ILDIKÓ SZEDLMAYER WATERPOLO METHOD
"I believe there is a different way of teaching and training kids. Training them with love, positive reinforcement, sense of humor, and lots of creativity. I believe they are my partners in my work."
THE FIRST ILLUSTRATED INSTRUCTIONAL WATER POLO BOOK IN THE WORLD
FOR KIDS, COACHES, AND PARENTS - WATERPROOF, COLORFUL, CARTOON STYLE, EXPENDABLE
"Ildikó Szedlmayer’s fantastic booklet is based on an essential realization: a picture speaks a thousand words. A playful, colorful picture does even more. The pictures in this book stimulate the kids’ imagination in the same way as the graphics of video games – games that are increasingly difficult to draw kids away from these days.
The booklet is an important tool for coaches: the pictures offer a clearly understandable and quick way of teaching. Giving the waterproof pages to the kids will enable them to discuss and clarify the exercises together. As incredible as it may sound, a real professional conversation develops among the children. With the help of this booklet, this conversation can be continued during the actual games, too: the coach’s explanation and communication among the kids will translate instantly into direct situations of the game.
The same children who play unbelievably fast and smart with video games will become quick and clever decision-makers in the water, too. The joy is simultaneously physical and mental, both individual and shared. I recommend it from my heart!."
