LEARN ABOUT THE COACHES DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM at RCFN with DRAKE SLADKY
During the Coaches Development Program (CDP), participants are immersed in the day-to-day operations of a CrossFit affiliate and provided a unique opportunity to shadow and learn from some of CrossFit’s most successful affiliates and coaches. An intensive 1-3 day program designed for trainers at all levels, the CDP is open to no more than four people for any given session, allowing staff members to assess each participant’s individual needs and interests to better create a customized learning experience.
Through workshops, lectures and peer discussion, attendees will dramatically improve their coaching skills as they observe experienced coaches at work, develop lesson plans, and lead classes. The longtime affiliate owners/head coaches who lead the course provide constant feedback, analysis, and suggestions for improvement.
Beyond coaching and running classes, participants will have the opportunity to take part in the day-to-day operation of the affiliate, learning about program development and implementation, leadership, business practices and long-term planning.
Upon completion of the Coach Development Program trainers will return to their home affiliates with a fresh sense of purpose and new perspectives for how to train clients and run their businesses.
