Previously known as GMPD (Gymnastics & Movement for People with Disabilities) this discipline is now known by its new name, Disability Gymnastics.
The disability gymnastics programme ensures that gymnastics is adapted to meet the needs of each gymnast. Through the delivery of disability gymnastics, coaches can enable all disabled gymnasts to achieve their full potential, focusing on what they can do, not on what they can't do. From fundamental movement activity to elite gymnastics skills, disability gymnastics has something exciting, fun and engaging for people of all ability levels to enjoy; it is also widely recognised as providing many physical and social benefits for participants, such as developing increased coordination skills and building confidence.
Disability gymnastics is a far more recognisable and inclusive title for this exciting programme. It also follows the social model terminology for disability, which is socially acceptable and truly reflects the inclusive nature of the programme.
