Following the approval of the new Technical Committee Regulations, we have exciting opportunities to join our seven discipline specific committees.

Specific focus will be given to the performance pathway, coach and judge development and the Scottish national events programme. This will be done by working in conjunction and cooperation with Scottish Gymnastics board and staff.

There are seven technical committees: acrobatic, men’s, rhythmic, TeamGym, trampoline & double-mini trampoline, tumbling, and women’s.

Each committee has four members, you can find the role descriptors on our website here.

Technical committee will meet a minimum of four times per year and can include virtual meetings. Scottish Gymnastics staff representatives for each discipline will also attend each committee meeting.

There is also the addition of a new joint technical committee which will meet a minimum of twice a year to ensure the activities of Scottish Gymnastics and all the disciplines are coordinated and to act as a forum for discussion on all technical committee matters.
