17U/19U Competitive Boys

2023-24 Information


Compete against other clubs from across Canada

Striving for performance and being the best you can be at your sport as an individual and team. Local games are used for athlete and team development. Travel 3-5x/season to play other teams from across Canada.

These athletes are expected to show up to all the practices, games, events, work hard, be responsible, be a good teammate and have a growth mindset.*

Communicate with coaches when they cannot attend a practice or an event.

*Growth Mindset - Individuals who believe their talents can be developed through hard work, good strategies & habits, and input from others.


17U-19U is for athletes born in 2005-2009*

*Athletes born in 2009 can join this program but only with approval from the Technical Director <td@vortexwaterpolo.ca>.


5x/week for 2.5 Hours/practice (on most weeks, please see next section)


Practices are held at Pan Am Pool [25 Poseidon Bay, Winnipeg, MB].

Practices may occasionally change (time and location) or be cancelled throughout the season due to events (such as swim meets), holidays, or when coaches are away with other teams. When possible, we will always make an effort to organize additional training opportunities.
