Intro to...Courses

British Gymnastics have worked with members of MY Leadership Academies and the wider gymnastic community to design introductory level courses which introduce Young Leaders to the exciting opportunities within our sport. The content has been designed to be informative and thought provoking and enable the attendee to gain a greater understanding and discover new interests in different areas of gymnastics. 

There are currently two courses in the Intro to... series: Intro to Coaching and Intro to Judging. Both courses cost £25* and the minimum age to attend these courses is 11 years of age. A new course called an 'Intro to Event Volunteering' will be rolled out later this year. 

* this price is a guide and may vary depending on the set up and organisation of the course

Please note: The Intro to… courses are run at clubs that offer the Leadership Academy at different times each year, depending on demand, and cannot be booked on to like other British Gymnastics courses. If you would like to run a course or would like to find out more information about the Intro to… courses, please email
