[09.09] No more young coaches at RNCS

Three weeks before the admission exam at Romanian National Coach School, only one candidate have applied for one of the six places available.

The exams starts at the end of this month, so there is still (hope and) a possibility to apply. At athletics, there are six places and 70 candidates , same for soccer. For former gymnasts, this school is a good opportunity to continue their careers as a gymnastic coach. The exam is not so difficult for a good athlete, the schedule is flexible (only few weeks courses each semester), and in two years the qualification will let the candidate to apply for any opening position as a coach. And there are plenty of opening position around the country, since many former coaches has left for West, getting better paid jobs.

No hard choices, when making an option being a coach with a salary between $150 (in Romania) to $2000-$4000 (in Western Europe or U.S.A.).

"A lot of gymnastics clubs have asked former retired coaches to come back for training. Many clubs looks now like retirement houses or 'holyday with grandma' places. Many, too many young or middle age coaches have left the country, due to miserable salaries they were given at clubs. That 15% payment for the coaches which have had discovered the Olympic champions is good, a first step, but can not replace a decent salary, which we need most"-said this morning a coach, interviewed in Bucharest by (for obvious reasons, he asked us to keep his name out of story).
