Coach & Compete Gymnastics in Auckland
from £1295 GBP
to £2295 GBP
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).What will I do
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.
