Coach Education

Disability Gymnastics Awareness Module

This is an informative-based Add-On Module focused on disability awareness and will cover the social model of disability, terminology, barriers and solutions, practical advice and examination of key theories and models for inclusion.

This module is not a requirement for GI qualified coaches working with gymnasts with a disability, however it is recommended to raise awareness and progress coaching ability.


“The disability module gave me some great ideas to bring back to my classes. It also gave me more confidence in what we were already doing in our club. The sharing of ideas among coaches already working the GymABLE classes was of great benefit. I especially liked the fact that the tutor kept reassuring us that we are already coaches and while we need to adapt some things it is still a gymnastics class we are teaching so we are able and qualified to do so”.
