In addition to these technical development opportunities, we will be running a coaching symposium over two days in January 2016 at the British Gymnastics National Headquarters. This is a brand new event specifically created for coaches at the start of a gymnasts journey and will offer a range of technical and non-technical education sessions. More information about the 2016 Trampoline Coaching Symposium will be circulated in the coming months.
