Sports Institute Water Polo

In 2019 our Premier Water Polo team was the most successful school boys’ Water Polo team in New Zealand winning the ‘triple crown’ - North Island Champs, Auckland Champs and the National Championship titles for the third year in a row. In 2020, disruptions due to Covid-19 meant these tournaments were unable to take place. At over levels, the Senior A and Junior teams have won their respective Auckland League championships, with the Junior team going on to take the North Island title. Our Year 7 and 8 boys also won both the Tim Sonderer Memorial Trophy and North Island Championships.
