Pre-Coach In Training Program

Ortona Gymnastics places a great deal of importance in the Pre-Coach in Training Program because it trains youth to be leaders and it is through this training that many future staff members are cultivated. It is with this in mind that we are always trying to improve the quality of our program.  We enjoy developing the future leaders of our athletes and providing our youth with an opportunity for personal and professional growth.  The program has been revamped and we are excited to introduce these changes and improvements this 2021-2022 season. 

The Pre-Coach in Training Program for Ortona members is thoroughly planned in accordance with the standards and requirements prescribed by several levels of protocol, from Alberta Labour for Underaged Employees, National Coaching Standards as per NCCP and Ortona’s own internal Policies and Procedures.

The Pre-CIT program is to provide youth with an opportunity to develop leadership and life skills and to broaden their understanding of what it means to take on a more responsible role in a gymnastics and sports setting. Often this program is viewed as a stepping stone between athlete and staff member.  While for many this may be the case, our program has been designed to provide a well-rounded experience that will benefit participants in all types of future endeavours.

As this program also runs during the school year, expectations of work are tempered to school expectations, training demands and life balance. If at any time your school grades begin to suffer, training suffers or it just becomes overwhelming, you can discuss options with your supervisor.

Registrants must be 14 years of age by November 30th, 2021

There are only 10 spots available.

Applications are currently closed for the year 2021/22, but stay tuned for information on next year’s program!
