Gymnastics NSW believe that young leaders interested in developing into coaches / officials or administrators are not dissimilar to young athletes who are striving to become high level performers.  They need a strong dedication, desire and commitment to personnel excellence; solid leadership and communication skills.  They need to demonstrate improvement, be open-minded and possess the desire to move up the ladder, whilst also having a passion for sport. 

Gymnastics NSW have developed a Leadership Pathway to support young people to move through a structure of opportunities and professional development.
