Gearing Up For Big Things: Ft. Lauderdale Hungarian Water Polo Club



New talent along with Coach Ish's experience & hands on approach will undoubtedly produce huge success!!

The club is taking a new approach to the teaching & training of local water polo athletes. Besides building an age group, the primary goal is to identify specific talents within each individual then train them to reach their potential. Club members will be training abroad in Hungary as well. The club is set up to where every practice is a water polo clinic. I know of no other club in south Florida where the coach is in the water with the kids 90% of the time.

Blowing the whistle on a decline in women coaches



Oklahoma women's basketball coach Sherri Coale.


As barriers for female athletes have fallen, those for female coaches have risen. Changing that trend requires exposing hidden obstacles and challenging long-standing prejudices.

Title IX, the gender-equity law that celebrated its 45th anniversary this summer, has come to be synonymous with the advancement of women’s athletic opportunities. But that’s only partly true. As the number of women athletes has swelled sixfold, and women’s sports have become more competitive, the percentage of women coaching those teams has dropped from 90 percent to less than half. Sometimes athletic directors, such as Joe Sterrett at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania, have few qualified women apply for head coaching jobs – especially in sports like soccer and volleyball. But he and several coaches interviewed by the Monitor are working to address the factors that have caused the decline, from gender bias in hiring to lack of professional development opportunities. “It matters a lot for girls, but it’s also important for young boys,” says Nicole LaVoi, co-director of Tucker Center for Research on Girls and Women in Sport in Minneapolis. Less than 3 percent of NCAA men’s teams are led by female coaches. “We need boys to view and perceive and value women leaders as well,” she adds. “And when they have a [female] coach, that’s one way we can do that.”
