Scarborough Gymnastic Academy’s next generation of coaches have made the grade.

Youngsters Ellis Miller, Coral Rose, Caitlin Frith and Alice Morbey have all completed and passed their first gymnastic coaching qualification.

Gymnastics offers many valuable experiences and opportunities for gymnasts and participants.

The sport requires people with the desire and motivation to make a real difference - by choosing to coach.

British Gymnastics offers a comprehensive range of opportunities that will enhance knowledge and understanding at every level.

There are many routes to become a coach; as an enthusiastic parent, as a gymnast, as a teacher, as a young leader, through the BAGA My Academy Programme or simply someone inspired to become involved and to make a real and positive difference.

A great starting point for a coaches career is the Proficiency Coaching award.

This qualification is based on the BAGA Core Proficiency Award Scheme.

It gives the coach a sound grounding in some of the essential and fundamental movement skills of gymnastics to enable them to deliver effective, safe and inspiring gymnastics programs for the participants.

SGA coach Evy Walker said “We are very proud of the four newly- qualified proficiency coaches.

“The coaches have been very committed and worked really hard to complete the qualification.

“Well done from everybody at the club.”
