Education for coaches

"Online courses for water polo coaches with the best learning method"

The Coaches Institute, BIWPA's coaching academy, presents its training courses for water polo coaches from around the world. We believe the best education for coaches is an essential part for a good development of the athlete and the sport.

The courses are perfectly adapted to the digital environment, distributed in four units, ranging from initiation to development, technification and high-performance.

Our goal

Teach the theoretical-practical base necessary to all water polo coaches to benefit the development and performance of athletes. We focus our efforts on countries with a lack of regulated education for coaches. 

After laying the foundations, our objective is to keep educating coaches by introducing new concepts and knowledge for the development and technification of the sport in the area.
