Coach in Training

Summer Program

To apply ---> scroll to bottom of page

Our Coach in Training (CIT) program is for energetic and motivated teenagers (ages 12-15) interested in learning and developing leadership skills working with children in a camp setting. No previous gymnastics or parkour experience is necessary. This program is designed so that CITs develop leadership skills through direct supervision, regular conferences with their instructors/onsite director, and a hands on experience engaging with campers.

 

You’ll also have some free time to play in the gym with other CITs as well as coach instructed times to develop your own skills as an athlete.

 

We believe that summer camps provide youth with the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to succeed as leaders both at camp and beyond. The mandate of the CIT program is to provide participants with the opportunity to develop communication, coaching, and organization skills and to take on a leadership position in a supportive and inclusive environment. 

By the end of the program, all CITs will have:

-A strong understanding of the River City Gymnastics philosophy and values
