Welcome to all of our new players and families! If you do need any information or have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us via the email address below or speak to us at training.

We have had some changes to the pool times which means that training can go ahead as usual 4-5.30pm and 5.30-7pm on Saturday 15th and Saturday 20th September. September is already a busy month of training and matches if you haven’t done so already please link the calendar below to your phone so that you are always up to date with these changes. Thank you.

Whist we had no matches during August some of our players were busy Representing the club and Wales taking part in the GB training camp held at Millfield School. Well done to Luke Turner, Ollie Chilcott, Joseph Gandee and Ben Turner for attending the camp. Special mention to Luke and Ollie whose team was undefeated in the final day of matches!

Congratulations to Dan Griffiths for successfully completing and gaining his Level 2 coaching award. Dan and Mike will continue to lead the coaching and training for our Junior players. Senior coaching and training will be lead by Rohan.

RTC is on as usual at Newport and Carmarthen; details have been emailed to those who attend.

All Junior players who do not attend RTC have been invited to attend the Wales Academy Training held monthly on a Sunday 11-12 at the International pool Cardiff Bay. There is a £6 charge payable to Waterpolo coaches at the pool. We would love our Junior Newport players to attend as this is a great place to further develop your skills, mix with other Welsh players and get to know the Welsh coaching team.
