We have created the Step Forward Plan in partnership with British, Welsh and English Gymnastics and Gymnastics Northern Ireland in response to Covid-19, as we work together to help the gymnastics community and a safe return to gymnastics.
Our plan is split into three steps: prepare, resume and rebuild, centred around four key pillars of support - people, places, programmes and protection, as shown in the video at the bottom of the page. Clubs and delivery partners can access the full set of resources, including videos, webinars and online activity ideas through the dedicated Step Forward site hosted by British Gymnastics.
You will find the latest gymnastics guidance below based on the Scottish Government Covid-19 protection levels. The activity clubs can offer is dependent on when the Scottish Government says this can take place safely in line with public health priorities in individual local authorities.
The full guidance refers to documents you should read before your club reopens, such as getting your facilities ready for sport, which you will see below. You will also find risk assessments and reopening checklist which must be completed. Scottish Gymnastics insurance has been extended to cover endorsed outdoor activity.

Scottish Gymnastics Covid-19 coach contact guidance for clubs and coaches updated 15 July 2021
On Monday 19 July all of Scotland will be in Covid-19 protection level 0.
It is expected that on Monday 9 August, Scotland will move "beyond level 0" and we expect more information nearer the time about how that will affect gymnastics and current guidance.
The coach contact framework and action plan are only are valid for clubs operating in levels 4 to 1.
Coach contact is allowed at level 0: please follow the Scottish Gymnastics Covid-19 indoor gymnastics guidance and protection levels table for details of how to do that safely
