Coaches Toolkit

This section of the website is the coaches toolkit.  The objective is to provide gymnastics coaches at all levels and in every discipline additional guidance, practical tools and current research in the field which will support them in their coaching environment. 

The toolkit focuses on the fundamental coaching areas of planning, concussion in gymnastics, physical preparation, nutrition, talent development, skill development & supporting coaches.  This is not an exhaustive list of key development areas for coaches.  So in addition to these common areas Scottish Gymnastics will also be adding monthly coaching updates to this section.

In each section of the toolkit there is an explanation of the tools, how they may be used and are free to download for you to keep and use in your own environment.  The objective is to continue to help develop the standard of our gymnastics coaches in Scotland.
