This Week’s News!
The continued growth of our gym’s community is in the hands of the developing athletes and coaches that comprise our membership. Our training curriculums and pipelines are world-class and produce successful athletes and competitors as well as successful individuals pursuing physical, mental, and emotional growth.
To continue to grow and have more services available to our membership and community we need to establish and implement a comparable coaching and leadership program that builds world-class coaches who are leaders in their field. Our Instructor/Leadership Training (ILT) and coaching internships will provide participants with the skills to be great coaches who are technically proficient, supportive of all personality types, and capable of running safe, effective training.
If your goals include becoming a coach for any of the programs offered at VG/CFM then participation in the ILT will be a useful, meaningful, and required step of your development.
The ILT is a 20 unit program, with each unit consisting of:
A required reading assignment
One hour of classroom discussion
One hour of practical instruction/participation
The Coaching Internship is done as an assistant instructor to be shadowed and evaluated by a full instructor for different periods of time depending on the program and the individual.
Our next Martial Arts ILT session will start on Thursday, May 23rd. The class will meet on Thursdays from 7pm until 10pm. If you are being considered for this then Coach has probably already contacted you. If he has not already talked to you and you are interested in participating then please talk with Coach.
Some amazing moments at this year’s Pans by the sports most talented individuals!
APRIL’s THEME – TEAMWORK
We believe in dedication to our ideals and team, consistently striving for excellence through an intelligent approach and hard work, and having the discipline to achieve our goals without wavering.
Our shield is not divided. It is united by teamwork. Iron sharpens on iron, man sharpens on man. There is no ego in our training, we support and trust in each other to prepare our team for life’s challenges.
Components of teamwork:
Instead of me writing how the following components of teamwork affect a team, we will discuss these things during class this month. Take a little time to think about and be ready to discuss how the following are necessary for, or contribute to a healthy team culture:
11. Goals and Objectives
14. Conflict Resolution
