How to become a gymnastics volunteer

Can’t touch your toes? No sweat. Gymnastics has volunteering opportunities to suit everyone – hands on and behind the scenes.

Train to be an instructor

Learn to give fun and safe gym sessions for all ages. Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can opt for extra courses like disability gymnastics, freestyle and trampolining – or move on to judge competitions. Read more about becoming a gym coach.

Volunteer at an event

Gymfest is the annual gymnastics display event run by Scottish Gymnastics. Join the Gymfest team and help make sure it all runs as smoothly as a Beth Tweddle dismount.

For more events, check out GymFusion, the British Gymnastics national festivals programme or their national and international events calendar.
