Brief Description of Event:


GymSTART Teachers Workshop

GymSTART Teachers Workshop is a programme designed to drive participation in the school setting by creating a safe, progressive & fun environment for all, from teachers through to students.


This is a 4-hour practical based workshop based around the primary PE curriculum (Gymnastics).

The workshops touches on all aspects of fundamental gymnastics including; jumping & landing, rolling, balancing, partner work, hand apparatus work, gymnastics-based warmup and cooldowns, and well as discussing key topics with teachers such as the barriers to teaching gymnastics, safety and use of equipment. This workshop is usually run over one x 4-hour block, but where possible we can often accommodate 2 x 2-hour blocks – this is on a workshop by workshop basis.



GymEDGE Workshop

GymEDGE is a sports coach development programme that uses core fundamental gymnastics skills and training techniques to build the complete athlete or player. The workshop is very interactive, giving participants lots of practical ways to enhance coaching sessions and make them safer and more enjoyable for children.


This 6-hour workshop focuses on the Fundamental Movement Skills of Gymnastics and making these skills accessible for all coaches to incorporate their coaching sessions, no matter what the sport. It is practical based, focusing on the benefits of Gymnastic FMS for all sports.


The workshop is certified through Sport Ireland Coaching and Gymnastics Ireland, and the coaches will receive a level 1 CDPI qualification from Sport Ireland Coaching.
