The 2021 MAG & WAG Leading Coaches Conference will be conducted as a face to face conference at the Gymnastics Queensland High Performance Centre.  Whilst face to face interaction with the presenters, gymnasts and other coaches is most valuable, we appreciate there may be coaches outside of SEQ who may be unable to attend in person, therefore there will be an option to attend live “virtually”.  


Saturday 27 & Sunday 28 November 2021


Gym QLD High Performance Centre
Sleeman Sports Complex, Chandler
