Carlos Dinares is excited to show you this video where Nick d’Antoni shares his experience at Lake Samish this weekend. Carlos likes to help junior rowing coaches to learn more about the sport and how to develop better skills on their rowers to get them more ready for college rowing and the USA National Team.
Here is a presentation from Long Beach Junior Crew about Nick d’Antoni, their Varsity Men’s coach.
Nick D’Antoni is excited to join Long Beach Junior Crew as the men’s varsity coach. Nick comes to the program after starting his coaching career with the Newport Aquatic Center juniors in 2006, during which time he led the men’s team to 3 consecutive team points championships (‘08, ’09, and ’10) at the Southwest Regionals and back to back national championships in the men’s youth heavyweight 8 (2008 & 2009). In 2008, he coached the men’s junior national team pair (2-) at the world championships to the highest finish ever by an American crew in that event. In 2009 he also coached the men’s youth lightweight 8 to a national championship, becoming the first coach to win both men’s eights events in the same year at the US Rowing Youth National Championships.
Nick began his competitive rowing career in 1996 for the Newport Aquatic Center as a junior, then moved on to pursue the sport at Orange Coast College followed by Rutgers University. Nick has always enjoyed both sweep and sculling disciplines: racing in as many boats as possible as a junior, primarily in 8’s in college, and training in his single in his spare time. Currently, he enjoys rowing and competing as often as time allows.
