Being a coach was something I started to like and feel totally comfortable with, it was January 2004 when a friend asked me to work with him, in Lima, Peru.
I was hired as coordinator in the swimming Aqualab club. I was put in charge of the technical part of the education, and reviewed the pedagogy that teachers applied. This was a place of trial for me, where I decided to be a full time coach.
Already in the year 2009 to 2011, I wanted to dedicate myself full time to be a trainer and was offered the position of head coach in the province of “Los Rios”, for the city of Babahoyo, with its rural community and climate. In the two years I worked with them we accomplished great things.
The team I was in charge of began to win, a deed that only discipline and the proper psychology bestows, and something that they had never accomplished until that year 2010. The province was beginning to get its share of medals and be recognized for its youthful swimming talents. We produced a swimmer that was the best all-around in his category, and swimmers that ranked countrywide and internationally also.
In 2011-2013 I returned to Buenos Aires, Argentina, to work at the club of “River Plate” where I had trained years before. The person in charge of the coaches was Orlando Moccagatta former coach of world champion Jose Meolans, and a very good friend and mentor to me. I took care of groups of children who were aged 9 to 14 years, we had several national champions in the category, and we were national champions in the absolute category for several years. It was a valuable practice for me. Working with Orlando was a great learning experience.
In 2014-2015, I worked for the Italian club, as it was planning to begin work on the pedagogy and technical part of the skill, I took care of the formation of a new swimming team, and got to enhance their abilities and skills.
In 2014 I was also coordinator and responsible for the planning of different groups of swimmers and triathletes, and directed groups where I would teach the techniques needed to gain technical improvement, this was as much for the professional as for the layman who only wants definition in the style, or just wants to relax while swimming.
