Development Programme

Week of Regional Coach CPD sessions with Lars Norregaard, Denmark National Coach

We have an exciting opportunity for all Teamgym coaches in Scotland at every level to learn from one of the world leading Teamgym coaches from Denmark, Lars Norregaard.  Lars is the current Senior’s coach for Teamgym Denmark and coached many teams who have won European titles.  He has also led the Scottish Teamgym summer camp in 2017 and 2018.

Lars is in Scotland between 19th and 24th November 2018 at various regional venues around Scotland, to enable coaches to access his level of expertise.  Along with the Technical Panel and the Technical Panel Working Group we have developed a timetable for Lars’ time in Scotland as follows:

Monday 19th November  – (West) Irvine Bay (6pm-9pm) – for L1 & L2 coaches (basics)

Tuesday 20th November  – (East) Saltire (6pm-9pm) – for L2 & L3 coaches (competitive level)

Wednesday 21st November  – (Central) Forth Valley (6pm-9pm) – for L3 & L4 coaches (development to performance level)

Thursday 22nd November  – (North) McTaggart Centre, Dundee (6pm-9pm) – L4+ (performance levels)

Saturday 24th November – Technical  Symposium (10am start) at SG Offices, Caledonia House, Edinburgh:

  • Q&A with the GB gymnasts/coaches (post Europeans)
  • a session on filling out floor tariffs - how to fill them in properly with Margaret Kerr, FIG Brevet Judge
  • a session with Chris Short, Scotland's Teamgym National Technical Lead, on how to prepare gymnasts for performance
  • a session with Lars Norregaard on Teamgym in Denmark and also feedback on his week and camps he has attended and where Scotland should go/work on moving forwards

Coaches are invited to bring 1 or 2 gymnasts with them to the sessions led by Lars and the format of each day will be a 6pm start with a theory and practical session, using the gymnasts you bring, finishing at approximately 9pm.

To get the most out of the session coaches can attend the session most relevant to the level they are coaching at, but you are also welcome to the other sessions for CPD.
