We have over 30 staff employed at the Airdrie Edge Gymnastics Club including coaches as well as administrative employees. All of our coaching staff are trained and certified through the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) as well as in accordance to the standards set by the Alberta Gymnastics Federation (AGF).

Coaches must attend multiple courses at each level and complete a rigorous practical component to become certified.  Our coaches take First-Aid training annually and are also certified in Respect-in-Sport and Making Ethical Decisions courses. The coaching certification processes progression can be seen below. Some of our most experienced coaches will have other versions of the highest levels of certification (for example, “Trampoline 4” instead of “Competitive Development Trampoline Advanced”). This is because these coaches were certified or trained under an older version of the course.

For each of the courses below, a coach becomes trained first, then can become certified after further assessment from AGF or NCCP.

ActiveStart: Certification tailored to pre-school aged gymnasts.

Progression: ActiveStart has only one coaching level.
