C.J. Keliher accepted into NCCP Level 4 Program
Academy coach C.J. Keliher was recently accepted into Gymnastics Canada’s NCCP Level 4 coaching certification program. This two year program is offered to a very select group of 30 coaches from across Canada, chosen from women’s and men’s artistic gymnastics, trampoline and tumbling, and rhythmic gymnastics.
To be considered for the program, coaches need to be working with national high performance athletes, such as Academy gymnasts Matt Gallant and Scott Chandler. Keliher has coached and competed at numerous Nationals and Canada Games and was honoured in 2010 as Gymnastics PEI’s Coach of the Year.
Graduation from the program allows coaches to travel internationally with Team Canada athletes and is the highest coaching level awarded in the country. Upon completion of the program, Keliher will join an elite group of Island coaches who have earned Level 4 certification, including Academy head coach Jim Rand (gymnastics) and Lewis Page (soccer).
