For a new coach

Thinking about a coach accreditation?


With an increasing number of participants of all ages and abilities being drawn to the sport of Gymnastics, more coaches are required across all levels. As a coach you have a key role to play in helping participants develop through gymnastics. Coaches also have a major influence over participants' enjoyment of gymnastics.

It is essential that coaches provide participants with the best possible gymnastics experience. Ensuring that you implement sound coaching practices and ethics is vital to the continued development of gymnastics and sport in general.

Undertaking education and training as a coach is an important first step to ensure that you are on the right track in your coaching. The Gymnastics Australia Coach Education Framework provides training for coaches at a variety of levels across a range of Gymsports.
