Are you an Accredited Gymnastics Coach?

KIDDO accredited gymnastics coach, Amanda Edwards, recently reflected on her progress as a coach since completing the course.

"The KIDDO education program was really insightful as a coach, and there are so many beneficial resources to make use of. It has been really good to see the confidence growing in the children after delivering the Gym Warriors program at Bloom Early Education in Yanchep and Jindalee. The kids have learnt how to move their body's in new ways whilst having so much fun!"

Would you like access to
free professional development and earn two updating points online? Maybe you’re looking for additional coaching opportunities during the day?

new partnership with The University of Western Australia’s (UWA) KIDDO Program teaches children physical literacy and gets kids active. Based on the latest research from UWA, the program upskills our accredited Gymnastics coaches to deliver a program that develops children’s fundamental movement skills such as running, jumping, catching, throwing and balancing.

Thanks to Healthway and Gymnastics WA, the 3-hour online training is free of charge (RRP $199.00) for our accredited Gymnastics coaching community and upon completion, coaches will receive a KIDDO Certificate of Physical Literacy. Coaches will then have the skills, knowledge and resources to further enhance your coaching skills! Spots are limited to 150 places!

If you’re eager for more coaching opportunities, upon completion of the KIDDO training, y
ou’ll be ready to start delivering Gym Warriors sessions in ECECs on behalf of Gymnastics WA. Programs will run during the day to avoid impeding with club commitments and give you more opportunities to coach and teach what you love. Teach diverse age groups, implement new skills and provide a pathway for children back to your local Gymnastics club!

Gym Warriors Program Details:

  • Duration: 6 weeks, once per week for 45 minutes per session;
  • We contract coaches for a minimum of 2 hours so centres can run two sessions back-to-back (eg. Toddler room followed by the Kindy room);
  • Gym Warriors t-shirt supplied;
  • Gym Warriors equipment kits, supplied by Gymnastics WA are available to borrow subject to availability or equipment can be borrowed from the local club.
