We are excited to announce that bookings are now open for our special Olympic edition of the ALTIS Apprentice Coach Program.
In conjunction with our Rio Olympic Games Holding Camp, we have a panel of renowned guest presenters set to speak at what promises to be an incredibly special ACP: Dr John Berardi, Dr Jeremy Koenig, Matt Jordan, Brett Bartholomew and Kelly Starrett.
Our guest presenters will be on-site for 3-5 days each, and ACP participants will enjoy informal shop-talk with all of them, as well as with our on-the-ground ALTIS coaching staff – led by Head Coach, Dan Pfaff. Coach Pfaff is universally respected as one of the premier coach educators in all sport – not just Track & Field … and our ACP has hosted dozens of coaches from multiple sports including American football, Soccer, Rugby, Aussie Rules, Hockey, and basketball. Additionally, we have welcomed dozens more Strength & Conditioning coaches and Therapists.
Perhaps the highlight of this edition of the ACP though, is the unique opportunity to witness first-hand the final preparations of up to 25 Rio-bound athletes before they depart for the Games.
In what promises to be an incredible week of learning, the ACP week will include 6 presentations, each followed by our now famous ‘pool-side chat’ – your opportunity to ask anything and everything of our coaching team and guest presenters: A truly unique experience that won’t be available again for at least another 4 years.
Westin Kierland Resort and Spa will be hosting our ACP dinner, this is our choice hotel in the area should any ACP guests wish to book in directly.

This is what some of our previous guests have had to say on their ACP experience:
“I had the pleasure of attending the Apprentice Coaching Program … it was truly amazing. Dan Pfaff, Stuart McMillan, Andreas Behm, and the team put on a one of a kind opportunity with complete access to all their years of knowledge in the sport of track and field. If you are a coach that wants to truly see a multi-disciplinary approach to the management, preparation, and execution of the coach, athlete, therapist paradigm, this is for you!”
– Jeff Moreno, DPT
“The Apprentice Coach Program is a unique coaching education opportunity that should be a game-changer for anyone involved in sport. The guiding philosophy of the group to share expertise and challenge the status-quo makes for an enjoyable but equally thought-provoking experience. Dan, Stu, Andreas, and the rest of the staff are an impressive coaching team that exudes passion and knowledge in their particular skill-set, leaving you not only motivated to learn more, but to also be a better coach and person.”
– Dr Ian McKeown
