Leadership Academy

Leaders in Action


Infinity Gymnastics are pleased to announce that they have set up a “Leadership Academy” for children between 11-17 years old.  The academy programme is designed to create a structure which young people can follow to help them develop as leaders within gymnastics in school, clubs and leisure centres. All members will be provided with a free “My Leadership Academy” booklet which they will be required to work through at their own pace. There are awards, rewards and recognition available at various stages of completion to encourage the participants to continue following the programme and develop as leaders. Please see below what they are required to complete:

The programme encourages leaders to complete five different ‘topic’ areas:

  • MY Learning – Leaders are tasked with completing a number of different courses, both generic and sport specific.
  • MY Development – Leaders are tasked with identifying a mentor and learning from working alongside them.
  • MY Volunteering – Leaders are tasked with volunteering their time at events, and meetings.
  • MY Future – Leaders are tasked with producing a development plan and completing their goals.
  • MY Projects – Leaders are tasked with identifying the needs, and running a project which benefits them/their club.

The programme introduces Young Leaders to the various roles and opportunities available within the sport, helping them to identify their strengths and the areas they enjoy.  This potentially provides them with experience needed for future goals they may have; personal statements, university applications etc as well as potentially providing them with job opportunities within Infinity Gymnastics.

Infinity have set up a specific time for the “leaders” to meet to work through the booklet, discuss anything with myself and for all the leaders to work towards specific projects. We do not want to refuse anyone the opportunity to be part of the Leadership Academy and therefore if your child is unable to attend this session, please don’t hesitate to contact me to aim to find a suitable arrangement.

Meetings are held at Southwater Leisure Centre 5:00-6:30pm on the following dates:

Thursday 25th July

Tuesday 10th September

Thursday 3rd October

Tuesday 22nd October

Thursday 14th November

Tuesday 3rd December

Thursday 19th December

Also, the Leaders organise the Christmas Party which is booked for 22nd December.

All “leaders” will receive a free Infinity Leader T-shirt to wear during their volunteering.
