The Performance Pathway Programme targets the development of coaches and gymnasts on the competitive performance pathway. The content of the programme is made up of Pathway Camps and Clinics. Technical lead and Olympic medallist coach, Paul Greaves, support this programme. 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 in compulsory and voluntary 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.
Personal coaches and gymnasts are selected onto the programme and attend the camps for the programme year. There are additional opportunities for coaches to attend these camps for their personal development as well as the Pathway Clinics.
