Hi Everyone. For those of you that don’t know I’m Dario Lourenco. I have always loved sport since a young age. I believe sport is a great opportunity for you to learn about yourself, teamwork and can teach you many life lessons.

I have had some success as a player and as a coach at PSI winning a few medals along the way, including 2 x u18 golds as a player and 1 x u18 gold as a coach which is my biggest coaching achievement.
