The first Gymnastics Ireland GymABLE Disability Coaching 'Add-on' module was successfully delivered last Sunday 15th Nov online with an excellent response of over 60 coaches expressing an interest in taking part.

Funded by the GymABLE Program and Sports Ireland’s Dormant account funds, the module saw 25 coaches from clubs all around the country joining our staff members and Disability Tutor Hazel Coates. GymABLE is Gymnastics Ireland's inclusive programme targeted at providing gymnastics opportunities for people with disabilities that launched in 2017.

Participation manager Aimi Baker said: “We were proud to be able to fund this coaching module through our Sport Ireland 'Dormant Accounts Funding' so it was free of charge for all our interested coaches. It really was fantastic to see such a positive response from our clubs in developing disability gymnastics across the country"

Attention now shifts to the upcoming GymSTART Challenge Takeover 2020 where we will be celebrating everything we love about GymSTART – past & present from Sunday 22nd to Sunday 29th November, followed by our next GymABLE online module on Sunday 29th November. Keep an eye on our social media channels for more details about these online events.
