National Technical Advisor – Chris Short
Assistant Technical Advisor - Tracey Brown
The National Performance Programme (NPP) for Teamgym commenced for the first time in Scotland in August 2018. The National Technical Advisor and Assistant Technical Advisor will lead a performance pathway programme which is about establishing a sustainable system to develop gymnasts and coaches capable of International success. The programme is as much about developing the personal coaches as it is to support the advancement of our gymnasts.
The NPP has been designed to strengthen performance development of our coaches and gymnasts within the Teamgym programme and to continue this learning within the club training environment; our Technical Advisor, Chris Short, and Assistant Technical Lead, Tracey Brown, will guide and lead the programme which will have an ethos of hard work and continuous improvement required from gymnasts and coaches who are selected.
A series of non-residential camps will be run to provide opportunities for identified gymnasts and for all coaches to provide long term development. The camps will take place at suitable training venues depending on the focus of the camps on the following dates:
Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 August 2019
Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 September 2019
Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 November 2019
