    Canadian Pre-CIT program 

    At the recent Alberta Gymnastics Congress I got my first chance to see this document. It’s a coach training program for ages 13-14.

    Gymnastics Canada has updated their (old) Development Leader (Dev’L) program, rebranding it the “Pre-CIT program”.

    In the first year of the Pre-CIT program, candidates will complete 5 hours of tutorials, covering 10 topic areas, and assist in the gym for 10 hours.

    In the second year, candidates will complete an additional 10 hours of tasks related to coaching, officiating and administration. Over the course of the two years, it is also expected that the Pre- CIT will remain an active gymnastic participant, completing a minimum of 15 hours of “gymming” time.

    13 year old Pre-CITs MUST complete the program over two full training years. 14 and 15 year old Pre-CITs have the option of completing the program in one or two training years.

    At age-15, they can enter into the adult National Coaching Certification Program.

    Resources from many clubs across the country were compiled, edited and produced by Cathy Haines with assistance from Elisabeth Bureaud.

    This program is voluntary.

    Nice work.

    But it’s only available to Gymnastics Canada clubs, so far as I know.
