Big op­por­tu­nity for gym coach

Bay News - - NEWS - Re­becca Mauger Se­nior re­porter

It takes a spe­cial sort of per­son to coach young chil­dren.

Teresa Iac­carino has trained in gym­nas­tics right up to se­nior level artis­tic gym­nas­tics (level seven) and now coaches the ju­nior gym­nasts at Ar­gos Gym­sport.

She’s been ac­cepted into an in­ter­na­tional academy for gym­nas­tics— the Gym­nas­tikho­jskolen I Ollerup in Den­mark.

Teresa has just found out she has won the 12 month schol­ar­ship to the pres­ti­gious school which will pay her tu­ition and ac­com­mo­da­tion for a year. She will get to hone her gym­nast and coach­ing skills while par­tic­i­pat­ing in com­pe­ti­tions.

This is such an ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity for a young ath­lete and Teresa can’t be­lieve her luck.

Young achiev­ers should take note and in­ves­ti­gate any schol­ar­ship pos­si­bil­i­ties in their cho­sen field.

We wish this young achiever all the best.
