The Gymnastics Excel Programme is to support coaches through the provision of FREE clinics and coach education sessions specifically focussed on helping them to develop talented young gymnasts. There are still numerous Women's Artistic Excel clinics still available with plenty of space for coaches at all levels.
This is your chance to work alongside some of Britain’s best, including GB Junior National Coach Nick Ruddock, Liz Kincaid - coach to double Olympian Imogen Cairns and Sadie Makinson – Brevet Judge and coach to European Silver medallist Jocelyn Hunt.
The focus of these sessions will be on developing sound basic techniques of key elements in gymnastics performance paired with offering philosophies on fundamental coaching and training principles.
