- Current Team
Francesco Serraino is the JCU basketball coach. He is Italian and originally from the city of Milazzo, Sicily. Francesco graduated with a degree in physical education, and this gave him the opportunity to explore many athletic fields, such as basketball. Although he has not been a basketball coach for a long time, he has been practicing capoeira for 15 years and coaching this Brazilian dance for 6 years. He has been the basketball coach at JCU for 2 years. What he appreciates about coaching the most is having the chance to get to know the rational and relational capacities of an athlete. Francesco remembers very clearly the smile on the girls of the JCU basketball team when they had the chance to finally participate in a competitive tournament. Our Lady Gladiators were happy to be there and to play basketball!
