Hi everyone,

I am a competitive gymnastics coach in Canada. Next year, as part of my university program, I have the chance to take part in an international internship, in any teaching-related context, for a duration of 6 weeks. I would love to use this opportunity to do an internship in a gymnastics club abroad, to learn from more experienced coaches and develop my coaching skills.

I was wondering if anybody knows of clubs that may be willing to accept an (unpaid) intern ? I would prefer to go somewhere in Europe. I speak french, english and spanish. I have 5 years of experience coaching mainly developmental level girls (pre-competitive) as well as JO Levels 4 to 6. I am certified by the national coaching association in Canada to coach WAG up to JO Level 10 as well as trampoline.

Let me know if you know of a place or have recommendations as where to go ! :)

I would honestly just call around (or email if time zones are an issue) around gyms. Sounds like a lot of fun!
