Emily McConaghy

Recreational Coach

Emily grew up doing gymnastics her whole life, providing her with lots of experience she can bring into my coaching. 8 years ago she started training to become a coach and have since coached and taken gymnasts to local, state and national competitions.


In addition, Emily is currently completing her degree in sport and exercise science at UTS. This degree has elevated her coaching and has provided her with further knowledge to integrate into her gymnastics teaching.

Recreational Coach

Alessi has been working as an intermediate gymnastics coach for the past 3 years and has recently become an intermediate judge in 2022.


Gymnastics has always been her passion from a very young age and was always climbing and swinging on things, leading her to then joining gymnastics at her school and competing for 4 years.


Now as a coach her aim is to inspire and pass on her passion for gymnastics, always wanting to make a fun and inspiring learning environment for everyone!
