Gymnastics Sports Coach Development


In partnership with the University of Ulster and supported by the Irish Sports Council and Coaching Ireland, Gymnastics Ireland is proud to present the GymEDGE Sports Coach Development Programme.

The programme involves a series of workshops, using core fundamental gymnastics skills and training techniques to assist coaches to build the “complete athlete or player”, giving athletes the “the edge”.
