Leadership Award

The leadership award consists of four modules focusing on the basic skills a leader needs to lead others in any sport or activity with learning delivered within a Gymnastics context. Normally delivered face to face over two days of workshop, the content has been altered in response to COVID-19 and is now offered online through zoom with only one session that is practical in the gym. The award will be followed by club support and an invitation to tap into other parts of the leadership pathway. It may be suitable for those age 12+ who are wanting to develop their leadership skills or any adult who is keen to take on more of a leadership role with their club. It is an accredited programme with Sports Leaders. We have a bank of tutors across the country who are ready to deliver to your club.
