Before becoming a coach for the water polo team Sarajevo (September, 2008) and Torpedo (January, 2013), I have been a water polo player and a swimmer for national teams of Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia. This experience of more than 15 years as an athlete and a coach gave me an insight into the ins and outs of athletic preparation, methods of coaching, and inner workings of both sports. During my 7 years of coaching and 3 years as a Sports Director, I developed outstanding communication skills. I am reliable, punctual, and I am good at motivating my players and my assistant coaches. As a sports worker, I am an enthusiastic and creative a team player.
I am a licensed water polo and swimming coach. I have extensive knowledge of swimming and water polo techniques used in competition and I know how to perform them properly and how to increase speed time.
I have the skills and ability to recruit new swimmers and water polo players, set up schedules for swim and water polo meets, conduct practice sessions and make sure swimmers and water polo players have the supplies and equipment they need for peak performance. I have the ability to keep excellent records of everyone on the team and to know any special needs or medical condition the swimmers and water polo players have.
Being a former competitive swimmer and water polo player, I have lots of patience and I am very compassionate towards others but I know when to push to provide the swimmers and water polo players with the inspiration they need to do the very best they can. I am very observant with the ability to help swimmers and water polo players develop their form until they can do each technique perfectly.
I am knowledgeable about all of the safety rules and emergency procedures associated with swimming and water polo. I also know and adhere to the rules and regulations that pertain to swimming and water polo competitions and I believe in teaching my squad the importance of practicing good sportsmanship and working as a team.
