Minute's Silence

Portsmouth Gymnastics and Trampolining Club very sadly lost one of it’s members a couple of months ago, and we will therefore be observing a minute’s silence at the event. This will take place at 9am on Saturday 4th February, straight after the first march ons.

We would like to request that you inform all your team members of this, and that it is observed with complete respect from everybody.


As per regulation GYM 5, all institutions must bring an appropriately qualified coach: 

GYM 5 Coaches Each institution/Playing Entity is required to bring to the Championships an appropriately qualified coach, or coaches, who will take responsibility for their gymnast(s) while they are competing. Coaches must be British Gymnastics qualified to a minimum of level 2, with the correct skill set for the competing gymnast(s) for which they are responsible. A gymnast cannot be their own coach.
