About the project
Melbourne Collegians Water Polo Club is the largest and most successful clubs in Victoria. We have over 20 water polo teams competing in competitions from Club run 'Madball' through to Water Polo Victoria State League competitions for Juniors and Seniors.
Our junior teams have been highly successful in Australian National Club Championships. Our U16 and U14 boys won Silver in 2014 and 2018 respectively while our U14 and U16 boys won Gold in 2014 and 2016. Our U16 Girls finished 8th out of 24 teams in the 2018 National Club Championships. We currently have a number of junior Australian representatives and brothers Lachlan and Blake Edwards are members of the current Australian Mens Team. Our club strives to develop players and provide the best training, coaching and competition opportunities so that players can reach their full potential. This is achieved through a lot of hard work by volunteers within the Club, however financial support is also crucial.
