Following a busy profiling day in Glenrothes on 25 January gymnasts have now been selected for the trampoline national performance programme (NPP) and performance pathway programme (PPP).
Gymnasts who will be competing in NDP 5 and NDP 6 this competition year were invited to trial for the performance pathway programme, with those competing in FIG levels for the new tier of programme, the national performance programme.
The profiling day involved gymnasts being assessed on brilliant basics and technical drills, with technical lead Gary Short looking at their form and technique along with time of flight (ToF) and horizontal displacement (HD). Elements of physical preparation and mindset were also assessed during the day.
Both programmes will support and develop gymnasts and coaches with technical leadership from Gary Short (British Gymnastics performance pathway coach) and integrated support from Scottish Gymnastics physical preparation lead, Paul Coyle.
The focus of the programmes is to help gymnasts develop the technical skills, physical qualities and training behaviours that will aid them to success on the British pathway.
Congratulations to the selected gymnasts and their coaches.
