Contribution to Gymnastics + Community
Over the years Scallywaggs staff have been on various NSWGA committees and supplies judges and volunteers at every competition we attend. Scallywaggs has also participated in the last 4 World Gymnaestradas being the only club in NSW to do so, there are also plans to attend the next event, Scallywaggs display team completely adheres to the GFA philosophy and their last 3 teams have had performers aged from 6 - 70 and included 3 generations of the same family on the floor together.
Training + Development
Scallywaggs has an extensive staff training program in place to ensure that all of the programs are delivered to the highest standard. There is a staff training session held every day where staff are shown new skills or teaching methods, staff are also encouraged to have input to the programs.
There is an apprentice coaching program for young gymnasts who want to become an instructor and they must complete a work book that has coaching steps as well as OH & S requirements, procedures and policies of the gym, responsibilities of instructors, dealing with an problems that may arise.
Apprentices are mentored by the head coach in the gym and given feedback after every class.
Scallywaggs holds a different assessment each term to ensure gymnasts are able to move through the skill levels in the gym.
Highlights of 2016
Although only having a competitive stream for the last 3 years Scallywaggs has performed at a very high level, this year we had an overall 3rd place in level 5 at the NSW Country Championships, in 2015 we also had a level 3 Hunter Champion. All
other results at competition have exceeded our expectations as the girls have competed against gymnasts who train much longer hours than out girls.
