Nuno Paz, Head Coach

Water is everything to me. After starting my professional life teaching swimming, I decided to go into another watersport – waterpolo, which I enjoyed immensely, especially the team camaraderie and physical intensity of the sport. Swimming has always been an important part of my life, with my mother, my uncle and my grandfather all leading the way in the sport of swimming. Coaching swimmers is now a big part of my daily routine, alongside my job as a physical education teacher in a school. What really motivates me is building relationships with all the swimmers on the team. I love to see their improvements and achievements and share in the joy of their victories, no matter how big or small! Speaking of water, I have to mention my passion during non-working hours – surfing! My motto for every member of the team is “work hard, cry hard, give everything you can and you will reach your goal, but don’t forget everything is a little bit easier if you enjoy it!”
