Cornwall Park School will be entering Year 3-6 Flippa Ball and Year 6 Mini Polo teams to represent our school in the Epsom league.
Flippa Ball is a modified version of Water Polo. Two teams, each of which must have a minimum of seven players, play Flippa Ball. Each team must have 6 field players and 1 goalie in the pool at one time. The pool is shallow (approximately 1.3 metre) allowing players to stand on the bottom of the pool. Players are permitted to walk along the bottom if they do not have the ball. If in possession of the ball the player must swim or pass. Players must pass with only one hand. The game consists of two halves of 8 minutes duration with a 2 minute half time.
Mini Polo is a smaller, more basic game than Water Polo itself and has been introduced to teach young players the basics of the full game of Waterpolo. Mini Polo is only available to those students who have played Flippa Ball for at least 1 term, are confident swimmers and can tread water confidently.
