SGA Appoints Official Trainer
We're pleased to announce that Heather Hanenberg, one of our most dynamic, popular and effective coaches, has been appointed to be SGA's official instructor trainer. Heather will be responsible for the floor training of all our new instructors at all our sites.
SGA's instructors almost always have a great deal of personal experience in gymnastics but they come with a wide variety of teaching backgrounds. Since they were themselves intensively trained in gymnastics, usually at one gym under one coach, they have at least one way of doing things. Our new trainer will show them the "SGA Way" and also show them the wide variety of background tasks involved in training gymnastics (safety, developmental physiology, kinesthetic development stages, learning styles, station setup, supervision of gymasts (Never let them out of your line of vision!!), progressions, equipment configuration, etc.).
Heather will need to be creative. Once we started listing all the things we wanted in a trainer and in training, the list got very, very long. Heather will need to prune and elaborate as necessary but, being the force that she is, we're confident she's the one for the job! You may not see her at this since most of the work will be in the background but, hopefully, you'll notice the impact of her work with our instructors.
