I have 25 years coaching pool in Costa Rica and now 2 years coaching snooker. I am certified as international pool coach since 2012 and as international snooker coach by PABSA since 2021.
I have developed a 150 pages course to improve mental and physical skills for pool and snooker players, it contains, nutrition, psychology and pedagogy applied to billiards, it also have mathematical systems for positioning and cushions, some of them invented by me as Junior Cushions System (it is really useful to teach the use of the cushions and even narrate a frame).
The course has many other topics like technical English and Spanish, history culture, rules, laws and more. I am a PABSA (Pan American Billiards and Snooker Association) Coach Trainer for Latin America and PABSA Chief Coordinator for Latin America.
