New sport leaders

Lucy, Lucy, Evie & Sophie

Well done and welcome to our newly qualified sport leaders.

Lucy, Sophie, Lucy and Evie have been helping out in gym classes for a while and took the plunge and completed the Welsh Gymnastics Sport Leader course.

The online section took place on Thursday which they all passed to go on to the practical work on Sunday.

Sport leaders are valuable members of the coaching team, supporting coaches and can run warm ups, cool downs and basic strength and flexibility in class. They are also role models for the younger gymnasts.

Many of our sport leaders go on to complete the Women’s Artistic Level 1 Coaching award and become fully qualified coaches.

Well done to all the girls.
