Coach and compete in gymnastics at a top club in Auckland! Work with children of all ages and work with excellent coaches.

Gymnastics is a fairly big sport in New Zealand and the club we work with is one of the best in Auckland where they have a large variety of events and disciplines available for you to coach and compete in. This is a Coach, Train and Play project. In other words, after working with a number of juniors at the club, you'll also have the opportunity to train yourself at the club and if you are there during the season you'll have the opportunity to test your gymnastics skills against the Kiwis (if you're there during event season). You'll work with children across various age groups and will assist the head coaches for each particular event. This will give you good experience and a good insight into a variety of gymnastics events. Also you'll be able to improve your coaching skills and learn from the highly qualified and experienced coaches at the clubs.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

You'll work as a coach at a gymnastics club in the city of Auckland. The gymnastics club that we work with have a variety of ages that attend and you will be working with children across various age groups and different levels of ability, from beginners through to national gym level. You'll assist the head coaches for each particular event. This will give you good experience and a good insight into a variety of gymnastics events. On this project you will be able to improve your coaching skills and learn from the highly qualified and experienced coaches at the clubs. There may also be the opportunity to work with a number of school groups that use the gymnastics club.

The club have a variety of different gymnastics events and groups, including: • Kindy Gym (2-5 year olds) • School gymnastics • General Gymnastics (recreational 5 - 12 year olds) • Trampolining • Recreational Gymnastics • Men’s Competitive Gymnastics • Women’s competitive gymnastics • Teen Gym (13 - 16 year olds) • Rhythmic Gymnastics

You'll work from Monday to Friday with some optional coaching on the weekend. As this project is very flexible, you may wish to coach on the weekend instead and have 2 days off in the week. No qualifications are required for this project but it would be best if you were a gymnast or ex gymnast and had coaching/training and competed within gymnastics.
