BRIAN KILREA LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT COACHING AWARD

Hart_David.jpg

David Hart

The Geoff Gowan is presented by the Coaching Association of Canada to recognize lifetime contribution to coaching development. How fitting it is, that Ottawa’s own David Hart just received this major national award.

We are pleased to recognize David Hart for his national success, but also for his 35 years of work with water polo in Ottawa. From 2000 to 2008, David was Head Coach for the Ottawa Titans, which has grown to become one of the largest and best managed clubs in Canada. Even before that, he was co-captain of the Canadian water polo squad at the ‘76 and ‘82 Olympics, finishing ninth.

David Hart is the only coach to have worked with all six Canadian National Team programs, and has won eight international medals as a coach. He is the only Canadian to have coached a foreign water polo national team, having been the head coach for Brazil’s Senior National Women’s Team.

David’s major contributions to the sport include creating and implementing programs for the National Coaching Certification Program, and creating the “I Love Water Polo” program which is offered in aquatic centres and municipal programs across Canada. As the driving force behind the Canadian Water Polo League, he created the first-ever amateur league for an Olympic summer sport in Canada. He also is the author of the hugely successful Canadian Water Polo Dream Team concept.

John Bales, CEO of the Coaching Association of Canada, says “David Hart embodies commitment to sport and is an inspiration to us all.”
