West Dorset Warriors Swimming Club

West Dorset Waterpolo represented Dorset over 3 age groups at the recent Inter Regional Championships, held at Millfield School organised by James Baker, Exeter and England Talent Coach.

Morning session saw both U/13, with West Dorset’s, Luke Wheeler from Dorchester Middle school, Cameron Robinson and George Green both from St Osmunds middle school, and  the U/17 team with Cam Dabbs, Yr 11 at Thomas Hardye school playing.

Dorset’s U/13  1st match was against Devon, with some great passing and great team play saw, Luke Wheeler score a hat-trick and both Cameron and George scoring too, meant the team maximised in their scoring and Devon being defeated by Dorset.      U/13s then had to beat the Gloucester, who had lost against Devon, to win by a minimum of 10 goals.  This match was switching winning ends, until the last quarter, which saw Dorset come out on top and winning the tournaments age group.   Medals were presented at end of session.

U/17 team had a less fortunate day, coming in third behind Gloucester and winners Devon.

Afternoons matches saw Dorset’s U/15 , with West Dorset’s Harry Wheeler and Oliva Foice.(missing Grace Sheehy) all Yr10 from Thomas Hardye school,  First match was somewhat a messy affair, with an exclusion, this unsettled the squad, which Devon then capitalised on and beat Dorset.   Gloucester was definitely a game Dorset had to win.  With some excellent tactical play and stunning shooting, saw a team totally in charge and resulted in Dorset comfortably beating Gloucs.  Harry Wheeler high scorer of 5 goals in tournament, meant Dorset were runners up to Devon.

West Dorset Waterpolo see’s this season start with maximum no of players allowed in pool for all 4 sessions.

Coaching from age 6 up to 60, and now after many requests from the girls, sees a new hour long “girls only” session.

Featuring 30 swimmers, some past players and some new ones.

However, the girls have one problem.  No completion!

The girls are training in two squads, U16 and U14 and have no other local teams to play.

We are endeavouring to contact other clubs who may be able to provide teams for friendly matches.

If you can provide team contacts , please email..
