Getting to know your team.

    Our young coaches

     We have three young coaches, all previous Hillfoots gymnasts that are working along side our team. These young coaches have all attended a learn to coach course with Scottish gymnastics where they learned all about the basic skills and handling gymnasts. Included in their course was the safe in your hands, a little insight to safe guarding.

    Emma Cairns, started at Hillfoots age 5 until the age of 8. She then started training again after a break from the sport at 11yrs and continued until was 14 where she became interested in helping coach the younger ones. We asked Emma what did you enjoy about being a gymnast at Hillfoots? She answered " I enjoyed the friendly coaches and they didn't make you feel singled out when doing skills and i enjoyed meeting new pals."
