The HaBaWaBa experience continues

Why don’t keep spreading the HaBaWaBa values to older kids, giving them the chance to live again the HaBaWaBa atmosphere?

The 8th edition of HaBaWaBa PLUS, dedicated to U13 (with separated boys’ and girls’ tournaments) and U10 (mixed) teams, is scheduled for June, 2024, from 23rd to 30th: REGISTER YOUR TEAM!

About HaBaWaBa PLUS

In 2016 Waterpolo Development chose to spread sports values also among older kids. So we started HaBaWaBa PLUS, an event reserved to Under 13 waterpolo players that differs from HaBaWaBa International Festival also because of the greater importance of the competitive element: due to the same reason, in 2018 (3rd edition) Waterpolo Development doubled the competion, splitting the girls tournament from the boys one. 

Due to organizational needs, the HaBaWaBa PLUS will also host the HaBaWaBa U10 category tournament for mixed teams, which was previously part of the HaBaWaBa International Festival.   

As the International Festival, HaBaWaBa PLUS assigns the Fair Play Trophy and has playing-educational workshops. As the Festival, you can follow it through the official HaBaWaBa App.
