Our “Coaches in Training” or C.I.T.’s are Teens (13+ years). Many of our C.I.T.’s are former Pulsars competitive athletes. However, having had previous competitive experience isn’t a requirement to become a CIT. We provide professional development training, along with close supervision by a fully certified coach. This enables a CIT to develop the confidence required to become a Coach, when the time is right. All CIT’s must have First Aid training.
Our Recreational Coaches are trained through the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). All staff are First-Aid certified; have provided current Vulnerable Sector Screening; have completed Risk Management; and Respect in Sport certification. They receive on-going Professional development training, workshops and support to ensure the Recreational athletes are improving their personal physical strength, flexibility, co-ordination and balance. Coaches build the athletes confidence and independence, as well as many other social and teamwork skills. It is a huge responsibility and our coaches are continually updating their skills.
Our Competitive Coaches are minimum NCCP 2 certified in artistic, trampoline and tumbling. All staff are First-Aid certified; have provided current Vulnerable Sector Screening; have completed Risk Management; and Respect in Sport certification. They participate in on-going Professional development training, workshops and support.
