Resources for our Clubs and Coaches

Club Resources

We have a variety of resources available to our clubs to help them on their GymABLE journey.

Below you will find some useful information about funding, getting started and a case study of our of our clubs.

We work close with Activate Disability Ireland who also have really useful and resources which are all available here.

Gymnast Award Scheme

The GymABLE award scheme has been designed along similar lines to the well established GymSTART award scheme, with the focus on creating a fun and progressive reward-based programme designed to support both gymnasts and coaches.

These awards are a form of physio-fun that encourage children with a physical disability to explore the world of gymnastics, provide opportunities to complete physical challenges, gain core strength and increased mobility while earning awards and celebrating personal achievement.
Clubs are encourage to use these awards in whatever way suits the club and the gymnasts they are working with.


The gymnastics content of these awards was designed by Clare & Neil Sheehan of Cork Acro Gymnastics Club in conjunction with Sheehan Physiotherapy Clinic.

Gymnastics Ireland would like to thank Clare and Neil for their involvement in the production of these fantastic inclusive awards.

Educational Video Resources

We’ve put together a collection of educational videos which has been created to aid coaches who run disability programs in their clubs.

These videos were filmed at Cork Acro Gymnastics Club, which offers a pan-disability gymnastics program catering to children with both physical and intellectual disabilities.
