Good place to work if you love martial arts and love teaching
Karate instructor (Former Employee) – Santa Ana, CA – July 23, 2015
A typical day at work is going your location, setting up all your supplies with your parent helpers, then teaching class. I learned to be self-sufficient and confident in teaching kids and adults. I only say my co-workers every 3 months for tournament and they are all fantastic people.
Class Ops-Ship/Receive Supervisor/ Instructor (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – April 10, 2016
I learned about time management and prioritizing to make production happen. Honed organizational and operational skills. Utilized computer for ordering, shipping and receiving of materials. Management did not delegate work properly to ensure productivity. Co workers were enjoyable. I learned I was under utilized.
Coach (Former Employee) – Lafayette, IN – April 7, 2015
A typical day of work consisted of planning routines and piecing music together for performances. I learned a lot about managing big groups of children and keeping their attention. I also learned a lot about organization and the best ways to keep paperwork filed, etc.
Youth Soccer Coach (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – November 17, 2014
worked with great people with similar interests, and I got to spend my weekends playing a game I love and got to share that with kids. It was more work than I realized it would be, but was a great experience.
Dance Instructor (Former Employee) – Santa Ana, CA – October 10, 2013
A typical day of work would consist of me coming in 30 minutes to an hour early to set up all my paperwork and inventory tables (i.e. Sign in sheets, Calenders, Merchandise, etc...). I would wait for everyone to come in and sign up for class and directly handle all transactions between myself and the customers. Then, I would go to teach my class and give out my lessons for my students. After, I would either count all the money from the days work and take inventory records of everything, and keep track of attendance. Lastly, I would make routines in my free time for my following classes the next day.
I Learned how to increase my organizational skills, as well as my direct sales and leadership skills,
The hardest part of the job would have to be putting together the routines for my classes with beginner dancers while still following the companies requirements for competitions.
The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing all my students progress over the months under my leadership. Also, seeing them win at their competitions.
Interview was fun and training provided insite, cant wait to actually teach.
Art Teacher (Current Employee) – Stockton, CA – June 1, 2013
Love the hours, exposes me to what I'm currently studying to be. Though I did not really get to teach the first location assign to me, had facility issues, I still enjoyed getting to know potential clients and students. What is expected of me is not to extraneous, its a little confusing but a veteran instructor of any avail activities this group offers assists you to get the hang on things, or the director personally comes to assist as well.
work schedual, ability to add more hours/locations to work at, comission sale on equipment, veteran intructor or director assists you on what to do
It was so nice to work with children and young adults to defend themselves with mix martial arts. My typical day was working in the evening for about 2-5 hours depending on the demand. I learned many self defense moves, and organization skills. The hardest part was communication between the office and the employees. The best part was the physical activity and enjoyment of doing something I love. My co-workers weren't always the best, but the ones that were nice were amazingly supportive. My superiors were distant but y immediate managers were generally great.
keep active, fun, works with children
office was unresposive and bad communication between employees.
Cheerleading/ Hip Hop Coach (Current Employee) – Independence, MO – April 13, 2013
Although this is a part time job I would not quit this job for anything I am a Cheerleading coach for kids from age 4 and older who are the greatest things on earth. My co-workers are awesome we all love to work with each other and can count on each other when in need of help or advise. I get to teach kids how to dance, have self confidence, and to be who they are. This is another place for where a kid can be a kid.
Young Champions of American is a cheerleading company.. My hobby/extracuricular activites that i enjoy is cheerleading. Working for this company was more like just having fun. I trained, taught, and exemplified discipline through the art of cheerleading. My teams competed 3-4 times a year. My co-workers were very helpful as well as management to make sure routines, music, and skill levels were met. The harderst part of the job is when a cheerleader left after i grew attachement. The best part of the job is seeing the smile of appreciation on a cheerleaders face once the achieved their goal as a team.
no mirco-management, skill building exercises, competition
Martial Arts Instructor (Current Employee) – Wyoming, MI – May 20, 2012
Young Champions is one of the best places for anybody to teach! I enjoy teaching martial arts to younger children because I see what a difference I make! The company treats all of its employees amazingly. This is a great job for anyone if you want to be in control.
As an instructor, you can be in control of what you do and how you would like to do it. I remember growing up under this program and I'm now employed here. If anybody is offered a job through Young Champions, I advise them to take it. You will love working here!
When a problem arises, the company does not support their coaches. They do not provide any type of assistance to help your facility or team succeed. It is all about the money. The parents do not get what they pay for in cheer. I have been in the industry as a cheerleader, coach, and national judge for over 15 years. Now, I see and understand why the company has a huge employment turnover. The company lies and misleads everyone, including the children.
Job Work/Life Balance
Not the ideal company!
Cheer Coach (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – March 12, 2012
This company requires alot of work for very low pay!! You are in charge of all paperwork as well as dealing with parents, as well as running the classes alone. They do not reimburse for gas. I was not pleased because I received a position that I was not originally hired for.
There is only one reason you receive low pay ... that is because you don't have enough students in your class to make it worth your while.
You have to try to build your classes up on your own and then after you build them up, you need to keep your students. You have the tools to do this job but the pay depends on whether or not you can keep your students!
