About Coach Roman
Hi, my name is Roman Doyle and I am from Flower Mound, Texas.
I had been a swimmer for many years before I was introduced to water polo. I decided to practice water polo in the swim off-season, and I am so glad that I did because that’s when my passion for this unique sport began. Water polo was a much better fit for me than swimming was because it’s competitive and strategic but also requires team cooperation. I was the varsity captain my junior and senior years at Flower Mound High School, and during this time I also played for North Texas Thunder.
I began coaching for Thunder when I was a senior in high school. After a two-year break in which I got settled at UT Dallas, I returned to coaching for Thunder where I coached all age groups. During this time, I took three teams to compete at the National Junior Olympics. I continued to coach for Thunder until I graduated with a major in chemistry. The long term plan is to utilize this degree as a high school teacher and coach for a school in the DFW area.
I have also been fortunate enough to be the assistant coach for two high schools in the North Texas area: Flower Mound HS (‘17 &’18) and Southlake Carroll HS (‘19). During the 2018 season, I helped see my alma mater to its first state championship. I moved on to help Southlake Carroll the next year where the boys finished fourth and the girls finished second at State.
Water polo can be a great opportunity for athletes to learn how to work hard, cooperate with others, and think on their feet. I want to create an environment that will enable athletes to learn these skills and together with Sigma, I know I can.
