Regional Pathway Training [Talent Development to Performance Development].
Through sportscotland investment, an emphasis on performance development was agreed to establish a regional coaching infrastructure.
Throughout 2016, Scottish Gymnastics will roll out a team of Regional Pathway Coaches (RPC's) who will have a geographical area with a focus on strengthening the pathway within their allocated area.
This will include developing the technical expertise of personal coaches and provide mentoring support; and additionally, they will provide training opportunities in the region for identified gymnasts (& their coaches) in Women's Artistic (WAG), and supporting clubs in establishing performance development environments.
Working in partnership with clubs and local authorities will strengthen club pathway activity and allow for long term sustainability in our pool of gymnasts.
