Regional Training Centres (RTC)

If you are a club level junior water polo player and would like to develop your skill further why not come for a trial at the Regional Training Centre (RTC)?

The Regional Training Centre (RTC) follows the “Player Pathway”, a national programme for long term athlete development in Water Polo.  The focus of the RTC is on the skills and techniques the players will require to play Water Polo at higher standard.  As part of a national programme the RTC helps to develop players from club level Water Polo to the standard required for the National Squad. 

In the 2010/11 season the East Midlands had 3 boys and 1 girl accepted in the England Talent Squad, who then have the chance to enter the England Junior Team.

We are now looking for players for the 2011/12 Season.   The sessions are likely to be at Djanogly Pool, Nottingham on Fridays from 8.30 to 10.00 (dates to follow).  The RTC is for boys and girls born 1996, 97, 98 and 99.  Players born 2000 meeting the standard required will be considered if there are vacancies.  

Players currently undertaking 1 hour water polo and 1 hour a swimming per week are likely to be at a suitable standard for an RTC trial.

A trial will be held during summer.   Please contact Colin Robbins (c.j.robbins@ntlworld.com) for details.
