Being involved in the sport for 8 years, Josh loves how gymnastics helps kids learn and grow; how gymnastics teaches life skills, where kids learn to fail and to overcome problems.
Josh is a FIG 2 Coach, an Advanced Judge and holds a Certificate 4 in Sports & Recreation. He also has a Diploma of Business Management, is a level 2 Diving Coach and has his Intermediate Gymnastics for All qualification.
As well as coaching our high level gymnasts at Delta, Josh has been the Queensland WAG Team Coach for the last two years and in 2017 was awarded a WAG Coaching Scholarship with Gymnastics Qld. Over the next year, Josh will undertake a range of educational opportunities, working with some of Australia’s leading coaches!
Josh’s best achievement as a coach is helping create a great group dynamic with his gymnasts, which means the girls train better in the gym.
