Hi, my name is Alberto, I have been coaching water polo at DVE Aquatic for nearly 4 years. I come from a swimming background, competing at national level (in Venezuela) when I was 12 and 13 years old. I entered the world of water polo at Uni, where I played for nearly 4 years, and I have loved the game ever since. It is a great way to keep fit in the water and have fun with friends! I love coaching at DVE Aquatic as it is a very inclusive club, which strives to bring the best of the players and helping them grow, both in and out of the pool. What I love the most about coaching is seeing the players become more confident with the game, gaining new skills, improving all the time and having fun along the way. During the last 4 years, I have coached our junior teams making finals with different age groups. What I love the most about these teams is that no matter if we make it to the finals or not, everyone gives it their all in the pool and has fun.
Hi, my name is Jamie Osland. I have only been involved with Water Polo for the last 2 years after my son showed an interest to play. I played as a junior in NSW many, many years ago and, through my son’s involvement, I have had the opportunity to rekindle my love for this sport. Water Polo is non-compromising and has nowhere to hide. It is also the best team sport in the water – who does not love to swim, be part of the team, and be allowed to make contact with the opposition. I have been coaching for most of my life in other sports and particularly like the development age groups. I enjoy working with the kids on forming the foundations as this is the hardest to achieve and the most rewarding as a coach.
Hi, my name is Isabel and I just turned 17. I have been playing water polo for 3 years now, after swimming for many years. I love water polo because it is a challenging and strategic game and I love playing in a team with my friends.The main reason I like coaching is because I love working with kids and really want to promote the sport especially to young girls. Something fun about me - I am ambidextrous and can play with either hand.

I love everything about water polo but mainly having fun with friends and making good memoriesI like coaching the younger kids because if I can make them love water polo as much as I do, that would be amazing. It is a great sport that keeps you fit and strong.I have represented Peru in the 2015 Sud-American Championships, I have played with the Victorian Team, and recently came 3rd in Australia with DVE Aquatic for U16 comp.
