Matt Oberman named in Born 2000 squad!

Our very own Matthew Oberman was the only WA player named in the squad. The Born 2000 Men will undertake their first camp at the end of May ahead of FINA’s Youth World Championships in August 11-19 at Hungary.

Players from around Australia were selected following the 18U National Aged Club Championships held in April.

The Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) will play host to the squad’s camp from May 29 to June 2.

The 15 member squad will train alongside the Aussie Sharks and with head coach Elvis Fatovic as they prepare for the FINA World League Super Finals.

Born 2000 men’s head coach Andrew Yanitsas is excited at the emerging talent in Australian water polo.

“There is a strong depth of junior talent in Australian water polo and that is evident in the current squad of players we have selected.

“This squad will be introduced to a set of national expectations and values which we believe will enable them to perform on the international stage in August,” he said.

At the completion of this camp, the final Born 2000 men’s squad of 13 players to compete at the Youth world Championships will be selected.
