My Water Polo Journey: Nikita Strbac, Year 12

From Year 12 Student Nikita Strbac

When I was nine and overseas in Serbia, I witnessed Water Polo for the first time. Serbia is number one in the world for Water Polo, so this was amazing. When I got home from the holiday, I started a development program and I’ve been obsessed ever since.

I started playing Water Polo for Waverley in Year 6 and have played 1sts Water Polo since Year 7. I learnt a lot in my first few years playing with Charlie Negus (big role model!), and I started to lead the team in Year 9. We won the CAS premiership when I was in Year 8 – a memorable moment for me at Waverley.

My plan after Waverley is to attend University at UTS and study a double degree as part of the Elite Athlete Scheme: Bachelor of Business, Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation.

I would love my Water Polo career to take me overseas, playing for different clubs across Europe while continuing to represent Australia.
