Lea Rowing Club welcomes Argentinian national squad coach as new Director of Junior Rowing
Martín Cambareri joins the Club on 1 November, after coaching Argentinian National Squad, which topped the league table at the 2018 Youth Olympics earlier this month.
Martín will take over leadership of Lea R.C.’s Junior Programme. He will also spend a proportion of his time coaching the Club’s high performance women, and focusing on coach development across the club.
Martín has more than a decade of experience, with six years at International level. He coached Argentina’s Tigre Boat Club between 2007 to 2018 from a low competition level to be one of the most successful and decorated clubs in the country. As well as raising the standards year on year at both Tigre Boat Club and the Argentinian National Squad, he has been Director of the National Talent Identification Program, which has helped the National Squad top the Medal Table overall for the first time in Argentinian Rowing History at the 2018 Olympic Youth Games.
Lucy Stackpool-Moore, Lea R.C. Captain said: “We are delighted to welcome Martin to Lea R.C. from his fantastic successes at the Argentine national junior squad. He is joining us at the peak of his career and I’m sure will take our high performing juniors to the next level.”
Martín said: “I am fantastically excited to joining the Lea R.C. and look forward to working with the Club in raising performance levels, developing talent and delivering results that members can be proud of. I can’t wait to get started!”
Lucy added: “On behalf of the club, I would like to express our wholehearted gratitude to Dick Millard who is stepping down after years of service as Director of Junior Rowing. The junior squad has had the most fantastic achievements at the National level, and we most recently won club of the year award at the Hackney Youth Sports Awards. The Club’s excellent Junior programme has gone from strength to strength under his leadership, ably supported by Paul Carter, Mark Cushway, and the other dedicated junior coaches.”
