Cuban Ernesto Aroche, current coach of the Spanish boxing team, has been invited by the Brazilian Olympic Committee (COB) to teach an international course for the High Performance Sports Course (CEAR) of the Brazilian Coaching Academy (ABT ). The activities took place from July 25 to 31 at the training center of the Brazilian Boxing Confederation, located at the Centro de Alto Rendimento, in São Paulo, and brought together 13 professionals.
Ernesto Aroche is a graduate in Physical Culture and Sports, Master in High Performance Sports, specialist in boxing and self-defense, sports masseur and was coach of the Costa Rica national team at the Pan American Games in Lima 2019. He has also professional experiences in Indonesia and now in Spain.
“I am very happy to be in Brazil to teach this course. Brazilian boxing is growing upwards. In recent years he has had excellent results and for me it is a great pleasure to share all my experience with these professionals”, said Ernesto Aroche, who was one of the heads of preparation and training great Cuban athletes such as Jorge Gutiérrez, Guillermo Rigondeaux, Odlanier Solís, Yan Barthelemy, Yudel Jhonson, Yuniel Dorticós.
The International Internship module is one of the strengths of the ABT, an opportunity to exchange experiences and information with great world coaches, in addition to providing theoretical and practical support for the development of modalities.
It is very important to pass on knowledge to other people. It’s one of the things that makes me happiest. Expand everywhere. And that is what we have done here in this course. I hope that my knowledge and experience will be beneficial for Brazilian coaches to continue improving. The more knowledge, the more planning and therefore better results for the athletes,” said Ernesto.
Some of the best top coaches in the country participate in this ABT group, such as Suellen Regina Souza, the first woman to coach the Brazilian team and Vladmir Juliano de Godoi, coach who trained Olympic medalist in Tokyo, Abner Teixeira, who has also participated in one of Action’s hands-on activities alongside other national team athletes.
“The international camp is an extremely important action, so I would like to thank COB President Paulo Wanderley for this training and development opportunity offered to boxing coaches. The Academia Brasileira de Treinadores increases the capacity of technicians to meet an essential requirement for our objective: high performance training. The high-level trainer carries the athlete and must use all the information to extract the best from him by looking for the result,” said Marcos Brito, president of the Brazilian Boxing Confederation.
In 2020, the Brazilian Olympic Institute, the Education Domain of COB, launched the fifth class of CEAR. After following a one-year course in the Sports Development axis, four face-to-face modules online via the Zoom platform and four distance modules, students now complete their studies with the internship module.
This is the third international stage promoted by the COB in 2022. In early May, the swimming class had a fruitful meeting with Canadian Tom Johnson, responsible for taking the athletes to 10 Olympic Games and 14 World Championships. The badminton professionals gathered in Teresina (PI) for an internship with fellow Canadian Jennifer Lee, who captained her country’s team to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
By the end of the year, four more international courses are planned for badminton, boxing, weightlifting and swimming coaches.
The Brazilian Coaching Academy aims to complement, through quality educational activities, the professional training of high-level coaches and, thus, contribute in a relevant way to the achievement of positive results in Olympic sport.
