Bede has been involved in gymnastics for 17 years and joined Delta Brisbane in 2013, before heading north to join our Barron Valley team!

Bede brings a great deal of enthusiasm, experience and qualifications to the role. He holds a Degree in Recreation Management and is an Advanced WAG Coach. Bede has also worked for Gymsports New Zealand as a gymnastics coaching course presenter.
Bede loves how gymnastics lets you breaks things down into small chunks – which means you can work on one thing at a time, step by step.
He also loves having the opportunity to inspire gymnasts to believe in themselves. Bede’s greatest achievement in his role is for his gymnasts to feel great when they don’t win.
