Saskatoon Pirates Water Polo Club

Saskatoon Water Polo stands as the city's sole hub for comprehensive water polo experiences, offering a blend of developmental, recreational, and competitive programs. As an exhilarating team sport played in the water, water polo combines elements of soccer, basketball, and swimming. At Water Polo Saskatoon, we create a vibrant and supportive environment where athletes not only learn and succeed but also have a blast in the process! Our mission is to introduce individuals to the dynamic world of water polo, fostering growth, sportsmanship, and a love for aquatic sports.


Why Saskatoon Water Polo?

As a parent, you’re busy. We get that. One reason our club is a favorable option for families: siblings can be in the pool at the same time. Your 11 and 14 year old’s will have the same practice schedule. (Imagine having provincial tournaments on the same weekend too!) You can drop them off at the front door, and by the time you park, head in & your 8-year-old gets ready, it’s almost time for ‘I Love Water Polo’ to start. Parents can watch from the stands, maybe bring a book or visit with other parents, workout at the Hamm Fitness Centre, or go runs errands at nearby Blairmore Center.

Another reason: our current schedule allows athletes to do other activities. The practice schedule is set for the year. Water Polo Saskatchewan usually announces their league events and tournament schedule in early October. League events are usually once a month and provincials are held in December and late March/early April. There’s still time in the week to fit in music lessons, or even another sport!

The knowledge and skills your child has learned in other sports can transfer over to water polo. Children who have played soccer and basketball are already familiar with spacing and how a ball is passed around. What your child does in the pool with us, can transfer to other sports too. The same sudden burst of leg power that your child uses to try and lift themselves out of the water to block a shot, will help them run bases come spring time.

The 50m Olympic class pool at the Shaw Centre is the best high performance aquatic center in the province. Our athletes are proud to call it their home! Water Polo Saskatchewan frequently hosts provincials at the Shaw Centre. Sometimes there are three games going all at once!

“There’s no right way. There’s no wrong way, either. There are no rules and no one knows what they’re doing. That might not sound inspired or inspiring, but what you have to realize is that if there’s no right way and no rules and no one knows what they’re doing, YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WANT TO DO. Your dreams are your reality to make. Don’t follow the rules. Don’t be a product of your environment. Make your environment a product of you." -Robin Randall
