The annual Gymnastics Ontario Coaching Congress offers up-to-date professional development sessions for Ontario gymnastics coaches of all levels and disciplines. We bring highly respected conductors from across Canada and abroad to enhance our understanding of our sport and optimize our motivation for the upcoming season.
Training sessions range from new & out of the box progressions and teaching techniques to sport psychology, child psychology, concussion research, understanding changes in code and compulsory routines, talent identification, nutrition and more!
