You are invited to this year’s AGM at Stirling Court Hotel on Saturday 23 September at 1pm. There is also the opportunity on the day to attend some additional workshops. There is no cost to attend these and we look forward to seeing you there:

9.30am: Women’s Technical Panel will be holding their Technical Assembly and you are welcome to come along and join in. They will be discussing ideas for improvements within Women’s Artistic Gymnastics and happy to answer any questions and hear what you think about how it works. Great opportunity to get involved and have your say. 

11.00am: We also have Tony Stanger, Scotland capped rugby player and most recently Head of Talent at the Scottish Institute of Sport coming along. Have you ever wondered why some gymnasts make it and some don’t? Would you like to do more to help them achieve their goals? This workshop will explore understanding talent and will share the evidence behind where ability comes. Using this evidence, he will identify the key factors that drive success and show parents, coaches and gymnasts how they can work together to give everyone the best chance of reaching their potential – not only in sport but in all aspects of their life!

2.00pm: Following the recent communications on the General Data Protection Regulations, there is the opportunity to attend a workshop to help you to better understand the regulations and how to practically apply the GDPR requirements in your club. If you missed attending the workshops that took place at the end of August, this a chance to find out more. In the meantime, there is plenty of details about this within the GDPR Resource Centre on GymNET.

10.00am to 4.00pm: The Development Team will be available throughout the day with up to 90-minute slots available. Subjects to discuss include: Governance | HR | Business Planning | Financials | Funding | Facilities | Marketing | Coach Education

9.30am to 4.45pm: Safeguarding Symposium. This is for Safeguarding Officers and Head Coaches. One of the workshops is to build confidence for managing difficult conversations involving safeguarding, talking to children, coaches and parents, which will be brought to life by actors Suit and Pace, performing real scenarios provided by Scottish Gymnastics and Children 1st. 

Please let Lara Gregson know if you are coming to the AGM and if you would like to attend any of the additional events throughout the day by email at lara.gregson@scottishgymnastics.org
