Australian and Spanish coaches to host player workshops in September

Western Province Schools’ Water Polo will be hosting a series of hi-performance player workshops under the tutelage of Australian and Spanish internationals over the first two weekends of September.

Three of the quartet – ex-SA Men’s player Simon Daley, triple Olympian Rhys Howden and double Olympic Bronze medallist Bronwen Knox – hail from one of Australia’s most respected coaching establishments; Brisbane-based Academy Waterpolo. The fourth member of the team is Aitor Pinho, previously recognised as best goalkeeper in Spain.

The workshops will be age and gender based and limited in numbers to ensure personal attention.

Boys’ sessions will take place on 1, 2 & 3 September, with girls on 8, 9 & 10 September. All sessions will take place at Reddam High in Tokai in heated swimming pools.

These four individuals are among some of the best actively involved in coaching school-age players and bring massive experience as players and coaches. This is a unique opportunity for local players to be exposed to the latest techniques. WP-based coaches will also be attending sessions hosted by the four international coaches to ensure that they too are exposed to the latest techniques in player development.

Each group will have two x two-hour sessions and the cost is R750 per player. Space is limited for each age and gender group, book and pay early to secure your position. This is a one-off opportunity to be exposed to some of the best water polo coaches to have visited SA shores in recent years.
