- throwing and catching in the water
- shooting at goal
- tackling a player with the ball
- defending the ball

The Club asking everyone to help promote this to confident swimmers who are interested in getting to grips with the basics. Please download, print and circulate the poster in schools, swimming clubs, swimming pools, gyms etc and share on facebook with any groups etc.
The Club appreciate that if successful it may make their training sessions a little crowded for a while but hope everyone is keen to help out and get involved to help grow the club.
Sirens are in the play offs for promotion to Division 2 on 23/24 Jan 2016, so please support a local Club giving regular opportunities to play matches and develop skills.
