Teachers and Schools

Welcome to Gymnastics Ireland’s Teachers Section

Participation is a core area of development within Gymnastics Ireland, and developing gymnastics in primary, secondary schools and tertiary level, is a key part of our work.

"Schools gymnastics is a crucial part of developing and increasing participation in gymnastics in Ireland. We are committed to developing programmes and resources to support the growth of gymnastics, and to open Gymnastics Ireland up to a wider audience. We would also hope that our website would become the primary source of information on everything to do with gymnastics in Ireland".
