WWPIS are delighted to announce a partnership with South Essex Gymnastics club, one of the leading gymnastics clubs in the United Kingdom.
With a lot of work already taken place behind the scenes including the generation of a website platform and the creation of specific resources for gymnastics parents and coaches the partnership will now see live and virtual webinars delivered within the club on an annual basis for club management, coaches and parents starting with a day of live workshops at the club at the end of December.
The club which has such a rich history of high-quality coaching and a production line of top gymnasts including Max Whitlock have been so proactive in recognising the vital role that parents play in the sporting journey and the importance of them feeling supported, informed and empowered to have a voice in the process.
With gymnasts committing a huge amount of time from a young age into specific programmes and spending a lot of time in the gym with coaches this support is absolutely vital if we want to see everyone thrive and gain the most from the sporting journey both inside and outside of the gym.
CEO Gordon MacLelland said, ‘Gymnastics has gone through a really tough period and needs to rebuild trust in a lot of communities and countries. We are so excited to be supporting South Essex Gymnastics Club with this programme. I am particularly grateful to Scott Hann MBE who has been such a large driving force behind this project and not only are we excited about working at South Essex but have been blown away from the interest we have had from gymnastic communities all over the world. We will be announcing further partnerships in the coming weeks.’
