Water Polo Australia is pleased to announce the team selected for the 2024 World Aquatics Men’s U16 Water Polo Championships.

Bringing together the most promising 16&U athletes from around the world, the World Championships will take place in Malta from June 18-24.

Head Coach of the Australian 16&U Men John Fox is excited to see the talented team compete in Europe.

“It’s a really exciting team that’s been selected based on form displayed by the boys over the last 12 months, including the international tours to Europe and New Zealand, their performances at the Australian Youth Water Polo Championships and the subsequent training camps we’ve had,” said Fox.

“We have a really well balanced team on both sides of the pool. We’ve got some really strong offensive players but we’ve also got some fantastic defensive talents that will fit into our defensive systems really well.

“Congratulations to all the boys selected, not only is this a fantastic opportunity but it’s also a great stepping stone on their pathways towards future (Ord Minnett Aussie) Sharks representation,” he said.
