Gymnastics - Kai's Story Kai joined Holborn Gymnastics Club at the age of 5. Kai is 18 now and has been part of the club in a number of roles - starting as a gymnast, taking a role as a Young Leader (through the clubs leadership academy) completing his work experience placement with and finally supporting sessions as a volunteer. Kai’s volunteering led to him developing an interest in coaching. As well as giving him the chance to assist coaches, choreograph routines and help with club performances HCA has supported Kai’s training and development throughout his involvement. Kai was mentored by HCA coaches who would help him week by week delivering sessions as well as prepare for his Level 1 coaching certificate assessment. HCA also secured funds to part contribute and meet the costs for Kai’s accreditation. 12 years later, Kai qualified as a Level 1 coach in 2017 and has now started in a paid role delivering sessions as part of Holborn Gymnastics Club.
