Kyle Bos

Goalie Coach

My name is Kyle Bos and for the past 10 years of my life I have been a part of the water polo community in BC and around the world. Although I am only 19 years old I have travelled around the world to play and train as a goalkeeper. I have spent two separate summers overseas in Budapest, Hungary with UVSE, as well as competing in Junior Olympics, two different times for NorthWest Waterpolo club from Seattle, Washington.

 

While traveling around to improve myself was an experience of a lifetime, I will always think of Fraser Valley Water Polo club as my home club as I played for 6 years with them and I hope to see its athletes and reputation rise to new heights. I am currently the primary goalkeeper for San Diego Mesa in San Diego, California which my team came in first in its division last season. Over the years I have had many different coaches with unique and varying coaching styles.This has led to new techniques and skills that have developed me into a leader of the sport and I hope to pass on to younger generations.
