Advanced Spotting Logbook Workshop

26 May 2019 - Beaudesert Gymnastics Club

This workshop is aimed at coaches who are working towards gaining their advanced coaching accreditation. Coaches are provided with practical experience in spotting skills listed in the advanced spotting logbook, led by an experienced presenter.

This workshop provides an opportunity for coaches to have their spotting logbook signed-off by the presenter. Please note that it will not be possible for the presenter to sign-off on every skill in everyone’s logbook. This is purely an opportunity to get some skills signed-off, and to give coaches a baseline assessment on their progress towards gaining an advanced coaching accreditation.

Candidates are required to bring a demonstrator (an athlete) to the workshop to practice their spotting. The demonstrator should be capable of performing skills and progressions at the advanced level. Please contact the GQ education team, before applying, if you are unsure if you can meet this requirement. 

Please see the Application Form for more details

Closing date = 21 May
 

​​Advanced Coaches Course

Are you planning on attending the upcoming BNE based MAG/WAG Advanced Coaches Course on the 27th & 28th July?

GQ strongly recommends that potential candidates have all their projects uploaded to their LMS profile for marking by 25 June. Projects go directly to Gymnastics Australia who send these to external markers. It will take up to two weeks for your projects to be marked. Candidates will only be able to enrol in the face to face coaches course once all prerequisites are complete, uploaded, marked and approved. Enrolments close strictly 9 July 2019

What are the prerequisites for the MAG/WAG Advanced Coaches Course?
  • Advanced Online General Principles Coaches Course
  • Advanced MAG/WAG Online Coaches Course
  • Physical Preparation Project
  • Annual Seasonal Plan Project
  • Self-Reflection Project
  • Junior Coach Project
  • Spotting Logbook
  • Skills Analysis Project
  • First Aid Certificate
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.
