ATH Internship Curriculum Overview

Athlete Training and Health offers two forms of internship opportunities ATH Volunteer (ATH-V) Internship and ATH Certified (ATH-C) Internship. The ATH internship program offers 12 weeks of superior curriculum developed in partnership with the world’s leading sports performance institute. We are dedicated to training the next generation of performance coaches, leveraging the most forward-thinking methodologies and practices in the world. Each applicant will have the opportunity to choose what internship they wish to pursue:

Participants of the ATH-V internship are required to work 20-30 scheduled hours per week and can voluntarily participate in all education modules and topics. Upon completion of the ATH-V Internship, applicants can apply to complete the ATH-C Internship in a paid or unpaid capacity dependent on performance.

 

Participants of the ATH-C Internship will be required to work a scheduled 30-40 hours per week with mandatory attendance required during module overviews, weekly topics and will be continually assessed on a competency based model. Upon completion of the ATH-C Internship successful applicants may apply to ATH’s partner University, Auckland University of Technology for Postgraduate Masters Credit. Upon successful completion of the ATH-C Internship, applications may be considered for available part-time on or off site assistant performance coach positions or upcoming full time ATH-C Mentorship performance coach positions.

MODULE I

THE ART OF COACHING

The first module of the internship will increase the interns’ hands on coaching experience. All interns will be exposed to different coaching environments and should effectively be able to assist performance coaches in every offering of the Student and Forever ATHlete programs by the end of module 1. The learning emphasis will focus on ups killing coaches both practically and theoretically on warm ups, cool downs, progressions and regressions for plyometric, speed and strength exercises.

MODULE II

ENHANCING ATHLETIC CAPABILITIES

The second module of the internship will increase the interns’ ability to assess, interpret and prescribe exercise in line with the ATH training philosophy for all aspects of the Student and Forever ATHlete program as it pertains to warm up, speed agility and quickness (SAQ) and strength related activities. As interns show increased proficiency in both their understanding of the curriculum and implementing it in their coaching, they will have increased opportunities to lead more of the training sessions.

MODULE III

DEVELOPING A PROFESSIONAL COACHING BRAND

The third module of the internship focuses on building the interns professional portfolio. Specific professional activities such as reviewing each intern's resume and cover letters, facilitating off-site visits and guest speakers will help to promote networking and industry exposure. The internship will conclude with a final reflective presentation on a topic of their choice approved by a senior coach to aid the interns presentation and communication skills.
