Women in Sport

Gymnastics presents a unique and powerful opportunity to support girls to develop a strong love of sport and other physical activity at a young age and Gymnastics Ireland is committed to developing and delivering positive experiences and opportunities for all involved in gymnastics, including our teenage girls.
