Welsh Gymnastics is launching a new set of introductory courses called “Intro To” for its members. The courses will be available for young people from the age of 11 years old. 

The new Intro To courses will allow young leaders to get involved in new aspects of gymnastics, and will be split into three sections: 

  • Intro to Coaching
  • Intro to Judging
  • Intro to Event Volunteering

Each course type offers exciting opportunities to gain a greater understanding of the different areas of gymnastics.

Intro to Coaching

This course offers you the exciting chance to begin your coaching journey. You will learn about the fundamental skills of being a coach and how to apply these skills within a gymnastics environment. 

You will learn the roles and responsibilities of a coach, develop a basic understanding of the technicalities of gymnastics, and understand the role of a helper within coaching sessions.

Intro to Judging

This course offers you an insight into the role of a judge. You will learn about the role and responsibilities of a judge, why we judge, and the importance of judging.

You will develop the knowledge to differentiate between basic skills, record and evaluate errors, and review performances.

Intro to Event Volunteering

Intro to Event Volunteering offers you the exciting chance to begin a volunteering journey.

You will learn about the different types of events to get involved with, the roles that are available - and how you can be involved in supporting the continued growth of our sport and enable those who want to take part. 


These courses are booked directly via individual clubs, rather than through the Welsh Gymnastics website. Courses cost £25 per candidate, per course, and are 3 hours each.

If you would like to run a course at your club or if you would like to find out more information about the Intro To courses, please email raer.theaker@welshgymnastics.org
