BGU FOUNDATIONS QUALIFICATION COURSE FOR COACHES WORKING WITH ATHLETES AGES 3-6

 

 
 
 

For ages 14+. 

 

 

Full course or ages 14+. 12to16 junior coaches course also available.

How do you approach teamwork with athletes who are still developing awareness of those around them? How can you spot a skill safely when an athlete’s muscles and sockets aren’t fully developed yet? These questions and more will be covered in BGU’s newest course: BGU Foundations!

This course provides specialized insight and assistance into coaching athletes between the ages of 3 and 6 years old. In order to create effective class plans and structured activities for athletes at this age, coaches must have a solid understanding of the physical and emotional development that all children go through. BGU Foundations combines a deep dive into the development of younger athletes with applications that assist in the everyday life of coaching, from parent communication to child protection and more. Coaches will be equipped with a number of activities to teach younger athletes, with emphasis on balance and spatial awareness - meaning this course is not just perfect for cheerleading coaches, but can also provide new insights and activities for those working with young athletes in dance, gymnastics and other related sports.

Packed with resources, adaptable activities and tools to take away to your gym, BGU Foundations will leave you feeling confident and ready to teach younger athletes effectively.

BGU Foundations is open to coaches age 14 years plus. For coaches aged 14 & 15, certificates will go live on individuals 16th birthday. (*Please note, By law coaches under the age of 18 years must have an adult in supervision whilst teaching).

What Customers Say About BGU

  • "I attended your course in Essex this weekend and wanted to give some feedback. Myself and the other girls from my team who attended have all cheered for a long time and still learnt a lot of invaluable new skills. The course instructors, Conor and Lisa, were so professional and helpful, as were all of the support staff on hand throughout the two days. I left feeling confident to go and teach the younger members of our programme safely and correctly, and also felt really inspired to improve the way we teach and work with the children, and implement new techniques and really work on the girls' individual progression. Thank you for delivering the training in such an inspiring, clear and motivating way!"

  • "I just wanted to say thank you so much for a fantastic training weekend on the BGU Levels 1&2 Course. I was very impressed with the whole experience, which was professionally run by knowledgeable and experienced coaches. The whole experience was extremely informative; the staff quickly realised that I had no experience in the cheerleading world, and were especially helpful in going over things I didn't quite understand, explaining things further to me, of which I am extremely grateful! I am very excited to implement what I have learnt."

  • "I just wanted to say thank you for my coaching qualification. I coach my old University team - we wouldn't be anywhere if your BGU team hadn't given me the confidence to stand up in front of 44 athletes and coach them this past season. Thank you!"

  • "Thank you once again for a great weekend. I feel re-energised and raring to go! Yet I also know what I need to concentrate on and work on to improve myself as a coach. I really would like to compliment the demo girls who patiently and diligently give up their weekends to help the future coaches and the safe development of the sport. So, thank you once again."

  • "Just wanted to say thank you for the weekend, I really enjoyed it and felt like i learnt a lot from you and the others. Also the stunt teams were brilliant, so well done to them, too."

  • "Building From the Ground Up not only made me a coach but a better cheerleader. The hands-on approach is without a doubt the best way to learn the challenging sport. The course is delivered with an amazing consistency, having attended the Level 1&2 course twice, as a coach myself and bringing my coaches with me. While saying that, the wonderful people who deliver the qualification keep the course up to date with the ever-evolving world of cheerleading. The customer service is excellent and Lisa especially does everything in her power to ensure complete satisfaction. Each instructor has, on both courses, gone above and beyond. Hayden and Conor took time out of their lunches and at the end of the day to go over further questions or demos that we needed. Not only do i trust BGU with my education, I trust BGU in the education of my athletes. All in all the best coaching qualification for the developing cheerleader!"
