National Club Championships – Ages 12 to 17
Players competing for a place in a Phantoms National Junior Club Championship team have usually made the decision to make water polo their number one sport. This is the highest level of national club competition and the best junior players in Australia compete in what is often the springboard for selection into National age group squads and ultimately Australian junior teams. There is a significant level of commitment required by both players and parents at this point of the development pathway and the rewards are there for those prepared to work hard and enjoy the exciting opportunities water polo can bring at this high performance level.
