritons at Marion and club training likely on Fridays at AAC at 6.45pm tbc, subject to possible training clashes.
