Dear Parent/Guardians/Carers and Gymnasts,


It is with sadness, that Notts Gymnastics Academy officially shares the news that Jemma Wilson has left the Academy and so will not return to work at NGA after her Maternity Leave.

Jemma was a valued member of staff and one of our longest serving members of the coaching team. There have been some wonderful success stories over the years regarding Jemma’s involvement with the Elite Women's Artistic groups, including selections to National Squads, a first selection for an International event, individual medals at the Espoir British Championships and also playing her part in producing our very own Junior British Team Champions. 

Jemma has also been a key member of our Pre-School programme, having lead the discipline in recent years as well as guiding coaches through their Pre-School qualifications.  Jemma’s hard work and dedication has been pivotal to the growth of the programme and has allowed more opportunities for many children to get involved in gymnastics from early years. 

I am sure you will all join us in wishing Jemma and Paul the very best of luck as they prepare for the arrival of their first child and we are sure that Jemma will go on to achieve her coaching ambitions when she returns to the sport.

The original Maternity Leave plan for the WAG groups will continue, whilst the Academy will be working hard behind the scenes to recruit another high-level coach and suitable replacement to join the team.
