GAIN Apprentorship

Gambetta Athletic Improvement Network (GAIN) Apprentorship

Coaching athletic development from design to implementation

The GAIN Apprentorship program is a special educational experience for professionals who desire to follow the functional path. The inspiration for this program derives from my experience with the European Sport School format, and the direct learning opportunities I had early in my career. The program builds on the weekend and one-day seminars, which are often valuable experiences, but can only scratch the surface of training topics due to time and facility constraints. The Apprentorship blends theory and practice in a five-day coaching school with a small teacher-to-student ratio. You will share with other professionals to learn in an atmosphere designed to raise the level of expertise of all those attending—including the mentors.

The initial coaching school is just the beginning. In the year following the school, there will be webcasts and web meetings to foster continued growth and interaction. At the conclusion of one cycle of the full program, we will have a “Meeting of the Minds”— a symposium style gathering of those who have participated in the Apprentorship featuring presentations from recognized experts and graduates of the program.

Our first Apprentorship school will be June 26 - July 1, 2008 in Sunrise, Florida, at the KICS International Holiday Inn Sports Complex. The second school will be December 4 - 9, 2008 at the same site. It is open to sport coaches, conditioning coaches, athletic trainers, physical therapists, chiropractors and doctors. Apply now, to be one of the twenty accepted to each school.
