Pathway Programme

The Performance Pathway Programme targets the development of coaches and gymnasts on the competitive pathway. The content of the programme comprises of Pathway Camps and Clinics with expert technical input specific to the needs of the discipline. The British national coaching team support this programme whereby coaches can follow the UK’s continually advancing best practice systems. With this support, enthusiastic coaches are developing the knowledge and skills to gain the coaching expertise necessary to achieve increased success at British competition and greater representation in British squads.

Pathway Clinics specifically help coaches to gain the confidence to deliver excellent foundation skills required for quality results at National Grade competition; to understand and improve the preparation of gymnasts for competition; and also to nurture the ambition to develop gymnasts with long term involvement and success in the sport. Pathway Camps provide a platform of training that looks to widen the base of the talent pool and improve the quality within it.

A series of training camps led by a team of experts at South Essex Gymnastics Club (home of World Champion Max Whitlock and his coach Scott Hann) features prominently as part of this. These camps are attended by a select group of gymnasts and coaches where an ethos of hard work and continuous improvement is required from those gymnasts identified through the grades competition system.
