We welcome enthusiastic volunteers aged 14yrs+ into our gym to assist with our coaching sessions. Volunteers are an integral part of our club and we value them as an essential part of our team.
Young volunteer programme
We have a volunteer development programme in place to help our young people progress into gymnastics coaching. Our gymnasts and young people can opt to volunteer in our sessions as a trainee coach from the age of 14.
The programme helps the young volunteer learn about safe practise within gymnastics, to support gymnasts and how to plan and deliver small sections of a session. This is all in preparation for them to progress into the British Gymnastics UKCC coaching scheme when they turn 16. Over the next three years we will be expanding our young volunteer programme through the support of Young start funding.
Our volunteers have the opportunity to assist in weekly training sessions and holiday camps. They also have the opportunity to complete emergency pediatric first aid, Learn to Coach qualification and In Safe Hands. We’re currently developing an awards scheme for our volunteers to complete, recognising them for their commitment to the club.
