  • Wild Parents Meeting Highlights Cont'd

    Highlights:

    • Parent feedback was greatly appreciated by the Board throughout the season and helped the Board craft a better program. We have used, and continue to use, these learnings to craft next year’s program.

    • This was a building year made difficult by athletes aging out on both the girls and boys side, but we managed to stabilize the program through more interactions with the broader community, including scrimmages and our partnership with Seawolves. We also enjoyed great success with the U14 program and hope to build on that as some of those athletes move into the NCL U16 program next year.

    • As a refresher on the arrangement with Seawolves, Wild will continue to develop a high performance program, leaving non-competitive programming to Seawolves and other community clubs. Dragan and the coaches have been working with Seawolves coaches to develop the details of that program, but it will involve Seawolves athletes joining our practices various times a week for “enhanced training”. Some seawolves athletes may choose to join Wild full time next season, but the typical path for those who want higher performance will be enhanced training in U12/U14, then joining Wild full time in U16.

    • Going forward, this arrangement will continue to be develop. It will require good feedback from those involved to get it right.

    • The coaching staff next year is comprised of: Gyula - head coach and U19/U16 squad coach; Dragan - athletic director; Benji - U14 squad coach; and Bojan - U12/U10 squad coach. Should numbers necessitate more coaching resources, we will supplement the younger age group squads with senior athletes who express the desire to coach and have taken the training.

    • From a competition perspective, we’re looking at various options for intra-squad scrimmages in the city. This may be a repeat of City League or some kind of house league. Dragan and other community coaches are working on the details.

    • We will be working on the details of a competition schedule over the summer. It will be similar to this year although we are looking at adding some out of province travel for the U12 and U14 squads. Please stay tuned. As usual, we will need parent feedback to gauge interest.

    • Please remember we are having an August swim camp. Nearly 20 athletes have already signed up. Please send Shelby a note if you’re interested:
    competition@wildwaterpolo.com

    • As always, volunteers will be needed next year. Please take a look at the handbook on the website to get a feel for positions.

    • We encourage everyone to register soon as possible so we can adapt the program to the numbers and get a good jump on the season. You will find attached an overview of the season program and the registration package including a new U10 Entry Program!

    And thanks for your patience as we move our email addresses to our new '.com' format and setup new distribution lists.

    Please click the link in email you received asking you to subscribe to our mailing list to have your email address included (critical for communication!).

    Have a great summer everyone and see a lot of you at the pool in August for our summer swim camp!

  • Coach Biography: Cont'd

    Bojan is driven by continuous improvement of his coaching strategy in order to provide the most effective learning environment for the athletes in his care. At the core of this philosophy is the belief that sport is an excellent vehicle for the most difficult and important life lessons which can be useful to a person their whole life. This makes him a very athlete centered coach with a keen eye onto the psychological aspect of performance.

    Moreover, his working career has led him down the pedagogic path, working in summer camps as well as foster homes for high needs children.

    " Knowing the technique and strategy involved with a sport is the easy part of the two necessary aspects for optimal coaching. The other is building relationships with the athletes. This requires listening and learning from them as well as being flexible in order to provide the type of attention each person needs to achieve their best."
