Here is what previous Interns have said about the program:
The opportunity to work with real members and help them achieve goals is an overwhelmingly rewarding experience. (Thats why we all want to be coaches in the first place!) In addition to the "learning by doing" structure, the program encourages (and requires) several forms of continuing education to broaden our knowledge of the many aspects of coaching. Additionally, since the Senior, Pro and Premier CTS Coaches work with athletes at the highest levels in many different sports, they serve as a tremendous resource for developing coaches. The wealth of knowledge from the higher level coaches is easily accessible and not only helps ensure we have the right answers, but also provides another great learning/mentoring opportunity.
The CTS Internship program is a highly interactive and multifaceted position which incorporates excellent continuing education with hands-on and Internet-based coaching application.
