The BIWPA project

Barcelona Internacional Water Polo Academy (BIWPA) is a project of excellence and quality moved by the enthusiasm and willingness to educate young water polo players at all athletic, human and intellectual levels.

BIWPA was born in 2014 with the intention to broadcast a way of training that has been developing particularly in Spain, which is based on the improvement and enhancement of individual skills.

Our mission

We offer a variety of camps, conceived and directed by renowned coaches with international recognition. These are programs based on sporting excellence, both for young players who want to improve their technique and for teams who want to elevate their game.

We believe in a methodology that has been successfully developing for 15-20 years in the Catalan Swimming Federation (FCN) and in Barcelona, which focuses on the fundamentals, the individual and technique and tactics, combined with real game situations and decision making.
