Basketball

I am a certified basketball coach by Swedish Basketball Federation + EuroLeague Basketball Institute + FC Barcelona Universitas trainer for team sports and member of NSCA (National Strength & Conditioning Association – Coloradao, U.S.) + 2 years of studies at The National Academy of P.E. & Sports in Bucharest, Romania. I undertook several high level courses lectured by elite coaches as Zeljko Obradovic, Ettore Messina, Sergio Scariolo, Xavi Pascuale, Aito Garcia Reneses, Dirk Bauermann, Julio Lamas any many others. See below, the link to my coach licenses. Highlights of my career as coach, organization developer and project manager:

  • Assistant coach with scouting responsibilities in top professional men Basketball League in Romania, with team U Mobitelco BT Transilvania Cluj Napoca, championship winner in Romania at that time, and participant in EuroChallenge competition. After this great experience, I was offered the role of assistant coach and scouter with the Romanian National Team (Men) for the European Championship Qualifications. Unfortunately some private issues made me decline this great offer, and so I continued to focus on other big sport projects.
  • Organization developer at ASC Labradors. With a huge amount of work and dedication, I founded the first private owned club in Romania, ASC Labradors, that managed to raise 100% autochthonous private capital to build a sports hall, in order to strengthen the club identity and have a house for sports activities and competitions.
  • Project manager and implementer of Hela Malmo project in Malmo, Sweden. The project, beside the sporting scope, had also a very special social scope, and was awarded by the Royal Swedish House.
  • Head coach at St Helena Basketball Skovde, Swedish Women Second League. At this club I was awarded as “Coach of the year”.

 

Athletic Movement Skills Training

Nowadays I am coordinator coach at Labradors Functional Athletic Gym. Due to my team coach background, I am able to bring a new way of planning, coordinating and motivating groups in the fitness field. An injury interrupted my pro carrier, but helped me highly value the importance of approaching training correctly. I’ve been lucky to have the great opportunity to learn from Francesco Cuzzolin (Italian national team and Toronto Raptors, NBA), Jackie Ansley (athletic coach at Atlanta Dream, Washington Mystics, WNBA), Ganon Baker (skills trainer for elite NBA players as Koby Bryant, LeBron James) and so on. The fundament of these experiences started with 2 years of studies at The National Academy of P.E. & Sports in Bucharest, Romania.
