WWPIS are excited to announce a new partnership with Gymnastics Australia. This new partnership will see the whole WWPIS programme rolled out across the country in both recreational and performance environments.
All clubs, parents and coaches will be given access to a customised Gymnastics Australia platform which includes all of the exclusive WWPIS content featuring over 250 blogs, videos, podcasts and infographics.
Included in the platform are two of our main resources: Great Sports Parenting and Engage.
Workshops and webinars will be delivered across the country to bring these resources to life and it is hoped that the project will create a real sense of partnership with clubs, coaches and parents working effectively together to create the best possible environments for young gymnasts, putting them at the heart of the sporting experience.
Also available for purchase for clubs and parents is the ‘Our Sporting Journey’ series for Under 5, Under 7 and Under 9 gymnasts which incorporate two gymnastic years in each book.
The ‘Our Sporting Journey’ is a series of interactive books for children, putting them at the heart of the sporting experience, allowing them to have plenty of fun, grow as people both on and off the field and immerse themselves in their sporting experience as they progress through their sporting journey.
The books all have plenty of activities for children, encourage positive interaction between children and their parents, require plenty of parental involvement whether that be in having positive conversations, playing in the garden or helping to stick in the pictures that will allow everyone to build up a memory book that will last a lifetime.
Gymnastics Australia, General Manager, Member Services, Bradley Low said the partnership is yet another important step in the organisation’s ongoing commitment to ensuring members can safely enjoy their sport.
‘With 97.95% of our national membership under the age of 18, Gymnastics Australia is excited to partner with Working with Parents in Sport, an organisation that aims to empower clubs, coaches and parents to work together to support and encourage a safe and welcoming environment for young people,’ said Low.
Gordon MacLelland(CEO of WWPIS) said,
‘It is really exciting to be working with Gymnastic Australia and see the passion and determination shown by the National Governing Body to create the best possible environments for young gymnasts and their support networks. We are looking forward to being part of this incredible project and can’t wait to see the positive impact it has on the whole sport over the coming years.’
