Coaches

Each of our coaches is certified through the National Coaching Certification Program. Over several months, coaches learn the components of Gymnastics Canada’s Three-F philosophy (Fun, Fitness, and Fundamentals) and movement patterns. Coaches are trained in Risk Management, know how to apply an ethical decision making process, and how to effectively plan a practice through Long-Term Athlete Development Principles.

Coaches in Training

Potential coaches may begin training with certified staff at age 13 as a Pre-CIT, and enter the Coach In Training (CIT) program at age 15. After several months of courses, workbooks, and practical coaching hours, a CIT will graduate to coach status, fully trained and prepared to lead a class of athletes.

The Benefits of Gymnastics

 

There are incredible benefits to participation in gymnastics that are both physical and emotional. While some children use their talents and skills to become competitive gymnasts, others participate in the sport because they enjoy learning new skills and developing their level of fitness.

Gymnastics will increase strength, flexibility, endurance and coordination.

Young children will learn valuable social skills at their gymnastics classes. They will have to listen, follow directions, take turns and be respectful to each other. Children in gymnastics classes learn to perform in front of others without anxiety and build trusting, respectful relationships with their coaches and team-mates.

Many studies report that there is a strong correlation between physically fit children and academic achievement. Nerve cells multiply, promoting healthy brain function and strengthening brain connections. The cognitive requirements of gymnastics will carry over into the classroom.

Gymnastics lessons promote discipline, determination, courage and self-confidence, and kids will benefit from learning from their mistakes. Self-esteem builds a gymnast’s character, and those who attend classes with others will understand fairness and trust. Setting goals will become natural, and children will learn to dream big outside of the gym, as well.
