Coach In Training Program Fall 2021
We are officially running our Coach In Training program for 14+ year olds, starting on October 1st 2021 and runs through until December 11th 2021.
What is it?
Our CIT (Coach in Training) program is a 10 week program with a guaranteed interview at 11 weeks. This program is designed to teach youth how to enter the working world in a professional & responsible way. We will teach them all the tools to not only be a coach, but to gain experience working with children, working along side a team, collaboration and interviewing skills.
This program is designed to lead youth into becoming a coach, they are guaranteed an interview but not guaranteed a job by the end of this program.
How it works:
The Coach in Training Program offers in depth training about all things Gymnastics Energy! We go through spotting techniques, how to set up and coach various drills and stations for all age groups. We cover all things safety, Leadership, Communication, Emergency preparedness, Lesson planning and much more.
Over the course of our 10 weeks together, we will have 9 weeks “In-Class” together on Friday evenings from 4:00-6:00pm & 9 -“On-the-Floor” sessions with a mentor coach throughout the week. CIT’s will get to choose which day and time they would prefer to come in for their Mentor coaching sessions from a list given on the first day of our In-Class session.
How to Apply:
This is the exciting part! Have your interested CIT email Brooke at email@example.com their resume (it’s okay if there is little experience… this is just a formality and teaching them how to make a resume & how the process works!)
Brooke will then email them a link to register (the cost is $100.00 per CIT) with the course overview calendar with course dates & times, as well as our COVID protocols.
We can’t wait to welcome new and familiar faces back into the gym in a new way this fall! 💕

Women’s Artistic Gymnastics is the most popular and well known to the public of all the gymnastics disciplines. It is an incredibly challenging sport, demanding strength, power, flexibility, agility, courage, and a combination of technical precision and artistic creativity. When these elements are mastered, the performances appear almost effortless and are riveting to watch.
The competition program of women’s artistic gymnastics includes the vaulting table, the uneven bars, the beam, and the floor.
The competition program of men’s artistic gymnastics consists of 6 routines: floor exercises, pommel horse, rings, vault, parallel bars and the horizontal bar. Floor exercises are performed on a 12×12 meter mat without musical accompaniment. Men’s routines are characterized by a sequence of linked elements that demonstrate simultaneously strength, flexibility, and balance. Each exercise consists of movements which combine a number of elements, such as somersaults, handstands, and rotations.
The maximum time allowed for an exercise is 1 minute and 10 seconds.
Our gym moved to our existing facility in 2017 with 22,000 sq ft of space for gymnastics. We are located in the heart of the Niagara region at 333 Ontario St. St Catharines. Our facility boasts a fantastic viewing area (temporarily closed due to COVID), 2 trampolines, a foam pit, uneven and parallel bars, balance beams, large climbing ropes, a fantastic rock wall for climbing, a spring floor with tumbling equipment and more!
