CERTIFIED COACHING PROGRAM INCOME AND COSTS
The apprenticeship program offers upward mobility and a potential coaching career path.
With each level the total income as well as experience of the coach rises. A greater take home percentage is awarded to those coaches with more tenure and athletes.
Figures below are sustained athletes and may be more depending on the number and mix of athletes you are working with.
Level I coaches may only work with a maximum of 5 athletes and level II up to 15 sustained athletes at one time. Level III can coach 20+ depending on their career and life goals.
Proficient coaches with experience and accelerated training may work with more athletes on an approved case by case basis.
If there are no athletes to coach, the program fee is $600/month. (Two athletes sustained in coaching per month is break even to pay for the apprenticeship certification program.)
