In these areas, he has published several books, chapters, and national and international articles. 

As a lecturer he works on the training of teachers and coaches at different levels in different countries. He has been an active lecturer for the IHF since 1987.

He recently joined the Development Committee of the South and Central America Handball Confederation and has lectured at several international congresses and events.

‘Building the foundation through handball’

“Dr Greco’s presentation will focus on methodological lines for the coordination training: coordination as the basis for perceptual-motor learning, the repertoire, and the technical capacity of the handball player, in interaction with the development of executive functions; how to coordinate and plan teaching-learning and coordination training (but not only) with children; coordination training as a support for better decision-making in the game; how to coordinate the perceptual-motor processes with decision making through exercises and games.”
