ATH Mentorship Curriculum Overview:

The Athlete Training and Health Certified (ATH-C) Mentorship program is an entry level full time paid position that exposes coaches to real world coaching experience across a wide variety of athletes while being enrolled in structured education through 12 monthly modules. The performance coach will learn to bridge the gap between theory and practice through evidence based lectures with self directed learning, collaboration and practical application. Guest lectures are led internally by ATH coaches and externally by experts in the field via video conferencing. The ATH mentorship program offers coveted, full-time, paid positions with an intense structured curriculum designed in collaboration with the world’s leading sports performance institute. Those accepted will learn to bridge the gap between theory and practice through in-depth learnings and practical application. The Mentorship program is broken into four parts.

Part I

Coaching ATHletes (August - November)

All performance coaches will complete the Athlete Training and Health - Certified (ATH-C) internship during part 1 of the ATH-C mentorship. Even if the performance coach has previously completed this internship they will do so again but will be exempt from specific assignments and tasked with additional administrative pedagogical related activities in order to prepare them for teaching the internship during Part 2 of the mentorship. The ATH-C internship consists of 3 modules designed to develop the coach practically, theoretically and professionally to effectively represent an ATH coach. More detailed information related to the ATH-C internship can be found on the ATH website.

Part II

Building Stronger ATHletes (December - February)

During part 2 of the mentorship, coach education will focus primarily on strength related components of athletic performance. Performance coaches should effectively be able to evaluate and plan training across all 5 of ATH’s training strands and demonstrate correct periodization strategies dependent on the level of ATHlete to enhance athletic performance in a safe and effective manner.

Part III

Developing Faster ATHletes (March - May)

During part 3 of the mentorship, coach education will focus on elements relating to plyometrics, linearand multidirectional speed. Performance coaches should be able to assess and develop linear and multidirectional speed though application of proper exercise strategies (cueing, strength, mechanics, etc.) to address individualized flaws.

Part IV

Programming 24 Hour ATHletes (June - August)

During part 4 of the mentorship, coach education will focus on integrating all previous areas of the mentorship into an annual periodized plan. Performance coaches will be assisted by senior coaches incompleting a comprehensive training plan for an ATHlete or team of their choice.
