Well done to our coaches Helen and Julie who passed their General Gymnastics Level 2 Qualification. Here, Helen describes more about the course which started in March with four days at Ynys Mon Gymnastics Club in Holyhead…
We learnt how to improve our coaching skills and techniques, as well as how to organise and run classes safely.
The next three months were spent completing our logbooks and being mentored whilst practising what we’d learnt.
Last week, we had our final assessment which consisted of running a class and coaching gymnasts whilst being observed.
We also had two tricky exam papers. We were both really nervous and didn’t want to let ourselves or the club down.
Thankfully, after a stressful three hours, we both passed and we are now fully fledged level 2 coaches.
We’re both over the moon, relieved and a bit proud of ourselves!
Thanks to our fellow coaches and mentors for their help and support and our lovely gymnasts who were great and easy to coach.
And thanks to Mr Buckley and head coach Ceri for putting us forward for the qualification and motivating us throughout.
