“Seeing Surge Black develop and succeed
as a team is so rewarding, each member
brings their strengths and supports each other.”
ANDREW HALL (RUSTY)
SURGE BLACK CAPTAIN
Melbourne Surge’s membership continues to grow each year, and with it the number of competitive players!
The club adds an additional team to the Victorian State League approximately every two years due to the ongoing growth.
The club now fields four teams of varying abilities and goals. Additionally our social members play scratch matches and train to improve their skills, understanding of the game, and general fitness (or to have fun!)
If you would like to play or have any other enquiries, just get in touch.
The Gold Team consists of Surges most experienced players and/or highly skilled players. Competing in SL-5, they are focussed, highly competitive and play to win.
Surge Black first started in 2014, and builds on a foundation of established abilities. The team is competitive, has fun and develops their skills year on year.
Formed in 2016 by graduates from our Rookies Program, Surge Silver is developmental, improving on the basics, working together and having fun.
Surge Red was formed in 2017 due to unprecedented intake of Rookies. The team is transforming into a more competitive team with each season that progresses.
WOMEN IN WATER POLO
Studies have shown that women are vastly under-represented in Australian sport, and Melbourne Surge wants to change that.
While the majority of our members are men, women are more than welcome to be members and train with us in a supported environment.
We hope to field a women’s team; we currently support our female members to train and compete with other teams. Water Polo Vic runs both Men’s and Women’s leagues.
As an inclusive club, we are also keen to support the sporting experiences of the trans, intersex, and non-gender binary communities. Contact us about how we can support your needs.
Melbourne Surge charges a nominal annual membership fee each financial year so our members are covered by our Constitution, Code of Conduct and Insurance.
Twice a year, Melbourne Surge charges all members a training fee; this is to cover pool hire, coaches, training equipment and other items. Fees are decided based on the number of weeks, pool hire and number of members.
WATER POLO VICTORIA
For our competitive members, Water Polo Vic charges a fee once per financial year to take part in both summer and winter comps.
