Clubs & Coaches
There’s a place for everybody in LaunchPad - The Nursery of Australian Sport!
If you're currently an affiliated coach with Gymnastics Australia, it's really easy to get involved with LaunchPad.
LaunchPad: Zoom! is a three hour development workshop aimed at up-skilling current Level One Coaches (any gymsport) in all aspects of LaunchPad, such as the relationship between fundamental movement and brain development as well as a look into the brand behind LaunchPad and all it embodies. LaunchPad: Zoom! offers additional benefits to coaches, such as resources and Gymnastics Australia updating points.
Easy to use LaunchPad Lesson Plans are available to help you in planning fundamental movement lessons for your participants.
Gymnastics Australia's member clubs have the opportunity to become a LaunchPad Club through a simple process. Many of our member clubs are currently delivering fantastic fundamental movement programs that focus on developing the Dominant Movement Patterns through fun and exciting activities.
So you like the philosophies of LaunchPad and can see the alignment between your club's values and goals? If your club offers fun and exciting fundamental movement programs for children and you would like to be able to offer LaunchPad programs in your club environment or perhaps within local school cluster groups, we think your club might be ready to 'Blast Off!'
To become certified as a LaunchPad deliverer, your club must complete the LaunchPad: Blast Off! process. This process has been developed to be as user-friendly as possible - we want you to become a LaunchPad and aim to do everything we can to help you get there!
LaunchPad: Blast Off! is a series of key requirements that all LaunchPads across Australia must be able to demonstrate. Your coaches embody the essence of LaunchPad, your business processes and procedures reflect a good standard of practice and your club's programs may contain all of the necessary elements needed to obtain the LaunchPad: Stamp of Approval.
The LaunchPad: Stamp of Approval is awarded to member clubs who have successfully completed LaunchPad: Blast Off! Once your club has the LaunchPad: Stamp of Approval, a solar system of benefits awaits! Your club will gain access to nationally consistent branding and marketing materials to help you promote your LaunchPad programs. Access to professional development, online communities and networks and discounts on supplementary resources that will further enhance your programs are also available to LaunchPads.
