Experience and recommendations of Watlicam.
“As the director of the academy, my principle objective is that our alumni reach the maximum level of water polo capability, particularly regarding their individual technical skills, the fundamental element for their tactical development. Thanks to watlicam, this process of education is easier to understand and overall the best option. The real time images help me as a trainer to make the opportune corrections of the technical movements I need to improve and in the same moment the player can immediately visualize the corrections after seeing them.”
