FEMALE ATHLETE HEALTH WORKSHOP

The Scottish Gymnastics performance team is running a workshop on female athlete health for coaches.

The session will be led by Dr Carrie McCrea-Routray who is a specialist in sports medicine with more than ten years’ experience.  She has held significant roles working with high performance and development athletes throughout Scotland and has special interests in mental health in sport and female athlete issues.

This education session will be attended by regional pathway coaches and east region support hub clubs. However, we would like to invite other coaches to attend this workshop, at a cost of £15 per person. 

The workshop takes place at Caledonia House on Tuesday 26 June between 1pm and 3pm. Any coaches who want to take advantage of this opportunity, please sign up by 12 noon on Friday 22 June.

Scottish Gymnastics Performance Manager Wendy Purdie said: “We recognise the importance of female athlete health and how this affects our gymnasts’ performance whilst training or competing. 

“We want to help break down the barriers with a greater understanding of this area, which can often be viewed as a “taboo” subject. We want to educate gymnasts, parents and coaches and really pleased that Dr Carrie McCrea-Routray can join us to deliver this course as part of our performance pathway programmes.”
