he bould Jamie from Sugarloaf Gymnastics has been in touch about some brand new positions at the award-giving club.
And they’ve got not only full-time vacancies but part-time too.
Here’s the lowdown…
Sugarloaf Gymnastics Club is Wicklow’s most well-known and loved full time gymnastics club.
Located in Kilcoole just by CCA in a fully kitted out gymnastics centre they boast a strong team of highly qualified and skilled coaches with the ultimate goal to provide a high quality of gymnastics instruction in a safe learning, fun, progressive and encouraging environment which helps each child reach their full potential.
They’re an affiliated member of the Olympic Governing Body Gymnastics Ireland, with all coaches Garda Vetted and Safe Guarded through Sport Ireland as is the standard for all gymnastics club operation.
They specialise in general and Women’s Artistic Gymnastics. There is activity, fun & fitness in a healthy and child friendly environment at SGC. They have built up an excellent reputation, providing the best classes around including a broad range of classes from pre-school to recreational to competitive gymnastics in a safe and well equipped environment.
On a performance level SGC has had gymnasts represent Ireland at International level competitions and for the past 12 years has had members on the National Squad Team for Women’s Artistic Gymnastics. SGC hold both past and present National title winners in the Gymnastics Ireland National Series competitions.

They’re looking for new coaches to join the team!

Are you interested but not qualified in gymnastics coaching?
Prior experience as a gymnast is not an absolute must if looking to work within the pre-school and recreational program. Some of SGC’s best coaches have had limited gymnastics experience themselves but have thrived in learning to become a coach. Having worked with children previously is of benefit or even those working within the health and fitness industry in a gym or leisure club.
In terms of skills, a confident and patient individual who can motivate people and adapt to the needs of different personalities and abilities is the ideal candidate for gymnastics coaching. If you have the personality, the drive to learn and interest in helping kids develop good co-ordination, self confidence and discipline through sport then this may be the job for you!
Of course you may also be a former Sugarloaf Gymnastics member yourself so have some knowledge of the sport, if over 18 then get in touch. It’s the perfect part time role while in college which can lead to a full time role as you progress as a coach.
The management team in Sugarloaf Gymnastics are accepting applications now for immediate starts.
