Using reflection and debriefs to enhance coaching: Wade Gilbert
July 21, 2017
“Why wait for a disaster to have a really open and frank conversation?” Wade Gilbert asked this at the GAIN conference in his presentation on reflection and debriefs for coaches.

Why gymnastics?

Most people don’t know it, but gymnastics isn’t just one sport. It’s a whole range of different types (or ‘disciplines’, as you’ll often hear them called).

The best gymnasts move with incredible strength, control and flexibility. Which means they can perform amazing jumps, tricks, balances and holds.

Is it easy to learn?

You probably already do some basic moves at the moment. Whether that’s bouncing on a trampoline, doing cartwheels, hanging from bars or stretching. Of course, there’s a lot more to it than that. But if you decide to learn, you’ll be supported every step of the way by expert coaches.

 What is FreeStyle Gymnastics (FreeG).

We offer FreeG at both our Wellington and Willand venues. It is especially popular with teenage boys, but many girls prefer it to formal gymnastics. This video shows some of our freestylers in action at a recent camp:

Excelsior and British Gymnastics

Our club is a member of British Gymnastics (BG). This means we provide a safe, friendly environment with professional coaches to help you learn.

BG insists on the highest standard of coach education and the safest environment for all our gymnastics activities.

You don’t have to be a member of our club or BG before arrive for your first session, but if you decide gymnastics is for you there’s an opportunity for you to become a member of our club and BG.

Coaches

Sessions are run by James Marshall, who is a Level 2 coach in general gymnastics.

Alongside Laura Lane, Holly Walker, Tom Trowbridge, Megan Flloyd, Cherie Chambers and Tom Hardy who are volunteer helpers.

Costs

You can try the classes out for £4 per session, up to two sessions. If you then decide that it is for you, you can join the club which is £22 per year and everyone renews on October 1st (BG rule, not ours!)
