Message from SGA President
SGA fundamentally believes that unlawful discrimination is unacceptable. SGA will endeavour through our polices, procedures, actions and decision making, ensure that no employee, member or volunteer receives less favourable treatment or is discriminated against on the grounds of race, disability, gender, religious or political belief, sexual orientation, age, social background, marital status or pregnancy.
We believe the principles of equity should be integral to every aspect of our sport; development, delivery, decision-making, and everyone working in gymnastics whether in a paid or voluntary capacity should give due regard to equity as a matter of course.
President, Scottish Gymnastics
