There are so many ways you can be involved in gymnastics without being a gymnast!
We have courses so you can learn to coach or instruct at every level of the sport in a variety of disciplines. Starting as a helper, you can become an assistant coach, then head coach and a high-performance coach if you have aspirations to aim as high as you can go. You are key in putting the enjoyment, needs and rights of gymnasts at the heart of activities, allowing them to thrive.
Our busy calendar of competitive events could not run without judges. From club competitions to international championships, you can move through the judge education pathway to become a brevet judge and travel the world! Whatever level you’re involved in, you’re an integral part of the gymnastics family and the gymnastics pathway which offers opportunities to progress through competitions and programmes.
Every Scottish Gymnastics club has a safeguarding officer. You must be aged 21 years or over. If in a university club, you must be at least a second-year student or aged 21 years or over. This is a rewarding role where you help your club maintain the highest wellbeing and protection standards and systems and ensure that gymnastics is enjoyable, safe and open to everyone.
Your club needs you! Examples of officials are managers, administrators, or secretaries. You help the club run smoothly and play your part in ensuring an uplifting experience for all in gymnastics. Some roles may be paid, and others may be on a voluntary basis. You can find out more from your local club and the roles currently on offer on our vacancies page.
