Hawth Academy

Hawth Gymnastics offers our younger adults (age 12 +) the opportunity to become part of our club structure in many different ways

Intro Courses: British Gymnastics Programme of Workshops:

  • Intro to Volunteering
  • Intro to Coaching

With all four workshops the learners will achieve a First 4 Sport level two award in leadership through gymnastics. Learners must be 14 to be eligible for the First 4 Sport award but can attend the course from age 12.

Proficiency Award Coach: British Gymnastics Level 0 Coaching Award:

This practical course teaches young coaches to lead warm-ups and assist other coaches to deliver and assess the British Gymnastics Proficiency awards.

Ongoing Opportunities

Coaching: working alongside our qualified coaches to learn the basics of coaching

Volunteering: at club / county / regional and national events. This includes jobs such as setting up / providing refreshments / registration / door entry etc.

If /when they want to, our academy coaches can progress to a British Gymnastics Level One coaching course with the expert guidance from our mentor coaches. Attendees must be 16 to do this course which consists of a three full days of learning, a log book and a practical assessment.
