Meet the Coaches
Amy Garcia Rapoport
Higher Energy Trampoline Gymnastics Club provides a child centred, coach led programme designed to help young people develop their optimum level of performance.
All staff are highly trained through British Gymnastics, obtained their first aid certifications, attended Safeguarding, ethic and welfare training seminars and are specialists in delivering SEN sessions. Our coaches regularly attend Sportscoach UK CPD’s to enhance their own performance and ensure our team is delivering the cutting edge techniques in delivering sessions.
We are so proud to have such a dedicated team of coaches, leaders and volunteers to include occupational therapists, physiotherapists, ballet instructors and sport scientists, all pulling together their knowledge to create a progressed pathway into the sport.
A dedicated & passionate team has evolved over the years to include ex- National performers, parents of Club members & those who may not have performed in the sport, but simply fell in love with Trampolining.
Our coaches are from all walks of life with one thing in common…. a desire to aid a young persons potential, regardless of age, gender, race or ability.
Our leadership academy consists of young people who volunteer their time to help with coaching and running of the club and are part of the MY Leadership Academy Program.
The MY Leadership Academy Programme is designed to create a structure which young people can follow to help them develop as leaders within gymnastics environments (schools, clubs and leisure centres). The programme encourages leaders to complete five different ‘topic’ areas:
MY Development: Leaders are tasked with identifying a mentor and learning from working alongside them
MY Volunteering: Leaders are tasked with volunteering their time at events and meetings.
MY Future: Leaders are tasked with producing a development plan and working towards completing their goals.
MY Projects: Leaders are tasked with identifying appropriate need
The programme introduces Young Leaders to the various roles and opportunities available within gymnastics, helps them to identify their strengths and the aspects of gymnastics they enjoy and encourages leaders to stay within the sport for longer, creating a larger and stronger workforce for the future.
The programme is specifically targeted at Young Leaders aged 11-17, but is equally open to anyone over the age of 17. The programme is structured, yet flexible in that it can be adapted to suit the needs of individuals and different environments. There are awards, rewards and recognition available at various stages of completion to encourage the leaders to continue to develop.
