Club Conference 2011
Our second Regional Club Conference along with the Awards Ceremony took place on Sunday 30th January 2011, in Farnborough. The theme of our Conference was "Building our Gymnastics Future, Together!" and focused on developing and supporting our workforce that is training and coaching all of our gymnasts in the South region. The conference provided ideas and inspiration to develop and market our clubs through a combination of interactive theoretical and practical workshops, which were designed to help our clubs build a sustainable legacy by providing them with some practical and workable case studies.
Linked into the Club Conference, there was an opportunity to thank and reward our clubs and workforce for their dedication and work in development of gymnastics network at our Awards Ceremony. The awards showcased the achievements of our passionate and dedicated workforce, including Coaches, Volunteers, Welfare Officers, Event Organisers, Tutors, Judges and those in education sector.
The Awards ceremony was presented by our Regional Chair - Biz Scales and our BG Development Director - Mark Gannon. Congratulations to all our winners and nominees.
