The Functional Path is a path that had been traveled many times before but had fallen out of use in favor of smoother paved roads that promised faster and easier results. Seeking to follow and better define the functional path is a continuing journey, fortunately it is a journey that many have traveled before. Functional Path training is getting back to the basics of movement. It is learning to tune into the body and it’s inherent wisdom to produce rhythmic flowing movement.
The mission of this program is to develop a cadre of experts to define the field of Athletic Development by educating professionals in foundational principles and methodology. Apprentorship = Apprenticeship + Mentorship, combines the features of both into a unique interactive blend of theory and practice in a five-day residential coaching school. This is an opportunity to observe, question, and explore the application of the Gambetta Method - Systematic Sport Development Model of training and injury rehabilitation.
As coaches we all do stuff. There is stuff all over the place. Much of the stuff of training is free on YouTube. I have learned over the years
that some stuff is better than other stuff. As I look around me at other
coaches I see them also doing stuff, some of their stuff looks like my stuff
and some it is very different.I also know that some is junk and some stuff is precious. Does the stuff we do make a difference. Is your
stuff better than my stuff?Given
that we all do stuff what is the difference maker? Well here is it is – no
secret just common sense - if I know why I do my stuff then I have a
significantly better change of making my stuff work with my athletes. Wait it
gets better, if I really understand who to do the stuff with and when to do it
then I am really in the hunt. The bottom line is that to make your stuff work
know why, who to use it with, and then when to use it.
