Fern Creek CrossFit (FCCF) sets itself apart from other CrossFit programs, through the results of our athletes. Those results come from athlete effort, and behind that effort is our inspiring and well educated professional CrossFit coaching staff.
We believe that all programs administer at FCCF should be of the highest quality and consistency. Every athlete should leave each class feeling as though they made progress in their performance, learned something of value, and were inspired to reach the goals they set out in our Goal Setting Program.
As our athlete community grows, our staff must grow as well. To ensure quality is not lost, and that we best utilize the resources within our own community, FCCF has created the Fern Creek CrossFit Coaching Development Program. We are excited to announce our Coaching Development Program will be lead by Coach Robbie Brown. Robbie has been a dedicated athlete and coach for many years at FCCF. His valuable experience and expertise will help nurture a strong professional coaching staff for many years to come.
The Coaching Development Program will educate incoming coaches about our specific program, standards, and community. Additionally, the program aims to enhance individual coaching differences and contributions, while maintaining a high level of cohesion.
Adding new people and new points of view is exciting and valuable. At the same time, we value maintaining specific standards and codes of conduct.
Training Program Details
Coaches in Training will learn coaching skills through a shadowing process, reading and research assignments, and competency assessments. The FCCF Coaching Development Program is extensive and challenging. Coaches in Training will participate in over 60 hours of shadowing and mentoring during the program with countless other hours of studying.
As athletes, you’ll notice that the floor Coach may have Coaches in Training shadowing during class. They are there to observe both the coach, and the class as a whole. Initially, they are not expected to interact in any way while shadowing.
Eventually Coaches in Training will move from shadowing, to coaching part of your class, and then to coaching the entire thing. During this time, the normal floor Coach will be present, but will not be the Coach on the floor (in charge).
Coaches in Training will gain knowledge through outside resources. These resources include an extensive reading list, website research, and event attendance requirements. We want them to be integral members of our FCCF community, but also a part of the larger CrossFit community.
Any feedback you have on our coaches in training is welcome. Please keep in mind that those in the program have shown a dedication to CrossFit and learning, a passion for teaching others, and a love for FCCF specifically!
