Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
We are committed to the principles and practices of equality of opportunity to all. Our aim is to provide a safe and inclusive sport where everyone can reach their own personal podium. Equality, diversity and inclusion should be considered within all levels and aspects of our sport to create opportunities for everyone to have an opportunity and benefit from what our sport had to offer.
If your aim is to compete at the Olympics Games or Commonwealth games or achieve a somersault or flic, take part in competitions or festivals, or enjoy taking part in fun activities with your friends’ gymnastics has something for everyone.
The aim of developing an inclusive sport is identified within our strategy.
Welsh Gymnastics recognise that to truly deliver on our aim for everyone to feel included and receive a positive experience within our sport our plans must take into account every level of the organisation.
