Coach 2 Coach - Continuing Education for Gymnastics Coaches
This past weekend, I had the privilege of attending the first ever Coach2Coach retreat - a continuing education for gymnastics coaches seminar - at Flip Fest camp in Crossville, Tennessee. To date, it has been the most informative, motivating, and energetic gymnastics training I have experienced. Coach2Coach brought in amazing coaches and instructors including Michelle Kocan, Randy Parish, Linda Thorberg, Brant Lutska, Kelsea Kocan, and Geoffrey Neely.
Coach2Coach reignited my passion as a gymnastics coach. Anyone who knows me as a coach knows that I am crazy about my kids, and about being the best coach that I can be. After this weekend, I have the ability to be even better. If you still aren't convinced, check out these great reasons to consider attending the next Coach2Coach retreat - continuing education for gymnastics coaches.
3 Reasons to Attend Coach2Coach
- Amazing instructors! The group of instructors that we worked with all weekend are among the best in the business. Many of them are reoccurring presenters at National and Regional Congresses.
- Tons of new ideas! With over a hundred gymnastics coaches all in one place, the amount of new skills and drills ideas was almost overwhelming. As someone who creates lesson plans for my program, it was a fantastic resource.
- Build strong relationships in the gymnastics community! It is great to learn more about skill progressions, break downs, and lesson plan ideas. However, I think that it is just as important to build relationships within our gymnastics community. I met and had discussions with coaches and gym owners from all over the country. I was able to ask questions and pick the brains of some of the top gymnastics minds in the country. That is priceless.
To use a phrase from Michelle Kocan, gymnastics class for many kids is their “Magic Hour.” It is the hour that they most look forward to every week. As a coach, I am able to make it even more magical. I might be on my fifth class of the day, but to the kids in my class it is their first class. Our impact as coaches is huge. I want to be a positive impact. Coach2Coach gave me the resources to be a positive impact.
See you at the gym!
