The 3-step pathway to gymnastics and trampoline
coach training

The 3-step pathway is the most popular programme of training courses for those who wish to coach recreational gymnastics and trampolining in schools, clubs or leisure centres.
The programme moves away from the old system of Level 1 assistant and Level 2 lead coach. Instead, if the candidate is 18 years of age or over, he or she is validated to lead and teach sessions up to the level covered by the course that has been completed. When the coach is ready to move on to the next step, he or she will be validated to lead and teach up to the level covered by that course. Some coaches may not wish to teach beyond step 1 or step 2 (for instance, if they only teach pre-school, special needs or mainstream beginners) and that is fine.
Candidates under the age of 18 can still attend the courses (subject to the minimum age requirements) and can assist in sessions until they reach the age of 18, when they will automatically be validated to lead and teach unsupervised.
All courses are based on the internationally recognised Winstrada gymnastics and trampoline development and award schemes.

The 3-step pathway is offered by a coalition of gymnastic bodies.*

Trampoline coaching courses -
How do I train to become a trampolining coach?

Many governing and representative bodies support the widely held view that:
"The principles of Rebound Therapy form the basis of all trampoline gymnastic movement and are therefore the logical and advisable starting point for all trampoline coach training – even for those who are not planning to teach people with disabilities."

The 3-step pathway of trampoline coach training courses is:

  • Step 1) The Level 2 Rebound Therapy training course. This two-day course covers all the basics of trampoline gymnastic movement as covered in grades 1 to 3 of the Winstrada trampoline development programme. This training course will prepare candidates for teaching children and adults with a wide range of disabilities. It is an internationally recognised training course and is also suitable for teaching mainstream pre-school children. The course is run by ReboundTherapy.org

  • Step 2) 'Rebound Plus' add-on module to the above. This two-day course covers the moves in grades 4 to 8 of the Winstrada development programme. It goes beyond special needs trampolining and is suitable for teaching 'more able' people and mainstream beginners. Course run by ReboundTherapy.org

  • Step 3) Authority Trampoline Coach Recreational Trampoline coaching course. A more advanced two-day course for those who have completed the Rebound Therapy course and the 'Rebound Plus' add-on module and wish to progress to teach more advanced trampolining. The course covers the moves in grades 9 and 10 of the Winstrada development and proficiency award programme.
