Ways to Help
Parents, Coaches, Helpers

There are lots of ways parents, former gymnasts and other supporters can get involved. From helping out around the club, doing a bit of cleaning or maintenance, helping with fundraising or taking the step into coaching or judging, 

GET INVOLVED

Our club is run by volunteers, so any  support you can offer is greatly appreciated

  • Are you handy with a set of tools or a paint brush? Our building always needs some TLC, so any time you can spare would be much appreciated.

  • Spring Clean and general cleaning duties. Help us keep our gym clean and tidy for your daughter. Even 15 minutes with the vacuum makes a difference.

  • Fundraising is a major part of running a club, from applying for grants, organising events or even baking some cakes to sell, all help to raise money for new equipment

  • Could you help with some simple admin, help take payments at the start of term, join our committee or attend the AGM.​

Interested in Coaching or Judging?

Parent helpers and former gymnasts are ideal candidates to help out in a session. You can try out coaching alongside one of our coaches, and if you like it, you will have the opportunity to train up and get qualified

Both coaching and judging gives parents a great insight into the world of gymnastics, how the skills are achieved and how criteria and deductions are applied

As well as coaching there is the option to train as a judge. This role is ideal for those who can't volunteer on a regular basis but can make it to some of the competitions. The first qualification is Club Judge, which would mean you would mark gymnasts alongside another more experienced judge at competitions.

All our volunteer coaches and judges are DBS checked (Disclosure Barring Service) and are registered with British Gymnastics as a member. This entitles you to BG insurance to coach/judge in our club. 

If you are willing to make a commitment to coach/judge on a regular basis then the club will also fund training courses for you provided by the national governing body - British Gymnastics

You can find out alot more about coaching on the BG website here
