13 FIG Coach Education courses December 2019

The past year has been incredibly busy for the FIG coach education programmes which oversaw and organised some 85 courses in 35 countries that were attended by nearly two thousand coaches from 85 countries and taught by 82 experts.

In addition, Parkour that became part of the FIG one year ago, was fast-tracked so that the Level 1 Academy Programme and the Age Group Development and Competition Programme were completed in three languages and introduced to fifteen countries in three courses. …

On December 13, for the first time ever, ten academies that were held on four continents, overlapped. More importantly, these included all seven competition disciplines – ACRO, AER, MAG, PK, RG, TRA, WAG – as well as Gymnastics for All. On that day 179 coaches from 27 countries and all continents were being taught by 31 FIG experts from 14 countries. It was a remarkable moment and one not likely ever to be repeated. …
