Return To Face-To-Face Education

Gymnastics Victoria will be recommencing face to face coach and judge education as of the 17th of October 2021. We are committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of our members, employees, and volunteers attending face to face education courses and workshops across Victoria.  


In order to promote a COVID safe environment all Gymnastics Victoria education programs will be required to adhere to the following protocols: 


  • Strictly adhere to 1.5m social distancing throughout the course. Please view Safe Work Australia’s physical distancing information here.  

  • It is recommended that participants wear a face mask where they are unable to physically distance.

  • Gymnastics Australia’s Club Surface and Equipment Cleaning Guidelines and Hygiene Education information.  

Gymnastics Victoria strongly encourages vaccinations, there is no current mandate that participants be vaccinated against COVID-19. Our presenting team will all be provided with the updated GV COVIDSafe operating plan for education courses prior to the course to ensure every measure is being taken to protect our communities


In addition, Gymnastics Victoria have implemented the following guidelines for the delivery of face to face coaching and judging courses from October 17th.  These guidelines will continue to be modified and updated to align with Victorian Government advice.  


  • Beginner and Intermediate coaching courses and all judging courses will be capped at a maximum of 10 participants only.

  • Advanced coaching courses, including Advanced Tumbling and Spring Module 1 courses will be capped at a maximum of 10 participants only.  

  • No sharing of athlete demonstrators. Athlete demonstrators must be the athlete that the participant personally coaches - not from another training group. Parents of athlete demonstrators cannot stay for the duration of the course. 

  • All course enrolments will close on the Monday prior to a scheduled course. Late enrolments will not be accepted.  

  • All attendees will be required to complete a pre-course health screening including participants, athlete demonstrators, and presenters.  

  • All course resources will be emailed to participants prior to the course and participants will be responsible for bringing their personal resources to the course.  

  • It is strongly recommended that all participants, presenters, and athlete demonstrators download the COVID Safe app and ensure it is active throughout the course.
