SO, YOU'RE READY TO HANG UP YOUR LEOTARD
Feedback and skill acquisition are constant indicators of growth and development in the gymnastics environment, however lack of such measurable successes can be disheartening.
Gymnastics gives our lives structure and discipline, and many athletes find that their lives become haphazard without it.
Being a gymnast is a life-long identity, however the initial disconnect with self-hood after retirement can be a confusing time.
The Athlete Transitional Package
We at Gymnastics NSW acknowledge the hard work of all our athletes. The Athlete Transitional package has been developed to encourage and support our retiring gymnasts and assist them in their transition to life outside the competition arena.
(INCLUDE WHAT RESOURCE ENTAILS)
You may have finished your time on the floor, but there are other ways to stay on
If you're looking for part-time work which will contribute to your professional development and give you workplace experience, coaching may be a great option for you.
Share your knowledge and experience with the community by coaching young athletes not unlike your former self! Coaching is not only a great way to add experience to your resume, but a way in which to transition out of the sport by challenging yourself in a different position.
Otherwise, have your say and join our LEAP program.
LEAP is all about leadership, engagement and participation. It will not only give you helpful insight into the gymnastics environment, but provide life-long skills needed for every day life.
Leap into something new, learn further, and foster relationships for now and beyond!
