Coach In Training, Leadership Program

Ortona Gymnastics places a great deal of importance upon this program because it trains young men and women 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 for providing our youth with an opportunity for personal and professional growth and achievement.

The 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 Coach in Training program is to provide our more mature youth and athletes 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 as a fully certified Trained Gymnastics Foundations Artistic coach. 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. Please consider this when completing your Schedule of Availability for gymming time. If at any time your school grades begin to suffer, training suffers or it just becomes overwhelming, you can be arbitrarily pulled from the program after discussions with the Trainee and parent/guardian.

If your child participated in the program in the past, the process is still required to be followed, please do not assume they are automatically in the program.  There is a selection process and space limitations to this program.
