Want to join us?    

We welcome gymnasts from other clubs who want to join CETC. We won't ask them to come for a 'trial' - just book in for a taster session to try out a class before joining us - or just apply to join straight away.
However, we would insist that they inform & discuss the move fully with their current coach, before committing to join CETC.
We would be courteously obliged to contact the gymnast’s previous club to inform them of a transfer to CETC.
Similarly, if a member of CETC wishes to transfer to another club, the same courtesy applies, and we would expect the matter to be fully discussed with the CETC coach, the gymnast & their parents, before any decision to transfer is made.
Coaches invest a great deal of time & commitment in working with their gymnasts – sometimes over a period of several years -  and it can be particularly upsetting for the coach when a gymnast leaves to join another club,
especially
if they & their parents have not discussed the transfer with the coach.

For further information, or to discuss joining, contact the Club Secretary at
secretary@cityofedinburghtrampolineclub.co.uk  or Head Coach at head.coach@cityofedinburghtrampolineclub.co.uk

 CHANGES TO UKCC SUBSIDY FUNDING

Posted by SG 21/4/17     

There have been changes made to UKCC subsidy funding for 2017-18 in direct response to a decrease in National Lottery investment. 
Sportscotland are committed to supporting coaches at all levels and therefore have spread the reduction across all levels of the coaching pathway. 
Scottish Gymnastics understand that this will likely have a significant impact on our coaches and we are committed to working closely with you to ensure we implement these changes in the smoothest way possible.
 
THE CHANGES ARE AS FOLLOWS AS OF 1 JUNE 2017

  • UKCC L1 grant aid to be 40% of total cost or £75 (whichever is the lowest). Therefore, coaches will receive £75 subsidy (a reduction of £25 (previously £100))
  • UKCC L2 grant aid to be 60% of total cost or £350 (whichever is the lowest). Therefore, coaches will receive £312 subsidy (a reduction of £52 (previously £364))

 ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

  • Any UKCC applications which have already been received by sportscotland (prior to the four week deadline and with the course held before 1 June 2017) will be processed with the existing level of subsidy. 
  • Applications which are already in the system and are for courses after 1 June 2017 will be processed  on the new level of subsidy.

OPEN WARM UP’S - MARCH 2012

The Trampoline Technical Panel has decided to adopt the “Open Warm Up’s” system as used by British Gymnastics at their Assessment Days and Gala Weekends.
This means that each group of gymnasts are given a set time in which to warm up. The time is set according to the number of gymnasts in the group and the Level at which they are bouncing.
This does not mean that it is a free for all. The warm ups will still be managed by Marshalls to ensure the system is not being abused. The maximum time gymnasts should be on the trampoline for a single warm up is 30 seconds. The Chair of Judges (CoJ) can impose a penalty of 0.3 marks on any one who stays on longer.
At the start of each flight the CoJ and the Marshalls can adjust the warm up time depending on the number of drop outs from a group. For instance if a group has 12 entries and are allocated a warm up time of 30 minutes and only 8 gymnasts turn up then the time will be adjusted down to 20 minutes.
As each gymnast is offered two trampolines on which to bounce then if they all choose to bounce on the same trampoline then they will get fewer warm ups than if the gymnasts were split evenly between the two trampolines.
Coaches are reminded that this is a warm up period and not an opportunity for them to coach their gymnast.
Could coaches also remind their gymnasts that there is a warm up area behind the judge’s platform for gymnasts to do warm up exercises on the floor?
This is not a play area for the siblings of gymnasts who are not competing.
Coaches should also note that groups some will warm up during the time that the Officials take their lunch.
Marshalls should ensure that at least one of them is present during lunch time warm ups (i.e. take their lunch at separate times).
The gymnasts are allowed a “one touch warm up” before their first routine, but there is no warm up between the first and second routines. At Levels where the gymnasts do a third routine, a one touch routine is allowed before their final routine.

MEDAL PRESENTATIONS


The Trampoline Technical Panel has decided to use the “Rolling Medal Presentation” system as used by British Gymnastics at their Gala Weekends.

This means that 5 minutes after a Class finishes (e.g. Level H U11) the results will be displayed. This will be followed by the presentation of the Medals to the first three gymnasts in that Class by the CoJ of the panel. The medals will be presented at the front of the Arena out with the competition area. It is the gymnast’s responsibility to ensure they are present and suitably dressed at the time of the presentation.
