GymEDGE is a sports coach development programme that uses core fundamental gymnastics skills and training techniques to build the complete athlete or player.
"It is a great basis for any child coming into sport is that they are involved in gymnastics, and if they go on and do other sports later in life, they are better athletes because of it".
John Tracey, CEO, Irish Sports Council
