July 22, 2013

The winner of the S & R Sport Coach of the Month for July 2013 is Edwin Barrera of the Southern Pacific Zone. For winning coach of the month Edwin receives a $50 gift certificate to Below is the nomination submitted by his zone.

I am writing you to nominate Coach Edwin Barrera for coach of the month from 714 Water Polo Club because of the dedication to our club and our kids. He first started out with one age group in this newly formed club and has helped it grow to 4 more age groups that cover 10u/12u 14u boys and 16U boys and girls. The practices are held out of 714wpc home pool Villa Park HS where he has taken many players from the neighboring schools and helped them get better and become students of the game. Coach Edwin came over to 714wpc to start it up with help from John Carcich and Matt Lundquist after helping another club that is no longer running. The fact that Coach Edwin was a part of the ODP program as a coach and also was part of the Youth National Team Coaching staff for 2 years helps in his teaching of the game at a high level.
This year he has coached the 14u boys team to a 2nd place finish at the Winterfest Tournament and a Kap 7 Tournament along with First Place finishes at the Winterfest Tournament and Kap 7 Tournament also taking a team to Jo Quals in the highly talented SOPAC Zone. The dedication that Coach Edwin has for the kids and the program shows by the way his team of players play for him and interact in the pool. He is constantly pushing the TEAM game and helps the kids understand that "if you aren't willing to stand for something, you will fall for anything" words that really mean so much to the players along with the idea of "T.E.A.M.= Together, Everyone, Achieves, More" Coach Edwin will be getting married this September 2013 and we all wish him the best in his new "life position" We wish him the best and really happy that he is coaching this club now and into the future!!!
