Although Hector enjoyed his playing days and the opportunities that they have given him, he feels most at home coaching.
"I'm at my best coaching teams, I emphasise a lot of flair and allow players to be themselves. We must give our young players what they haven't got and then they'll be unstoppable. I truly believe Australia can be a big power in world football."
Sessions are held on grass and perhaps not so conventionally, on the sands at local beaches.
South Americans grow up playing football on the beach and its where they develop their skills, strength and fitness levels. Most importantly it is their skills that are developed while playing on sand and it is these skills that the South Americans are famous for. Hector has been training young Australians this way for 15 years and is convinced that it is a great way to develop skills and fitness.
"Football players in South America do it without thinking, they just kick a ball, juggle, all sorts of things and they never get tired. That's because its great for fitness. You can run on the hard sand or the soft sand. I would say it's two to three times harder than training on grass, so three months on the beach gets you fit for an entire season. More importantly it teaches great balance and reflexes because the ball bounces a different way each time. It also teaches you to keep your eyes in full contact with the ball".
