The Gymnastics Programme Structure is constructed in order to develop each of the gymnasts.
The Glasgow School of Sport Gymnastics programme prides itself on mastering the underpinning basic fundamentals necessary to become an elite senior gymnast. We do this by running a holistic programme that encompasses; General physical preparation; Conditioning and flexibility; Perfection of basic and fundamental gymnastic skills; Choreography; Advanced skill development; and Competition preparation.
These fundamentals ensure every Glasgow School of Sport gymnast develops the skillset necessary to meet their full potential, core to all gymnastic disciplines undertaken at the school of sport. Our coaches at the School of Sport work closely with Club Coaches to develop individualised training programmes with the main focus, to complement and support the gymnast's progression through the national performance pathways at both Great Britain and National level.
The Glasgow School of Sport works alongside National Coaches to ensure gymnasts wellbeing and training loads are monitored to best support gymnasts on their sporting and educational journey. Moreover, specialist guest coaches and international training camps are built into our programme in order to give Glasgow School of Sport pupils a winning advantage when striving to reach and maximise their potential.
Central to our ethos of developing performance people at Glasgow School of sport, our gymnastics programe nurtures the performance habits required for career longevity, by engaging with our support services of strength and conditioning, sports science testing and monitoring, nutrition, sport psychology and physiotherapy all allowing for interventions should they be needed to support each gymnasts journey.
