Mike Martz, Golf Performance Center @ Whistle Bear, has recently been “Certified” to Coach New Competitors
by the CPGA. At this time there are only 8 Certified New Competitor Coaches in
Canada. The certification process
involves in class sessions as well as the completion of an extensive portfolio
and video submission.
Five outcomes have to be met in order to meet the
certification level. These include planning a practice, providing support to an
athlete in training, analyzing performance, designing a sport program and
managing a sport program.
This certification is the first step in a four step process.
Eventually the final step leads to Coaching Elite Performers in Canada’s quest
to “Own the Podium”. This includes the Canada Games, International competitions and Olympic Games.
