Pembrokeshire Special Needs has been awarded Insport Gold Award for their promotion of inclusivity within their club
Pembrokeshire has now joined 6 other gymnastics clubs in Wales that have achieved the Insport Gold Standard Award. The four-tiered (Ribbon, Bronze, Silver and Gold) identification and accreditation process is to show clubs’ commitment to providing and delivering inclusive sport.
With the silver accreditation achieved in December 2018, the club immediately began their journey to Gold. Head Coach, Amy Brock reflect on the build-up to the day:
"Leading up to the day we looked back on all the work undertaken on our journey to Gold and put together a presentation based on our clubs achievements.
It feels amazing to have achieved the award, we feel it is recognition of the hard work we've done within our club - especially as we are the first club to achieve Gold in Pembrokeshire."
So what's next for the club?
"We are looking to move our club forward by ensuring we recruit more volunteers and train level 1 and 2 coaches to increase and sustain our membership numbers."
Welsh Gymnastics could not be more proud of this incredible achievement for such a deserving club - we are positive that this club will continue to grow and thrive as we enter 2020!
