The Squat Coaching Development Camp is designed to help guide you in the process of developing your coaching skills with the help of Starting Strength Seminar Staff Coaches. The camp is intended for prospective Starting Strength Coach candidates at any level of their development - whether just starting out as a coach or ready for the platform evaluation. Space is limited to 8 participants to ensure lots of interaction among the participants and staff.
During the squat coaching camp, we’ll take an intensive look at the how and why of the squat teaching method, we’ll discuss coaching and what it takes to become a better coach, and spend lots of time on the platform where you’ll get real-time feedback on your coaching of fellow participants. You’ll leave the camp with a better understanding of your strengths and weaknesses as a barbell coach and where you are in terms of coaching according the Starting Strength Coach standard.
You will act as both a lifter and a coach during this camp. Proper equipment including weightlifting shoes, a lifting belt, and appropriately stretchy pants or shorts is required for all participants.
