2018 ACRO HOME NATIONS TOURNAMENT

2018 Home Nations Acro Tournament  – application to trial is now open

Following consultation between all Home Nations, agreement was reached to look at an approach to providing consistent and progressive events programme to support gymnasts on the performance pathway.

The following principles were agreed:

  • Any event needs to support the development of gymnasts and coaches on their journey along the performance pathway
  • We need to establish quality events with competition that appropriately challenges gymnasts and coaches and allows key behaviours to be developed on the competition floor
  • Competition formats are designed to best prepare gymnasts and coaches for future competition at British and International events
  • We establish an events programme that supports gymnasts and coaches in being able to consistently deliver performances at important events

As a result of this consultation a Performance Development competition, Home Nations Tournament, will be held  for Acrobatics and Men’s & Women’s Artistic at Bells Sports Centre, Perth on 28th & 29th April 2018.  Scotland are hosting the inaugural competition and the Artistic competition will take place on Saturday 28th April and the Acrobatics competition will take place on Sunday 29th April.
