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.
Calling it an experience is not meant as marketing hype or
hyperbole. It is truly an experience in learning and discovery. It all starts
with the faculty. From the inception of GAIN I have worked to have a faculty
who are the best at what they do, who not only talk the talk but also walk the
walk. They are not self-promoters and all over the Internet but they know their
stuff and have produced results. I select faculty who are willing to share and
can teach. This year’s faculty really hit the mark in terms of reinforcing the
theme, which was making connections and coaching that matters. Some of them I
have worked with extensively and others I have observed from afar, but the
commonality is their willingness to share their knowledge and their humility. Check
the GAIN Facebook page I will post a brief write-up on each GAIN faculty member
and their presentations at GAIN 2013 go to https://www.facebook.com/pages/GAIN-Network/225083718737
