Senior Men

The New Zealand Senior Men's Team squads consist of players from school-age to university students, and from professional players overseas to players in the workforce. It is our aim to assist and develop those athletes committed to the programme and that fulfill the requirements set by the High Performance Programme (HPP) to be successful on the highest water polo stage possible.

Senior Men's Programme - 2024

The purpose of this plan is to present an unified approach with the end goal of creating a clear pathway for the National Men’s program to qualify and be competitive at the Brisbane Olympic Games in 2032.

The next four years mark a pivotal chapter for the New Zealand Men’s Squad. We must align the pathway and create a stronger daily training environment that is consistent and cost effective. We must think strategically and forward plan to ensure we are reaching our full potential. We must be efficient and effective with resources and opportunties.
