Whether you want to call it an internship, a mentorship or an apprenticeship, the objective should be the same: Learn the ins and outs of coaching at a high level and getting results with hundreds of athletes and clients.
Think that number is off?
Take a trainer who is coaching 24 sessions a week (above average) and assume 5 clients train once a week, 5 train twice, and 3 train 3x per week.
That’s only 13 different people a week
In our apprenticeship program you will sometimes see up to 60 people in a single day. Over the course of a 3-4 month apprenticeship, you will have received nearly 3 years of hands on training experience compared to a regular trainer.
Each apprentice that we take on in our facility isn’t going to be a wallflower. How can we see if you can really coach if we never let you get involved. Over your time, you will be given greater and greater freedoms to work with athletes and clients from leading warm ups, to cueing exercises to leading warm ups and for exceptional cases, doing full assessments.
Truthfully, we aren’t looking to take on 10 coaches
We aren’t even looking for 5
Heck 3 might even be too much.
We only will take on 1 or 2 coaches at any given time. The reason why? We want to ensure that we are making each coach the best version of themselves possible. We want to give them a chance to develop their skills and their brains to match their passion.
Have you ever had a teacher just sit and answer your questions for 3 hours straight because they are excited about teaching you? Then you haven’t met Bill Rom, the owner of Superior Athletics.
Bill wants the Superior Athletics apprenticeship program to be a massive experience for every person who takes part in it.
He even has this to say about it:
“Coaches who enter our program are going to want to do one of two things. Either they are going to be so energized that they eat, sleep and breathe this industry after, or they are going to be so scared of how hard great coaches work that they change professions. Both of these results are good to me.”
