Jordon Wong is one of our amazing Delta coaches at our Kedron Venue. Joining the Delta team in 2018, Jordan is currently completing an Internship with Delta Gymnastics where he is allocated time in his full time role, specifically for learning. Jordon is embracing this and currently coaches across the board from our Delta Gym Kids Preps, right through to our Level 7 and 8 Aspire Competitive Gymnasts.
Jordan has been involved in gymnastics most of his life, having done the sport as a child – and has been coaching gymnastics since 2008. Hailing from Central West NSW, Jordan has a varied background as a performer, competitor and teacher and brings so much to the role at Delta. Jordan is an Intermediate WAG and Tumble Coach, has a CDPA in Drama and Performance and is currently studying a Bachelor of Education.
Jordan likes the coaching mentality. He loves that gymnastics teaches kids to be courageous, confident and willing to take a risk! It teaches kids to work hard and to focus – and – it’s fun to be upside down!
