Tumbling National Talent Development Programme - British Gymnastics

Tumbling National Talent Development Programme

The Tumbling Performance Pathway Programme has been designed with the following specific targets in mind:

  • Increasing the number of gymnasts able to access FIG age group competition structure, thus strengthening the support base of the National Squad and GB teams.
  • Developing coaches within clubs engaged with the programme so they can better support the long term development of their gymnasts.
  • Increasing the number of clubs entering gymnasts in the British Championships
  • Supporting the National Coaches in delivering training to the National Squads
  • Supporting the National Coaches attending international competitions with GB teams.

 

What does it look like?

Creation of an additional two-tiered squad development programme directly underpinning the existing National Squad.
