Safety 101 Clinics
As a CCCAM member, you are eligible to receive support from a veteran CCCAM Board member or coach in the form of safety training in stunting. These clinics are designed to teach coaches how to train their athletes and progress properly for safety in stunting. These clinics should be scheduled between June 1 and October 25. Vice-President, Patti Glenn has done the research and designed the program. These are not stunt camps to teach new stunts. These are clinics to help you fix fundamental technique and guide the coach in implementing a safe progression of stunts. If you are interested in scheduling a clinic, please click here to submit your information to Patti so she can match you with a veteran coach in your area.
