Gymnastics in Vanuatu
Vanuatu is the newest country to become involved in the FIG funded Oceania Development Plan.
VANUATU – THE STORY SO FAR….
In 2019 Nancy Miyake attended Kindergym Coach training in Australia and will take the learnings back to Vanuatu to introduce programs for pre-school children.
Earlier in 2019, a generous donation of second hand gymnastics equipment was made by Gold Coast Gymnastics Club from Queensland Australia. The equipment including uneven bars, a beam and spring board has been transported to Vanuatu and is currently being housed at Wan Smolbag – a non-profit organisation focused on youth. FreeG as a pathway to Parkour will also be introduced at Wan Smolbag.
An Australian expert development visit will be conducted to Vanuatu later in 2019 to conduct coach and teacher training and to introduce gymnastics to children and youth.
