As part of Scottish Gymnastics’ commitment to develop Scottish gymnasts to British and World high performance levels, we recognise the vital role that personal coaches and parents play in a gymnast’s development. With this in mind, we are committed to supporting gymnasts, coaches and parents on their gymnastics journey and the performance curriculum is about developing knowledge and awareness on areas of performance that can play a significant role in helping a gymnast maximise their potential.
The following resources are from workshops that have been delivered for personal coaches, parents and gymnasts who are part of the National Performance Programme (NPP) or Performance Pathway Programme (PPP).
Covid-19 resources for athletes
Working in partnership with the sportscotland institute of sport experts, we are pleased to be able to share a couple of key documents which cover some key points to remember for athletes around hygiene, sleep, mental wellbeing, and nutrition. These are in addition to NHS and Government guidelines on how to stay safe.
