What is 'Ignite!'?

Gymnastics Launchpad Ignite! logo

LaunchPad Ignite! is a 4 hour workshop (1 hour online module, 3 hours face to face) developed by Gymanstics Australia, with the aim to give teachers the knowledge needed to deliver the Sporting Schools LaunchPad Gymnastics program in their school. (LaunchPad™ is essentially Gymnastics Australia's trademarked term for a Sporting Schools funded Gymnastics Program.)

The Ignite! workshop covers modules in Neuro-nastics (brain development and movement) and the Dominant Movement Patterns (DMPs). The module aims to give teachers the knowledge needed to deliver a Sporting Schools Gymnastics Program, and is a pre-requisite for the 'Teacher Delivered' program option in the Sporting Schools funding application. Schools are able to select the 'Coach Delivered' option, however must then contract the delivery of the program to an external body. With the Ignite! accreditation teachers can deliver the program themselves without the need to outsource.

As of 2018, Gymnastics Victoria has contracted us (Gymnastics 4 Hire) to manage and run the LaunchPad Ignite! face to face teacher workshops.
