British Gymnastics has launched a new disability gymnastics programme,

designed to create more opportunities for disabled people to take part in the sport.

The programme will create and support a network of gymnastics "hub clubs", with the aim of empowering coaches to deliver better quality opportunities for disabled people.

It's hoped the programme will also raise the profile of disability gymnastics; increase the demand for gymnastics by disabled people; and enable disabled people to become involved in the sport.

The initiative will be divided into three separate strands - I'M Inclusive; I'M Involved and I'M Inspired.

I'M Inclusive will see British Gymnastics appoint 10 Disability Hub Clubs in England, which will be recognised for their disability expertise and great track record in providing quality gymnastics opportunities for disabled people.

The 10 Hub Clubs will be contracted to deliver and coordinate a range of activities and education support for clubs and coaches.

Linked to that, the I'M Involved strand will see the 10 Hub Clubs throughout England deliver a series of engaging gymnastics taster events which appeal to a wide variety of disabled people.

The aim of the events is to allow disabled people to come and try gymnastics for the first time; get excited about what gymnastics has to offer and get involved in gymnastics at their local club.

The third strand, I'M INspired, has been designed to promote and celebrate great achievement, inspirational stories and the huge benefits that gymnastics has to offer.

The plan is to promote great achievement in disability gymnastics, inspiring disabled people to enjoy all gymnastics has to offer and reach their potential through our exciting sport.
