Nick Ruddock coming to Melbourne
Gymnastics Victoria is excited to announce that Nick Ruddock is coming to Melbourne! We will be hosting a two day Coach Conference featuring renowned gymnastics coach Nick Ruddock at the start of February in 2019. This workshop will be in addition to the usual GV Coach Conference to be held on the 19th- 20th January 2019.
Nick Ruddock is the current personal coach of Great British National Team Member and 2016 Olympic floor exercise bronze medallist, Amy Tinkler. Serving as the GB WAG Junior National Coach from 2010-2014, Ruddock’s efforts saw the Junior National Team rise from 5th place in 2010 to 2nd place in 2014 at the Junior European Championships. Under Ruddock’s lead, the junior team created British history by achieving five individual podium finishes at the championships in 2014.
Following his success Ruddock became the Managing Director of his own company ‘Nick Ruddock Gymnastics’ where he continues to share his knowledge with the gymnastics community. In addition he has attended the Union of European Gymnastics WAG training camps as a technical expert and lecturer for the past eight years. Nick’s extensive knowledge has been gained from time spent in Russia, Romania and the United States, and has learnt and been mentored by some of the world’s most experienced and accomplished coaches.
