Welcome to Northcote Water Polo Club - The Krakens


The Northcote Water Polo Club: The Krakens was established in 2018 and is a new, but rapidly growing club that is passionate about providing an inclusive club environment for anyone that wants to play water polo. 

We are training at the new Northcote Aquatic & Recreation Centre and at MLC (Methodist Ladies' College), and Ivanhoe Grammar School (Adults).  

We compete in the Victorian Water Polo Metro Competition (various locations around Melbourne, games on Sundays) and carnivals such as Ballarat and Geelong and interstate (Australian Youth Championships) 

Junior Teams (9 to 18 yrs). You are welcome to join us for a free no obligation session or two but we do need to know prior.  If you decide to particpate then your child will be given some one on one training to build an understanding of the game and the techniques used. If you want to come along please get in touch

For the youngest KRAKLES (7-10 yrs) we are piloting a new program at NARC. Pre-register here. 

Adult Members: We have had significant interest in the Adult game and have now run Wednesday sessions at Ivanhoe Grammar school.  We are currently preparing our first competitive team/s in the W/M State league.  If you are keen to get involved, and potentially help organise this, please register here.  We currently have complete beginners to ex-players so all are welcome.
