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 recent years our Senior A2 and Junior teams have won their respective Auckland League championships. In 2018 our Year 7 and 8 boys won both the Tim Sonderer and Winterfest tournaments.
