This dedication has also been recognised in several cases in the annual Luton Sports Network Awards. Our coaches are drawn from retired gymnasts, parents of past or present gymnasts, young leaders and individuals wishing to get involved in the sport. All coaches have British Gymnastics coaching qualifications or are being mentored for such qualifications. All have the relevant Child Safeguarding qualifications. SALTO is committed to the development of its coaches and makes it possible for them to attend courses to further enhance their skills for the benefit of the gymnasts. The club continues to compete regularly in competitions at all levels in all disciplines of the sport and over the years has had winners at every level from Novice to Club, County, Regional, National and even internationally. The club holds its own annual competition also giving all recreational club members the opportunity to win a medal. This experience gives these gymnasts a tremendous boost in confidence and all are bursting with pride at their achievements. The gymnasts are also encouraged to participate in a Christmas Show and annual awards evening to demonstrate their skills to family and friends in a non-competitive fun environment. SALTO Gymnastics Club has come a long way since being founded by a merger in 1995.
