The Young Leadership Academy has been incorporated into Park Wrekin Gymnasts Club as part of British Gymnastics ‘MY Leadership Academy’ programme, to provide Young Leaders the chance to work as part of our team, offering various roles and opportunities available within gymnastics.
What is the MY Leadership Academy Programme?
The MY Leadership Academy Programme is designed to create a structure which young people can follow to help them develop as leaders within gymnastics environments. The programme encourages leaders to complete five different ‘topic’ areas:
MY Learning: Leaders are tasked with completing a number of different courses, both generic and sport specific.
MY Development: Leaders are tasked with identifying a mentor and learning from working alongside them.
MY Volunteering: Leaders are tasked with volunteering their time at events and meetings.
MY Future: Leaders are tasked with producing a development plan and working towards completing their goals.
MY Projects: Leaders are tasked with identifying appropriate needs, and running a project to add benefits to themselves and their club.
The leaders will meet throughout the year to help plan events, complete training and socialise as a group. Young Leaders will coach predominantly, but also carry our other tasks upon discussion.
This Programme is available to anyone ages 14 or over, please feel free to come along to the Team Meeting on Monday 13th November 2017 at 7pm to get involved. Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
We hope to see as many young people as possible.
