The 2016 Trampoline, Tumbling & Double-Mini Trampoline (DMT) British Championships take place across the weekend of Saturday 2nd – Sunday 3rd July at the Echo Arena, Liverpool. 

As well as having national titles up for grabs across all 3 disciplines, this event will also double up as an Olympic trial for Britain's senior trampolinists who have their eyes set on competing in Rio in August. Scotland's Pamela Clark is one of those vying for Team GB selection. Orginally from South Lanarkshire, Pamela now competes with City of Liverpool TC having moved to the city to study at University. She was a member of the Great Britain team to win gold at the 2016 European Championships and recently returned from the World Cup in Italy, where she placed 7th in the final. With only 2 female places at Rio available for GB athletes, Saturday's trial (4.30pm-6.30pm) will be the final chance for those in contetion to show selectors what they’re made of.

Following review of our tumbling programmes the technical panel has made changes necessary for the successful long term development of the discipline. These changes will focus on the priority needs for tumbling and achieve a cost effective delivery for our gymnasts and coaches . Discussions have been ongoing over the last 6 months between staff and members of the technical panel to look at aligning the tumbling programme with the long term outcomes of Scottish Gymnastics’ 12 year strategy. The aim being to ensure the sustainable development of the sport, the quality of delivery and financial viability of our programmes.

We had intended to continue 2015-16 programme in its current form into early 2016 before being revised but following the loss of the technical lead for the national performance programme we have unfortunately had to halt this programme early. We apologise for the sudden change but a new approach needs to be taken which will be done with the input of a new expert lead. We recognise that the priority for our tumbling programme needs to be coach development focussed to best support the gymnasts, and to support the development of clubs as they strive to advance performance potential sustainably on an ongoing basis.

A new programme is being designed with careful thought and meticulous planning and information will be directed to clubs in due course.
