“It’s been so much fun! They introduced so many activities and it’s a great way for me to keep fit and gain experience while working with lots of children. I would recommend this course for students studying education or in the field of sport”

We did different skills and also how to spot children in gymnastics. I learned how to spot and assist the children safely and I thought this was a really great way to teach because you can be more involved in their learning.

“The workshop was about teaching kids how to do gymnastics from a beginner perspective. This programme is absolutely essential for anyone wanting to learn and/or teach children how to learn basic gymnastics skills. It also enables you to teach/coach in many other sports as well as it encompasses the fundamental core movements of locomotion, jumping, rotating, landing, balancing and hand-eye co-ordination.
For me the workshop taught me how to teach basic skills progressively- and I believe it is absolutely essential for anyone who wants to teach basic gymnastics skills.”
John Masilo, Springbok Tumbler, Tumbling Coach
I highly recommend this course for many reasons – in particular for its applicability to developing the same neural pathways young children need for learning mathematical and reading- and for the safety of our children.
