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.
I don’t know about you but I don’t have it figured out. I
think one of the biggest challenges in coaching and in life is the challenge of figuring it out. It makes coaching fun. I know there was a time 33
years ago when I thought I had it figured out and what followed was one of the
worst years coaching I have ever had. If you think you have it figured out, you
think you have cracked the code, sit down and get back in touch with reality.
As Gertrude Stein once said “The
answer is there no answer.” Enjoy the process of the challenge and keep
learning and innovating. You probably won't figure it out but the challenge will sustain you.
