General Leader (GL) courses are soon to be conducted country wide. The first set of courses takes place on 22, 23 February 2013, with the second set taking place on 01, 02 March 2013.
The GL course is a beginner level gymnastics course, one which all current gymnastic coaches need to be qualified in. Clubs need to ensure that their coaches are appropriately qualified to coach gymnastics, even at the lowest level.
The GL Course, facilitated by Education and Training specialist Louis Fourie, combines course work with interaction and demonstrative elements. The GL Course teaches gymnastics basics as well as any new methods of training techniques. It is important to try and keep up with the latest coaching techniques.
The course is catered for specific individuals, namely – those whose GL qualification has expired as the qualification is only valid for 4 years; those who are interested in getting involved in gymnastics but have no training in the sport; and those who are currently coaching gymnastics but who have no qualifications.
There will be a follow up Level 1 Courses in April 2013.
