Our purpose built facility is one of the best centres in the country. In the last five years hosting national junior and Senior boys training camps including teams from Canada, Australia, Great Britain leading up to London 2012, also the Japanese Trampoline squad prior to 2012. We are a genuine community run club, which caters for all levels of gymnastic/ Trampoline related activities from babies through to adults and top competitive athletes.

Currently this is a part time post however, with the correct candidate we at Waveney Gymnastics Club would be happy to expand this to a full time position.
We are looking to appoint an energetic, enthusiastic coach to join the team, where the post will involve working with our successful development squad.
The club has a competitive pay structure related to the qualifications and experience of the individual coaches. Opportunities for further development and attendance on appropriate course are available and negotiable.

Starting date would be as soon as the correct candidate becomes available.
Paul & Jack have established the following provisional dates for regional squad 2014, selection criteria to follow soon.
Remember that these days are at least as much about developing coach skills as they are performers, so even if you don’t think you will have eligible performers please do put the dates in your diaries.
At the Regional Development Squad on Sunday Jack Kelly introduced a range of drills intended to ensure that Back/Back and Back/Front somersault links are developed cleanly and to best technical ability, as Jack says:
These are the worksheets used at the last Eastern Squad and I hope they will be of continuing benefit to coaches. It was never envisaged that the whole list of drills would be completed during the squad session as there is no point on moving to the next drill before the previous one has been mastered. My advice is that these progressive lists are used during club training with the aim of focussing on one drill at a time and perhaps completing the programme over a period of months. I am only too well aware that there are many other things you have to work on but a ‘little and ofte’n approach to these drills can bring long term benefits to overall performance. Don’t hesitate to contact me if further clarification is needed.
These drills are repeated here.
Below is the confirmed list of attendees at the Regional Squad being held at Brentwood Trampoline Club between 10am – 3pm on Sunday 17th March (the wearing of shamrocks is optional 😎 ).
Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on your perspective, owing to available numbers at Fig and Nat C there will be no wildcard spaces available at this squad although, coaches, we do still expect testing results for those who have attended previously.
Please note that Jack & Paul may have to impose further selection criteria either for the remaining Squads in May and June or from the onset of next season.
VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE:
Clubs without attendees are welcome to send coaches and those on the development pathway towards becoming one. In fact, the more coaches attending the happier Jack & Paul will be!

Welcome to the first Squad of 2012 and congratulations on achieving the criteria for selection.
