Recreational Gymnastics Australia (RGA) is responsible for designing and developing a Gymnastics Coach Accreditation Framework to focus on workforce development for recreational gymnastics programs including training, accreditation and provision of insurance to coaches who coach recreational gymnastics. This accreditation will be available from January 2023. The Framework aims to offer a simple, flexible and cost-effective training option for coaches of recreational gymnastics while delivering high standards of coach quality and safety. The accreditation names (e.g. Assistant Coach) are placeholder names at this time. All accreditations are for general gymnastics and does not cover coaching of trampolining. The accreditation does allow the coach to use bounce / rebound apparatus.
