Sussex Gymnastics needs as many clubs as possible to get involved and help promote gymnastics in Sussex.

Without volunteers, our sport would not survive! Make the effort today!

There is always something to do; either representing the interests of one of the Disciplines or one of the Clubs. Helping out need not take a lot of time; Sussex Gymnastics holds very few meetings each year, and there's always a team of people around to advise and help out. Committee members do not need to be a coach, a senior gymnast or parent would be just as good and often better, especially for the "officers" listed here.

Here are the roles of the people involved in the management of Sussex Gymnastics. These Sussex Gymnastics committee members are elected at the AGM in May, with our next AGM being held on 7th May 2025.


  • Chair meetings of the Committee and the Association
  • Represent the Association at functions/meetings that the Association has been invited to
  • Act as spokesperson for the Association when necessary.


  • Act as "chair" in the absence of the elected chair-person.


  • Supervise the financial affairs of the Association
  • Keep proper accounts that show all monies collected and paid out by the Association
  • Prepare accounts which must be audited for approval at the AGM.


  • Take and keep minutes of meetings
  • Prepare the agenda for meetings of the Committee and the Association in consultation with the Chairperson
  • Maintain the membership list
  • Deal with correspondence
  • Collect and circulate any relevant information within the Association.
