Scottish Gymnastics has a 12-year strategy focussing on a ‘strong Scottish Gymnastics, inspiring and nurturing emerging talent’. This defines our goals and operations as a governing body, ensuring we are working with and for our members to help them achieve their ambitions. 

As part of our new approach to artistic gymnastics, we are recruiting two lead coaches - one in men’s and one in women’s - to work alongside the national technical advisor, performance and support staff in supporting gymnasts and coaches as part of the national performance programme.  

The national performance programme for artistic gymnastics will see men’s artistic and women’s artistic working closely together in a ‘one team, one vision, one goal’ approach and the role will be key in supporting collaboration between disciplines as well as between coaches and gymnasts.

This is a unique opportunity to be supported in your coaching journey with mentoring and support from national technical advisor, Scott Hann MBE and to be part of the team leading and developing artistic gymnastics in Scotland.
