The Leadership Academy is a structured programme, designed for young people, to help them gain the necessary skills required to develop as a leader within gymnastics.
The programme encourages the leaders to complete five different ‘topic’ areas:
My Learning: Leaders are tasked with completing a number of different course, both generic and sport specific.
My Development: Leaders are tasked with identifying a mentor and learning from working alongside them.
My Volunteering: Leaders are tasked with volunteering their time at events, and at meetings.
My Future: Leaders are tasked with producing a development plan and completing their goals.
My Projects: Leaders are tasked with identifying their needs, and running a project which benefits them/their club.
Some of the benefits of taking part in a Leadership Academy are that the young leaders will be introduced to the various roles and opportunities within gymnastics, they will stay within the sport for longer, complete courses, socialise, create and run a project and develop their leadership skills alongside many other personal skills. Also there will be rewards given at various stages of the programme which will encourage young leaders to continue to participate.
Gymnasts from the age of 11 can get involved. If you would like to get involved, then please email firstname.lastname@example.org
