We recently reported that talented gymnast Lucy (Year 9) would be undertaking a key role in the launch of a new community gymnastics satellite centre at Queens Hill Primary School – and now she has told us how it went:
“My gymnastics club, Split Leaps, ran taster sessions at the centre through the day, with the children getting the chance to try out the different equipment with the help of the coaches and volunteer gymnasts. I helped with vault, bar and tumble, demonstrating what they needed to do and then helping them do the skills safely.”
Nearly 400 boys and girls took part during the day and they all thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Lucy will now be regularly acting as a volunteer assistant coach after school on Friday afternoons, so she will be gaining valuable experience before taking her first coaching qualification.
