STATE TEAM PROGRAM – International Tour
This year the State Team Program (STP) will be travelling internationally to the prestigious Pan Pacific Youth Festival (Pan Pacs) in Auckland, New Zealand. The Pan Pacs is the largest Water Polo tournament in the Southern Hemisphere and will host over 150 teams from July 7th to July 17th. WPNSW are excited to be competing in such a fantastic and global tournament and sees the intrinsic benefits for undertaking this tournament through the STP.
Speaking to Chris Dyson our Sport Development Manager – “The State Team Program is an essential component in developing our state identified pathway for athletes, coaches and officials, and its success has a long term impact on our sport. The STP is an all encompassing program with multiple phases being: Initial Identification >> Development Camp >> Skills and Team Building >> Competition Play. The Pan Pacs is a fantastic platform to facilitate the competition stage of our program this year.”
WPNSW will be entering teams into the following age groups at the Pan Pacs:
- U20s – Saturday 7th – Tuesday 10th July
- U16s – Saturday 7th – Wednesday 11th July
- U14s -Friday 13th July – Monday 16th July

WPNSW will be announcing critical information regarding the STP as soon as possible. Unfortunately we have recently required to change our plans for the competition stage of the STP, this has led to a delayed release of the program. Not to worry the program will be announced very soon.
WPNSW is excited for the STP and Pan Pacs competition in July!
