Demonstrators

GymSports NZ encourages, where possible, for coaches to bring their own athlete to GymSchool so as much hands-on learning practice may be gained. GymSports NZ will also organise demonstrators, but it is good for coaches to practice skills/drills with the gymnasts they will be working with. There is no fee for gymnasts to attend with coaches, but clubs/gymnasts will be responsible for any travel and accommodation costs. All gymnasts must be named prior to GymSchool.

Observers

Only registered participants will have access to the courses.  Anyone who is not registered as a course participant should enroll in the Coaching workshops. Many of the workshops double as course modules.
