Client Reviews

I am very pleased with the training that Coach Ricardo Guimaraes provided for my Pro-Team in Miami for the duration of four months. 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 where always specific and with a very positive and constructive vibe. I definitely recommend Carioca Volleyball Club services if you are passionate about beach volleyball.
By way of background, I met Mr. Guimarares through USA Volleyball. My son, Charlie, who will be a senior at McQuaid Jesuit High School in Rochester, New York, has participated in the USA High Performance Beach Volleyball Program for the past four years. Mr. Guimaraes has been one of Charlie's coach. Consequently, I have had the opportunity to se him provide instruction, observe him interact with those he coaches, speak with him on several occasions, and socialized with him. In fact, from what was initially a more or less professional relationship, a close friendship has develop. I therefore, feel confident in speaking to his character and qualifications to serve as a coach to any athlete. As to Mr. Guimaraes' character, I cannot speak highly enough of him. He has impressed me as an intelligent, honest, forthright and loyal individual.
