Coaches

Hey, 

I am Colette and am a Senior Coach since January 2013. I started gymnastics when I wat 6 years old and did competitive gymnastics as well as acro-gymnastics and tumbling on National level in South Africa. In 2006,  Gymnastics South Australia offered me a coaching job and I immigrated with my family. I moved to Qatar in 2012. I am a South African Gymnastics and Australian Gymnastics certified coach.

Favourite part of coaching: "Feeling that I make a difference in someone's life - whether it is getting that skill or learning not to give up - but get up and try again....as that is what life is all about!"

Hi
 
I am Ali Bird, I qualified as a trampoline coach in 2005 under the tutelage of Bill McLoughlin (British team coach). I then spent the next 3 years coaching in a sports centre in the South of England before moving to Qatar with my family in 2007. I joined the Gymnastics Academy in 2008 and last year undertook further studies to gain coaching qualifications in general gymnastics.
 
I am also a British Gymnastics certified coach in trampoline and general gymnastics.

My name is Gail Comerford and I have lived in Doha since 1999, when I came to teach in one of the secondary schools. I joined the coaching team of DESS Gym Club (later to become the Doha Gymnastics Academy) in the year 2000 and have been involved with the Club up to the present day. Before coming to Qatar I was fortunate to belong to the ParkWrekin Gymnastics Club from 1990 where I qualified as a British coach and judge, and had the opportunity to work alongside the British National Coach, Colin Still and his wife Chris Still. Judging has given me the opportunity to judge competitions in the UK, the Netherlands, Bahrain, Dubai and of course Qatar and also to be involved in many different levels including local clubs, national championships and an international between the British team and Canada.

Hello, 
 
I am Rachel and I hold a Level Two General Gymnastics Coaching qualification, and am Trampoline Certified. I started gymnastics at the age of 6 at the Academy therefore I have been fortunate enough to watch it grow from an after-school club into an internationally recognised Academy, which has seen many different gymnasts and coaches from all over the world pass through its doors. Whilst at University I had the pleasure of coaching gymnastics in the U.K for two years, which allowed me to broaden my knowledge. I love teaching as I love watching the students not only develop their skills, but also their confidence in general. I believe in a healthy and active lifestyle so I like to encourage others to do the same.

I love gymnastics and spent 10 training as a gymnast. I have gymnastics coaching qualifications from the National Institute of Sport and Physical Education in Tunisia, I am also a MAG judge. In my opinion the most important part of coaching is to motivate the children to learn new skills and help them gain confidence in the gym. "Follow your dream and make it come true"

Hi, my name is Elna Fouche, I am from South Africa. I have been doing gymnastics and tumbling my whole life, either as a gymnast or a coach. I love the discipline and dedication it takes to do well and believe that translates to your everyday life as well. I enjoy seeing the excitement on the children's faces when they get a move right and the sense of accomplishment it gives them and the confidence to try something new. I look forward to helping each gymnast reach their goals and potential.
