Education Of The Water Polo School

Water Polo School

About The Water Polo School

Our sport, due to its specificity, requires an earlier start. It is necessary to achieve a satisfactory swimming quality (or mobility in the water) in order to satisfactorily master the technique and tactics of water polo and to start developing motor skills in the water. The best time to start training for several years is between the ages of seven and nine. A student who has mastered the basic swimming techniques can be accepted up to the age of 10 to 12.

Because the swimming school belongs to the first level, we must point out that there are no restrictions for the first course of swimming training, although in our conditions it is difficult to accommodate children under 5 years old, so after learning their training process becomes more fundamental Swimming techniques must be continued very carefully.

The youngest should work with the most professional coaches, with years of pedagogical experience or the ability to absorb and animate children first (and later teach them the basics of this sport).

Introductory preparation for physical activity takes 1 to 2 years, which means boys complete this phase. The most important thing in this period is to create an organizational scheme that will allow maximum progress under the given conditions.

It is very important that the work with the beginner groups is organized across the width of the pool, in order to correct them, through intensive work and pointing out the mistakes, allowing the children to progress quickly and learn the basic movements in water polo . With such an organization of training, the coach can point out mistakes to children as often as possible, establish communication with them and encourage them to continue practicing this sport.

For the trainings with the youngest categories you have to get small goals for children. In addition to good training in swimming and other movements, children of this age should be encouraged to take part in this sport and they should be shown the advantages of this sport.

Water polo education should last until the age of 17, after which senior career should begin.

Gifted children who reach a certain level and have a sense of the game can also play in the first team before the age of seventeen. Such players simply have to train with the senior team because that is the only place where they have proper conditions and competition for further progress.

Normally water polo school lasts about 8 years, however this is not set as a fixed period and rule but is managed individually for each child with reference to the age when the child started playing water polo.

About the site

Few scientific materials have been provided on this sport. Therefore, this project was started as a professional support to ''illuminate'' water polo.

We think this is an important investment to maintain high standards of sport and achieve ever higher goals in the technical mastery of this sport.
