Award Scheme Coaching Fundamentals Proficiency

Award Scheme Coaching Fundamentals Proficiency

This course will qualify you to teach our Fundamentals Proficiency Award Scheme within a club or leisure centre environment. 

Award scheme coaching is a great way to get involved with coaching gymnastics, even if you are new to the sport. You get to support early years participants as they experience gymnastics for the first time. You can deliver fun and engaging gymnastics through detailed workcards, which include exciting themed activities, songs and counting games for participants to enjoy. You get to work with both female and male participants, ranging from six months to school age.

Many of our award scheme coaches are parents, teachers or gymnasts.
