Are you are aged between 10 and 24 years and want to be the voice of young people in gymnastics in Scotland?
Scottish Gymnastics wants to establish a formal group to represent the views our younger membership, as 80% are under the age of 18.
The forum would meet with Scottish Gymnastics staff and stakeholders to give their views on specific topics, such as gymnastics pathways, coaching and judging, clubs and safeguarding, and communications and social media.
The group will have up to 12 children and young people aged between 10 and 24 who will be identified through a formal recruitment process. These will be two-year positions, from 2019 to 2021.
As the face and voice of the young people in our sport, it is essential we have a range of experiences and gymnastics journeys within the group to represent our membership, and we aim to recruit a minimum of one primary school-age person.
We will hold up to four meetings each year across the country on weekends or holidays to minimise clashes with training, coaching, school, university, and work commitments. Scottish Gymnastics will cover travel expenses in line with our volunteer expenses policy for getting to meetings, and will provide appropriate catering.
So if you fancy taking on this important role to help inform and influence the aims, values and development of Scottish Gymnastics, we would love to hear from you.

And if you're under 18 years-old, please make sure your parent/guardian/carer reads the information too!
