TIJUANA, Mexico, November 5, 2015 - An International Level II
Coaches Course reached its successful conclusion at the FIVB
Regional Development Center in Baja California.
A total of 12 coaches from eight different countries received
certificates after following the course given by instructors
Antonio Rizola Neto from Brazil and Jorge Perez Vento from Cuba.
“We feel satisfied with all the work done here at this center
and with the activities registered over the last 11 days. We
congratulate all of you for taking one more step in your careers
and at the same time we feel honoured to have two volleyball
legends and two great friends like coaches Rizola and Perez
Vento here,” said
High Performance Director Cesar Osuna Brambila.
Coaches from Argentina, Cuba, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Nicaragua,
México, Trinidad and Tobago, and the United States were able to
test and upgrade their knowledge during theoretical and
practical sessions, with their participation being evaluated by
the instructors. The course participants were also able to work
alongside members of the team in Baja California who manage
Mexico's national volleyball teams, who regularly practise on
the premises of the High Performance Centre.
“This has been a wonderful course. I feel satisfied and so glad
to work with you and also with such a great friend of mine, like
Antonio Rizola,” said Perez Vento. “In fact, this is the first
time we have worked together on a course after knowing each
other for such a long time.”
The closing ceremony also served to reward the three coaches
with the highest results in the theoretical exam. The following
participants received distinctions: Hugo Jovan Sanchez from
Mexico, Mario Romero from Costa Rica, and Eduardo Murguia from

coaching and sharing this passion for volleyball around the
world. [...] I was here many times as coach. This was my first
course as an instructor and I have enjoyed this great
experience,” Rizola remarked.
