David Paradelo to take on a new role with Water Polo Canada

(Montreal, QC – August 9, 2018) – Water Polo Canada is excited to announce that David Paradelo will take on new responsibilities as the NextGen Lead Coach with the men’s and women’s program. In his new role, Paradelo will manage and coordinate all NextGen activities and staff as well as overseeing the development and alignment of the NextGen programs and initiatives. Paradelo maintains his role of assistant coach with Women’s National Team Program, and he will continue to support the National Training Centre in Montreal.

This new NextGen Lead Coach position has been created to ensure that the daily training and competition environment of the identified athletes are well implemented and monitored. This initiative is critical to Water Polo Canada’s overall High Performance Development Strategy as it will provide the current NextGen athletes the support and direction they need while improving alignment in high performance water polo in Canada.

Paradelo will be working in close collaboration with Water Polo Canada’s High Performance Director, Justin Oliveira, as he will undertake the development of strategies to ensure NextGen athletes are on the right path for the 2024 Olympic games. In addition, David Paradelo will review the performance of all WPC NextGen identified athletes and work with their respective coaches to develop an effective yearly training plan.

Coach Paradelo sees this new adventure as an incredible opportunity to work with the athletes of the future and continue to shape the Canadian water polo landscape: “I’m really excited to work on this new NextGen development program. The future is bright, and we have amazing athletes and dedicated coaches all across the country. It will be an honour for me to work with them to bring our development programs to a higher level. We will have more high performance camps this year, targeting younger athletes to monitor their progression early on. This summer I had the opportunity to coach the Junior women’s national team and to work with the Junior men at the Pan American Championships, and I have been amazed by their dedication and work ethic. I can’t wait to start working with them again!”

“We are delighted to have David transition to this important role with Water Polo Canada. Over the years he has shown his dedication to the Women’s National Team, but also to Water Polo Canada through the many initiatives he continually leads. This new position is aimed to continue the stability and progress our National Teams have made through to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games by developing and monitoring our NextGen athletes.” explained Justin Oliveira, Water Polo Canada High Performance Director.
