Women's Gymnastics

24th-26th November 2016

Gymnastics NSW is excited to have secured a number of high calibre guest presenters for the Women’s Gymnastics component of the Building for Tomorrow, 2017 Gymsport Clinic! This is certainly an educational and professional development opportunity not to be missed with the wealth of knowledge and experience on offer as part of the 2017 Gymsport Clinic.

The Women’s gymnastics component of the clinic will take place over three days with coach lectures taking place on the Friday and practical sessions as well as lectures available on the Saturday and Sunday.

We are very pleased to have a large number of topics being covered during the event. We encourage participants to attend as many of the lectures/sessions as possible to gain maximum benefits from the wealth of knowledge as there will undoubtedly be a flow through of information throughout the duration of the three days.
