- Congratulations to Wheatcroft on winning the RGS Inter-House Water Polo competition at the RGS Pool on Saturday, 4 February. Wheatcroft won the Junior Division while Jardine won the Senior Division. Pictured are team members from Wheatcroft.
Water polo is an exciting, fast paced game introduced at the Olympics in 1900 for men and opened to female teams in 2000. The aim is for six field players to dodge the opposition’s goalkeeper and score as many goals as possible. The game is played in quarters, with a 30 seconds shot clock.
Water polo players require great strength and aerobic capacity given the intensity of training and competition. Players need to be strong swimmers, be able to tread water for extended periods of time as well as excellent ball handling skills. This sport has experienced a lot of growth and success at Rockhampton Grammar School.
