Every sporting team has a team of coaches to guide them. Bridgewell employees, family and friends volunteer countless hours of time to coach, train, educate and cheer on the athletes. Coaches are required to undergo a national CORI and comprehensive training in protective behaviors, concussion awareness, SOMA orientation, sport specific training and unified sports training. Coaches help athletes discover their physical skills, self-worth, courage, and capacity to grow.
