‘Youth Sport Development for Water Polo in Serbia’ by Singapore Swimming Association (SSA)

(For NROC Team Sports Coaches only)


Water Polo is the number one sport in Serbia. Their current Men’s team were crowned champions at the Rio Olympics (2016), World Aquatics Championship (2015), European Champion (2016), FINA World League Super Final Championships (2015, 2016) and FINA Water Polo World Cup (2014). The Serbian Water Polo coaching system has also been a story of success. The sharing session, followed by a dialogue, will cover these areas:

  1. Talent identification of Water Polo players from a very young age
  2. Athlete development plans for Water Polo players
  3. How the Serbian government supports sports

The workshop is presented by Mr Dejan Milakovic (Water Polo Head Coach, ASC Sliema (Malta)). Dejan had achieved success as Igor Milanovic’s assistant at Italian Water Polo club Pro Recco, where he won the treble (European Champions League, Italian Scudetto and Italian Cup). Dejan was also part of the Serbian national team coaching staff at youth and ‘B’ team level. 

Prior to coaching, Dejan was a professional Water Polo player in Serbia, where he played for top clubs such as Partizan Belgrade and Red Star. He also represented Yugoslavia at the youth level.
