When asked what are the most important skills for your players to develop? Coach Weiny said: “ The most important skills for all water polo athletes to develop are fundamental technical and physical skills such as movement in the water, body positioning and balance. The other skill that an athlete needs to develop is their understanding of the game so that they can see play develop and anticipate further development. Using this fundamental base and understanding of the game, an athlete has the ability to apply creativity and inventiveness to the game of water polo.”
When asked what are your coaching goals as Foothill Club Coach? Coach Weiny said: “In the short term, I would like to develop the individual athletes and team so that they increase their competitiveness and effectiveness as players in their club and high school seasons. Long term, player development should give the athletes the tools to pursue higher levels of play at the junior college, university national or international level.”
