All FlippaSchools content aims to teach essential life skills such as water safety, swimming and treading water, hand-eye coordination, cooperation, communication and confidence, through familiar group games and activity for juniors.


PRIMARY SCHOOL PROGRAM

There are three FlippaSchools packages available through Sporting Schools:

  1. Try Polo – Five x 60 minute sessions that are 100% land based activities relating to water polo, delivered on school grounds (coach or teacher delivery options).
  2. Dip into Polo – Five x 60 minute session comprised of three land based sessions at school followed by a two sessions at the pool. Note: pool sessions often delivered as a double 120 minute session - so only one trip to the pool if needed.
