TESTIMONIAL: I am very pleased with the training that Coach Ricardo Guimaraes provided for my Pro-Team in Miami for four months in Miami. Ricardo is a very passionate coach and gives full attention to all of the athletes and provides constructive feedback for them to get better. I personally feel that I got so much better at my approach and serve receive when working with him. We practiced twice a day 5 days a week and the trainings were always specific and with a very positive and constructive vibe. I definitely recommend Carioca services if you are passionate about beach volleyball.
