Gymnastics in a Safe Environment (Safeguarding)
Gymnastics is a brilliant sport which can have a positive influence on children and young people. As the governing body for the sport in Scotland, we want them to stay safe and have fun while taking part.
We work with our registered clubs to support and promote a safe and rewarding environment in which young people can develop their skills and confidence.
Scottish Gymnastics is committed to developing policies, procedures and coaching qualifications as well as providing help, guidance, education and training opportunities for clubs.
Our robust safeguarding procedures mean that all registered coaches and everyone working with children in clubs, such as helpers, team managers, chaperones, judges, and officials, are PVG checked through Scottish Gymnastics and undergo mandatory safeguarding training.
You can find out more on the dedicated safeguarding section of our website.
To better understand, we would encourage all parents and carers to ask about the club's safeguarding and read 10 questions parents should ask.
