National Gymnastics Awards Programme

Progressive learning system for the teaching of gymnastics in clubs

About the programme

The National Gymnastics Awards Programme is designed to provide a comprehensive structured and progressive learning system for the teaching of artistic gymnastics in clubs. We are passionate about gymnastics and all the ways it enhances lives.  This system is for a whole range of abilities and is designed to try and help keep kids in sport for as long as possible, whatever their level.
NatGAP is about quality and excellence – in content, products and service.

The programme has been produced by experienced gymnastics coaches and seeks to prepare children for fundamental skills and elements right from the start of their gymnastics learning up to FIG four piece competition.

The coaching programme consists of five schemes that guide the gymnasts through the various stages of learning on different apparatus and rewards their efforts at strategic intervals with professionally designed awards. It is designed to encourage participation in and continuation of the sport through the use of clear goals and objectives and helps clubs give structure for their coaches while offering something different for their participants.

In order to use the schemes you must register your club with NatGAP. You will be sent a password to access the online shop which provides the items required to run the scheme.
