The conference is held on 26thJune 2014 at SWALEC Stadium, Sophia Gardens, Cardiff

The presentation will be delivered by Sarah Jones, Head of Development – Aled Jones, Club Development Officer, Welsh Gymnastics

Operating from three old squash courts and with an increasing demand for club membership following the 2012 Olympic Games, the City of Newport Gymnastics Academy (CNGA) decided to relocate to an industrial unit, with a vision of transforming the unit into a dedicated gymnastics centre.

Through identifying club development priorities, careful business planning and engaging with key partner organisations, CNGA successfully moved into their new facility in May 2013. Operating 6 days a week, the club provides recreational and competitive gymnastics opportunities in women’s and men’s artistic gymnastics.  The club have grown its membership from 120 to just over 260 members in the space of less than a year.

 This presentation will focus on the journey that CNGA undertook and how they worked together with Welsh Gymnastics to achieve their great success.

Sarah Jones is responsible for developing the gymnastic infrastructure across Wales often working with strategic partners. Aled Jones works with and supports clubs, including liaising with local authorities, and partner organisations
