At Penzance Gymnastics Club we run an in-house Leadership programme for aspiring coach’s from age 11yrs upwards.

We have 2 tiers to this system that Leaders progress through to develop their confidence, people-skills and coaching techniques.

If you are interested in gymnastics or coaching sports, please go to our waiting list button at the top of the page and register your interest in becoming part of our Leadership Programme.

Mini Leaders 11-13yrs

Mini Leaders is a programme we have developed for our youngest aspiring coach’s. Our Mini Leaders assist the Coach’s in Recreational Gymnastics sessions by joining in the lead warm ups and cool downs; demonstrating techniques and skills on apparatus; and being a friendly face to talk to!

They also complete a logbook to note down their skills and then have the opportunity when they turn 14yrs old to progress into our Young Leaders programme.

Young Leaders 14-16yrs

Young Leaders is a programme we have developed to continue developing our Mini Leaders and progressing them through to the Coaching pathway.

Our Young Leader’s take on more responsibility in our Recreational & Advanced Recreational classes by leading warm ups/cool downs; demonstrating and coaching skills on apparatus; and take more ownership in classes. Once they turn 16yrs old, we then look to place them on a British Gymnastics Coaching qualification to become a Level 1 qualified Coach and gain paid employment in the club.
