Get involved. Get qualified. Get ahead.
The Y’s Gymnastics Coaching Mentorship Program is designed to give you a head start in your gymnastics career. In around 12 weeks, you’ll gain valuable on-the-job experience plus an exemption from the Beginner Coach qualification.
You will also have the chance to work with experienced gymnastic coaches and learn how to design and run your own gymnastics class.
By joining us as a volunteer mentee in the Gymnastics Coaching Mentorship Program, you can go on to a promising career in gymnastics.
Once you have completed the program, there is an opportunity for you to continue with the Y in a part-time, full-time or casual role.
