One of the four values that LaunchPad aspires to is lifelong learning. For that reason (and because we want you to keep your skills fresh and updated), we developed a series of professional development opportunities that you can access.
For teachers, LaunchPad: Ignite! workshop provides teachers with the key competencies to be able to deliver gymnastics sessions in the new Australian Sports Commission's Sporting Schools program.
A 3-4 hour active workshop covering modules in Neuro-nastics (brain development and movement) and each of the Dominant Movement Patterns (DMPs). Using a framework of basic movement skills, this workshop aims to give teachers the knowledge and resources they need to deliver LaunchPad programs in schools. A great workshop for teachers who will be more prepared to scaffold their students’ learning through movement and deliver LaunchPad programs in their school environment. LaunchPad: Ignite! is a fun, active and thought-provoking workshop and will get you and your students moving!
For current accredited, Intermediate Gymnastics coaches (any gymsport). LaunchPad: Zoom! is a 1.5 hour workshop that covers Neuro-nastics content and some important information on the LaunchPad philosophy, values and brand. LaunchPad: Zoom! offers additional benefits to coaches, such as resources and GA updating points.
