FlippaBall is a program designed to make learning water polo fun and safe for all junior beginners.


FlippaBall is a fun, simple game that can be played by all children who have learnt to swim, regardless of their height or gender. Being a modified version of water polo, FlippaBall is played in the shallow end of the pool so that the children may use the bottom of the pool to rest and for added security and safety. Perfect for children aged 7-12! Learn more about Flippa Ball

My favourite thing[s] about Flippaball are the fun games and the awesome coach.
My son's swimming has improved so much! It gave my children the opportunity to be part of a team.
