Jan Vernet (23/08/2000), is a young water polo player from CN Poblenou that, like other young players worldwide, has participated in BIWPA programs. Jan is so passionate about water polo that talking to him is facing a water polo encyclopedia in a 14yo boy. But there’s more,  Jan combines water polo with his studies in the IEA Oriol Martorell, one of the few Spanish schools in which students divide their time between compulsory education and learning an artistic discipline – the music in his case- at the highest level.

I started playing polo when I was five. At first, it was football and waterpolo, but football bored me too much. I saw that in waterpolo there’s more gameplay, and that was what captivated me and took me to continue with all the enthusiasm in the world.

And you also did music.

I started music at the Music School of Sant Andreu, wanted to percussion, but no spaces. And finally I ended up playing the euphonium. Then in third grade I entered the CEPSA Oriol Martorell, but I was lucky. It is the only school in Catalonia that combines music and dance, and allows you to combine it well.

Decided to devote more time to the music.

It was unconsciously. I was little, and at that time, although we had very good coaches, we did not require much in water polo.

And if you had to decide now, music or water polo?

When I started and I began to know everyone water polo, it was like finding paradise. And then I discovered that there was a CAR, and my jaw dropped. Since then, my challenge is to get the highest quality and technique in all respects, to reach the elite water polo. Not only the division of honor, but also play the Champions League. Play a selection is my dream.

If you were offered a scholarship to be in the CAR, then you would not mind changing institute.

Not at all. Even if you were lucky you could even combine it with music. But if no luck, my goal is and will be the sport, especially water polo.

Then when you finish school, what’s next?

I’d do anything related to sports, journalism and psychology, I love sports psychology.

Why?

I think it’s very important because it helps to understand the sport. I had a problem because I did not like the instrument, and I paid obsessing over the waterpolo. Just then,  the Catalan team called me. But I pushed myself so much that I screwed up. That helped me learn even more water polo.

How did you managed it?

For starters, I changed my instrument. Now I play the trumpet, which I love because it is an instrument that feel all colors of music, it helped me relax. Also, I noticed Felipe Perrone, who is very calm and always plays with his head.

Would you like them to call you again?

I would love to. At that time I could not take the call, also had players who outweighed me. Now I would like to give me another chance to learn more, I have a more open mind and I could adapt better to the game.

You talked about Felipe Perrone, what other players call your attention?

I do not have favorites, but I try to learn from the best of each player. Right now I’ve noticed a lot in Miguel Gasulla (1996), a new player in the water polo’s elite. Also Svilen Piralkov, which was a beast of a player. I also fixed in Varga brothers, Pietro Figlioli … I could tell you a lot.

You are an encyclopedia of water polo.
I try to have the best knowledge of water polo, because I love. Whether at home or on the bus, when I have some free time after homework, my head is in the water polo.

That’s why you end up in BIWPA campus.

It’s pretty cool. From early in the morning, you see the videos and then apply it in the water … It’s a very important job that I love. The coaches are amazing (Joan Colomer, Xavi Balaguer, Yuri Colet …) have much experience and technique, and taught me a lot. In addition, BIWPA invites referees, players, sports psychologists … You learn everything because it is very complete.

Two training sessions a day …

If you like water polo, you have to sacrifice, and if you have the opportunity to participate in a campus so you have to maximize. If you sacrifice a lot, water polo will give you back.

Si quieres conocer de cerca la metodología que utiliza BIWPA para ayudar a mejorar el nivel waterpolístico de nuestros jugadores, ésta es tu oportunidad. Tras el gran interés que habéis demostrado por realizar prácticas en nuestros programas, ahora podréis conocer de primera mano como desarrollamos la metodología en BIWPA con una semana de prácticas en nuestro Summer Camp del CAR de Sant Cugat.

Se trata de una oportunidad única para conocer la metodología utilizada por entrenadores españoles de reconocido prestigio internacional y que ha marcado una identidad propia en los sistemas de entrenamiento del waterpolo Español. Esta metodología tiene sus inicios en el Master Profesional en Alto Rendimiento en deportes de equipo impartido por Paco Seirul.lo, Xesco Espar, Marcelí Massafred, y Joan Solé entre otros.

En este MBA se desarrolla la teoría del entrenamiento integrado aplicada a los deportes de equipo utilizada por grandes entrenadores españoles de distintos deportes como Pep Guardiola en fútbol, Xavi Pascual en Balonmano, Ignacio Coque en Baloncesto y en Waterpolo entrenadores como Rafa Aguilar (DT de la RFEN), Dani Nart (CN Terrassa), Joan Colomer (técnico de BIWPA), Betu Fernández (CN Mataró) y Quim Colet (DT de la FCN) que han introducido esta metodología en los últimos 10 años y que otros entrenadores han seguido.

entrenadores internship

Esta metodología representa una forma distinta de pensar, en la que interactúan factores decisivos como la cooperación, la oposición y la toma de decisiones, características específicas de los deportes de equipo. Cualquier entrenador que conozca esta filosofia, ya muy extendida en el waterpolo español, no sólo mejorará el rendimiento de su equipo, además se diferenciará del resto de entrenadores que desconocen como funciona y, por lo tanto, no pueden aplicarla.

Ahora tienes la oportunidad de conocer en primera linea como se desarrollan estos entrenamientos, solo tienes que venir a nuestro Summer Camp para realizar unas prácticas exclusivas, donde tendrás una relación directa con los entrenadores de BIWPA y podrás poner en práctica todo aquello que vayas aprendiendo. En estas prácticas vivirás el día a día de los entrenamientos de Tecnificación en el CAR de Sant Cugat, y trabajarás codo a codo con nuestros entrenadores en una experiencia única.

Los Internships tendrán lugar entre el 14 de julio y el 3 de agosto, de lunes a viernes todas las semanas, y al finalizarlas recibirás un certificado de BIWPA acreditando tu asistencia. Para más información, ponte en contacto con nosotros en info@biwpa.com.
