EuroHockey Institute Podcast, Series 4 Episode 3: Cecilia Rognoni

Posted On 03/01/2023

Series 4 Episode 3: In our first EuroHockey Institute podcast for 2023, Jack Rolfe speaks to the wonderful Cecilia Rognoni.

She reflects on an outstanding playing career, highlighted by Argentina’s breakthrough Olympic silver medal and the “best tournament of my life”: World Cup gold in 2002 in Perth when she was named player of the tournament.

The journey took her to the Netherlands to initially play and then coach. Cecilia talks about those experiences – and playing with Luciana Aymar – and how they have informed her coaching, specifically on the importance of giving freedom to players and the tools to solve problems on the field as well as the separation between the role of a coach and trainer.
