Advanced Coaches Courses

Are you planning on attending any of the upcoming MAG, WAG or TRP Advanced Face to Face Coaches Courses? PLEASE NOTE...

GQ strongly recommends that potential candidates have all their projects uploaded to their LMS profile for marking 2 weeks before these courses close for enrolments. Projects go directly to Gymnastics Australia who send these to external markers. It often takes up to two weeks for your projects to be marked. Candidates will only be able to enrol into the face to face coaches course once all prerequisites are complete, uploaded, marked and approved

THEREFORE….

If you are planning to attend the TRP Advanced  Coaches Course on the 10th & 11th August we strongly advise that you have all your projects uploaded to your LMS profile by Tuesday, 16 July . You will then need to ensure that you have enrolled into the face to face course by Tuesday, 30 July.
OR
If you are planning to attend the MAG/WAG Advanced  Coaches Course on the 31st August & 1st September we strongly advise that you have all your projects uploaded to your LMS profile by Tuesday, 30th July . You will then need to ensure that you have enrolled into the face to face course by Tuesday, 13th August.

What are the prerequisites for the MAG/WAG/TRP Advanced Coaches Course?

- Advanced MAG/WAG/TRP Online Coaches Course
- Physical Preparation Project
- Annual Seasonal Plan Project
- Self-Reflection Project

Handy hint…Start the physical preparation project first! You will need to devise a physical preparation test, test a group of athletes, wait 4 weeks, test them again and then report on your findings. Use your 4 week waiting period to work on your additional projects.
