Trampoline Coaching courses
Gymnastics UK recommend a three-step pathway to obtain the recreational
trampolining coach qualification. This is suitable for coaches in clubs,
freelance coaches, teachers in schoools and staff in leisure centres.
Each of the three steps comprises a two day course and the completion of each
step will validate the candidate to teach up to the level covered on that
