Coaches help athletes as they prepare for new challenges. Coaches are also there for athletes as they learn to manage their emotions through victory and defeat. Good coaches can have a positive impact on our athletes’ lives. Our coaching program establishes the expert knowledge coaches need to help athletes achieve their goals. Additionally, it extends beyond the course to ensure our athletes have the best experience while competing in ninja.
We offer three different levels of coaching certification. Our Floor Cert is our entry level certification. This program focuses primarily on abuse prevention and understanding the fundamentals of ninja. Our assistant and head instructor certifications dive deeper into conditioning, obstacle techniques and class management required to be an effective obstacle coach.
Each program builds on the knowledge gained from the prior certification. The programs must be completed in order. All three certifications can be completed online.
