Bluewater has Great Coaches

competitive gymnasticsAt the Bluewater Gymnastics Club we believe that program excellence stems from the leadership and coaching staff. We strongly believe in giving our coaches opportunities to access information and training that will give them the best set of coaching tools to teach your child whether they are a beginner just getting started or a national team member preparing for international competition.

All coaches at Bluewater are required to take the National Coaching Certification Programs, as outlined by the policies of our Provincial Sport Governing Body.

The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) is a coach training and certification program for 65 different sports and is offered in both official languages across Canada. NCCP workshops are designed to meet the needs of all types of coaches, from the first-time coach to the head coach of a national team. The NCCP is the recognized national standard for coach training and certification in Canada. As part of the program, all coaches are trained in ethical decision-making and sport safety.

In addition to the NCCP requirments we also hold, in-house coaching clinics spotting exams, health and safety meetings, and our own ten step training protocol to enhance the education of our staff to provide our participants with one of the best sets of coaches in the nation
