I have been involved in coaching gymnastics for 18yrs and have developed a love for the sport that has provided me with a wealth of opportunity, experience and happy memories. I have coached all levels of gymnasts from pre-school children to British Champions and was a GB National Coach for several years.

An ex Southern Region County Champion, gymnastics is my passion which is why I chose to make the coaching of this sport my career.
Many ex- squad gymnasts like to get involved and help with the coaching at the club. Sharing the same passion and love of gymnastics, the coaches are enthusiastic about passing on their knowledge and experience to the younger gymnasts.
