Each year the Disability Gymnastics Technical Committee produces its handbook, and 2015 is no different. Our website makes it easier than ever to quickly find the information you need about our competition programme. However, the handbook is the one file that contains all the information brought together into one place. You can download it using the link below and print it as needed. Any revisions throughout the year will be noted on this page with the latest version available to download.
Typical information includes:
I have been involved with Disability Gymnastics for many years and find it the best discipline to be involved in. Yes it is challenging and it has its ups and downs, but at the end of the day it is about helping young people to achieve things they never thought possible.
I feel the time is right to move on and arrange more competitions. Although many work in General Gymnastics, there are those that prefer to stay with other disabled people. It is also time to see about setting up regional squads. Initially these will be combined Artistic (male and female) and Rhythmic. The aim being to come together to train and help each other with new NDP programmes and competition formats.
I would also like to arrange workshops on topics thought to be necessary by coaches within the region.
There has been an increase in young people joining gymnastics this year and I hope that 2013 sees an increase in participation within the London region. We have the expertise in the region, it is there for everyone to use. Let’s use it and keep London as one of the best regions for disability awareness and involvement.
The Disability Technical Committee is made up of a dedicated team of volunteers who serve on the committee for a period of three years. The Chairman is the only elected position, with the rest of the positions being by appointment of the Chairman.
