Floor Manager & Volunteer Workshops
Floor Manager & Volunteer Workshops are presented by Gymnastics WA staff and experienced volunteers to teach you all you need to know about volunteering at Gymnastics WA events and competitions. By the end of the workshop, all attendees will be registered Floor Managers and able to manage the competition floor upon completion of their shadow sessions, where they learn from experienced Floor Managers in a competition setting.
During the workshop, all attendees will be part of a ‘mock competition’ called the Volunteer Spectacular, jumping into the role of coach and athlete while we move through pretend competition rotations. During the Volunteer Spectacular, experienced Gymnastics WA volunteers and staff will explain:
- how to use the audio and scoring systems
- how to manage volunteers
- how to interact with other event personnel
- how to deal with unexpected incidents
- plus everything else that new Floor Managers and volunteers need to know in order to successfully carry out their tasks at Gymnastics WA’s competitions
The workshop will be run in an interactive environment, giving all attendees the chance to gain hands on experience. It is important to note that you do not have to continue with Floor Managing after attending the workshop, and instead you are welcome to volunteer in another role (e.g. Announcer, Scorer, Music Coordinator) with your new found knowledge you have gained.
See below for upcoming workshop dates. All workshops are free of charge.

Club Hosted Floor Manager & Volunteer Workshops
Floor Manager & Volunteer Workshops can now be run within clubs, allowing members the flexibility of attending a workshop whilst their child is at training, or focusing on a particular gymsport rather than attending a generalised workshop. Any workshop hosted by a club and open for other club's members to attend will be posted here. There are currently no club hosted volunteer workshops scheduled.
