LEAP Youth Panel

What is it?

Gymnastics NSW believes that youth are the gateway to the future of our sport. To ensure we keep heading in the right direction, we created the LEAP Youth  Panel so that young people can have their voices heard and play a role in guiding our sport into the future. The Panel focuses on raising awareness of youth issues, advocating on behalf of young people and creating opportunities to contribute to decision making and the planning of the LEAP initiatives and major events in gymnastics.

Our members are between the ages of 16 and 24, come from all over NSW therefore representing the diverse group of young people participating in gymnastics

What’s involved?

Panel members meet once every 4-6 weeks throughout the year to discuss a range of topics and monitor and evaluate decisions involving children and young people in gymnastics. Panel members also consult with youth, club members and external stakeholders on issues concerning young people in gymnastics. Not all meetings are face to face as we understand panel members come from all over NSW.
