Welfare and Safety

Prioritising the welfare, safety, and rights of every participant is fundamental. This commitment ensures that everyone involved in gymnastics can pursue their passion in a secure and supportive environment. Collaborating with the gymnastics community is vital to ensure that the principles of Safe Sport are embraced and practiced at all levels of the sport.

Safe Sport Framework

We've developed a Safe Sport Framework providing a clear and comprehensive guide for IGA's vision and commitment to Safe Sport. Such frameworks help outline policies, education, and advocacy initiatives to strengthen the sport's administration and delivery. Advocating for Safe Sport within the gymnastics community and beyond is important. It ensures that everyone involved understands the importance of creating a respectful and welcoming environment.

Policy Initiatives

Establishing and enforcing policies that address misconduct, abuse, and inappropriate behaviour within the sport is essential for maintaining a safe environment.


Providing education and training for athletes, coaches, officials, and administrators is crucial. This helps raise awareness about safe sport practices, reporting mechanisms, and appropriate conduct.
