Learn to coach

Our learn to coach is an introductory award which is aimed at people starting their coaching journey.

The main focus of this course is to emphasise basic movement skills and physical preparation activities which are transferable across each gymnastics discipline. It also introduces the "how to coach" skills. The course is an introductory award not a formal qualification, therefore does not give the coach any formal responsibilities in the gym and they should be supervised at all times, however it does give coaches all the right tools to begin coaching as a helper. 

The course cost £45
