Step Forward Plan

In partnership with British, Welsh and English Gymnastics and Gymnastics Northern Ireland, we have created the Step Forward Plan to help the gymnastics community, in response to Covid-19 as we work together for a safe return to gymnastics.

Our plan is split into three steps which will depend on phases under the Scottish Government route map through and out of Covid-19: prepare, resume and rebuild. It is centred around four key pillars of support – people, places, programmes and protection, as shown in the video below.

Clubs and delivery partners will also be able to access a host of resources, including videos, webinars and guidance documents via a dedicated Step Forward site hosted by British Gymnastics

The Scottish Government published Scotland’s Covid-19 route map through and out of the crisis on 21 May which sets out the order in which it plans to relax restrictions. Based on our discussions with Scottish Government and sportscotland and following the easing of lockdown, Scottish Gymnastics insurance has been extended to cover endorsed outdoor activity. We published guidance along with outdoors gymnastics risk assessment and checklist when Scotland moved into phase two of the route map on 18 June.
