Before, he will rejoin BIWPA with the Camps and other projects in the U.S.
BIWPA co-founder Yuri Colet landed in Barcelona on Thursday 8 to be presented as the new coach of the Poble Nou senior team. He will also take charge of the 12 to 13-year old category. After 3 years in Soller (Mallorca), where he has been managing the technical management of the water polo section, Yuri Colet couldn’t turn down the opportunity to come back to his home city. Apart from joining the Poble Nou family, Colet will also return to the BIWPAcademy as head coach.
Before the regular season kicks off, though, Quim Colet and Yuri Colet, along with Sarah Lizotte, the American player currently in CN Mediterrani, will lead the Summer Water Polo Camps in Barcelona, with still places available. In mid-July, the three of them will travel to the West Coast of the United States to impart a three-day Clinic in San Diego from the 18th to the 20th, a few days before the Junior Olympics. The Clinic will focus on the technical improvement of young players with the help of the Watlicam Waterline Camera, which offers a real-time performance analysis of athletes below and above the water. A unique tool that will turn the experience into something unforgettable.
BIWPA will also be present in the Junior Olympics–the largest age group water polo tournament in the USA–with a stand in the village. The two Colets and Lizotte will be representing BIWPA during the two sessions of the tournament, from the 22nd to the 25th (males) and from the 27th to the 30th of July (females). The Junior Olympics are a great event for BIWPA to enhance its Academy based in Barcelona, which has very strong ties with the Barcelona Campus of the North-American ES International School. It will also allow BIWPA to recruit American youngsters interested in improving water polo and education in the wonderful city of Barcelona, Spain.
