Updates on Future Developments
We’ve got a whole lot of exciting things underway here at LaunchPad HQ! We thought we’d take the opportunity to let you in on a few of the developments currently underway…
We realise that sometimes you just need to talk to someone who understands your situation. Perhaps another coach who feels as though they have run out of ideas to make their sessions fun… Perhaps a teacher who feels that they can’t fit HPE into the daily timetable because there’s just far too much to do in other subject areas… We’d like to help set you up with others just like you. Being able to easily access others in your network makes life just that little bit easier. The Launch POD is currently under construction.
Gymnastics Australia has a range of highly capable clubs and service providers that deliver quality movement programs. If you are delivering LaunchPad through your school, we’d like you to have information on hand about local clubs in your area that can help progress your children after they have launched into fundamental movement with you. You may like these coaches to come into your school and help you to learn how to deliver LaunchPad. You may like to take your kids to a member organisation’s venue and see just how many other movement possibilities there are in your area.
