All of our Coaches are fully accredited and are State and National qualified in the disciplines they teach (or are in the process of gaining accreditation). Accreditation is through the Australian Coaching Council’s National Coaches Accreditation Scheme (NCAS). Coaches who are in training are under the supervision of a qualified coach. Some of our coaches also hold tertiary qualifications. Accreditation procedures also require that coaches hold a current Senior First Aid certificate (or equivalent) and Positive Notice Blue Card (Working with Children Card). It is a requirement of employment with Gladstone Gymnastics that coaches participate in regular in-house training sessions as well as attend workshops and courses throughout the year. Many of our younger coaches possess high levels of up to date technical expertise in gymnastics as a result of many recent years of intensive training as competitors.
