Aussie Stingers Coach, Predrag Mihailovic, said Water Polo Australia is working through a number of options around the squad’s schedule for the next 12 months.

“These are unprecedented times, which are continuously changing, so we are looking at different scenarios to ensure the squad can train and be as prepared as we can.

“While we don’t know what the international calendar will look like leading into Tokyo, that won’t stop us working hard.

“The Aussie Stingers are in good spirits and very focused on the task at hand as we focus on the next 12months preparation for Tokyo.

“Our squad of 20 are right now training with their respective State Institutes as well as regularly meeting as a national squad.  We are still connected as a squad even while each player prepares from their own home towns,” said Mihailovic.
