The Club's Coaches

All of our coaches have been trained on British Gymnastics courses, and undergo DBS checks to ensure their suitability for working with children.   They are all volunteers and consequently attend training sessions because they enjoy doing so, not because they are paid to be there.

We encourage our older gymnasts to assist the qualified coaches, and many are sponsored by the club to attend BG training courses prior to taking exams to qualify, initially, as Assistant Coaches.   The majority of our current coaches are former club gymnasts.  Several of our coaches are also BG qualified judges.
