Individual Membership Information

Individual Membership

To comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), individuals must complete the online registration through GymNET; for those under 16 a parent or guardian will have to complete this. 

Historically, clubs have provided details about the gymnast to Scottish Gymnastics to allow us to activate membership benefits, including insurance, and to send out membership pack. Due to the change in legislation, gymnast members (or their parent/guardian if they are under 16 years old) need to join or renew their Scottish Gymnastics membership directly with us.

The Scottish Gymnastics membership year runs from 1 September to 31 August each year.

Before the new membership year starts, gymnasts or their parents/guardians will be provided with everything they need to know to complete the new membership process. They will receive an email from British Gymnastics once their gymnastics club has completed the membership process. Clubs will have the option of downloading digital cards to share with members about the join and renew process. Clubs can also buy printed cards to hand out.

The online membership system is available via the Renew button at the top of this page for existing members, and the Join button for new members. 

13 Week Membership -This membership is only available to new gymnasts who have not been a member of Scottish Gymnastics before. The cost is £9, it is not available online, email membership@scottishgymnastic.org for a form.

Coach, judge and club officials memberships

Renewal dates for coaches, judges and club officials memberships vary throughout the year. Your club will notify you when your membership is due for renewal but if you think your membership may be due for renewal you can check GymNet. Our membership system will know when you are due to renew and it won’t allow you to complete the process until then.

If you are a judge, perform a club role or perhaps a mix of both, the system will help you select the membership type you need – there are descriptions of the types further down this page

We want to support participants getting back to their club and so during the first month of the new membership year in September, we will be subsidising the annual fee for bronze and silver members who renew their membership or join for the first time. This means:
