We understand and share the disappointment of the gymnasts, coaches and clubs involved but the health and wellbeing of our members is our main concern. 

We are all aware of the challenges the coronavirus has brought to our day-to-day lives, and we feel it is important to provide certainty at this time to help alleviate any concerns around competitions. 

We would also like to take this opportunity to make our community aware that Scottish Gymnastics and British Gymnastics are continuing to work together and with the technical committees and panels and our performance teams to look at options for each discipline for reviving their competition programmes later in the year. We will make further announcements about these plans when we can.
