Travel Permit

Travel permit applications should be completed by all clubs who are attending trips outwith Scotland or any trips involving an overnight stay.  If parents are travelling with the gymnasts, please still submit a travel permit so we are aware that these gymnasts are travelling.

  • Please note, a travel permit is not required for PPP or NPP trips or representative events where the gymnasts have been selected by Scottish Gymnastics.
  • If gymnasts are travelling with their parents in their car or with them on the train etc, then please mark this in the appropriate field.
  • For overnight stays for grades, levels and Gymfest etc, mark on the form how many gymnasts are staying over and we will cross reference this with your event entry.

You can find the Travel Permit Application HERE

Please email completed travel permit application to 4 weeks before date of departure.

Travel insurance quotes are now provided directly through our insurers. Please contact Dominic Brosnan at W Denis who can arrange travel insurance for you –

Safeguarding and PVG Disclosure

All chaperones, coaches, helpers and team managers must have the relevant membership, hold a PVG Disclosure through SG and must also have attended a relevant SG safeguarding course within the last 3 years. To find a safeguarding course click HERE. 


Hosting of gymnasts: Scottish Gymnastics is unable to regulate or insure against the hosting of gymnasts in any situation other than within establishments licensed for the provision of overnight accommodation.

Extra-Curricular Activity

SG would not insure any non-gymnastics activity. For example swimming. Additional travel insurance should be acquired for this. W Denis can be used for this, see above.
