Water Polo Training

We train every week during term time with sessions at the York Sports Village on Heslington East and at Archbishop Holgate's School. The Men's and Women's teams have 2 sessions a week and sometimes share sessions for more hours when preparing for competitions. We also make use of swimming sessions to complete Polo specific swim sets.

Our training sessions are both hard and rewarding. They are designed to improve your fitness at the same time as teaching you new skills and tactics. The sessions are led by both our Coach and Captains who are more than able to run sessions that are valuable for both beginners and experienced players at the same time.
