2013-14 saw the introduction of the British Gymnastics Leadership Acadmey to Flipitas. This Scheme was introdcuced to keep teenagers and young adults interested in the sport. The Leadership at Flipitas is made up of  gymnasts who are aged 11years upwards whom are interested in coaching and other job roles within the club. The leadership are an absolute pleasure to have in the Club they work closely alongside the senior team and are becoming fantastic coaches themselves in the process. 

Leaders are mentored by Senior Coaches and take part in the BG Proficiency Award Scheme.   As soon as they are 16 they are given the opportunity to take their Level 1 Qualification.  So far we have progressed 9 Leaders into Level 1 Coaches and two of those went on to the apprenticeship schme.
