10 of our 13 junior teams made finals, 5 made grand finals and the club won three premierships! We want to thank all the coaches, managers and volunteers that helped make the season so successful! We were particularly proud of the U18 boys who with only one true age U18 pushed the Barras hard in their Grand Final. It was a quality game of water polo. We are looking forward to seeing them in the GF next season!

Why you should consider RC for your young ladies!
Rivercity is a club that encourages all girls to play for their schools first but welcomes those that would want to improve by having a second and even third game with the club. This season was a perfect example of that. Our U14 B Premiership winning team had only 2 true age U14 players and the rest were U13 from the club, Bridgidine, Loretto and BGGS. Our U15C Premiership winning team started because we had an older sister who wanted to play so we created a team, we struggled to get numbers so we partnered with Warriors and after the first week when the team were a player down for the entire game the team was then undefeated for the rest of the season. Of the 13 Players, 3 were U15, 3 were U14 and the other seven were U13! Girls played up with us from BGGS, MBS & Loretto.
