    WAG Preschool gymnastics program

    Hi! So I've been coaching preschool gymnastics for about 7 years and the program at my gym has changed quite a bit. Before, for 3-4 year olds we used to do three seperate circuit. It was so that there were less kids with each coach. One was more focused on bar/hanging skills, one on...

    WAG When your athlete gets injured

    Hey, So I have been coaching for six years now and none of my gymnasts ever got really injured. Except last Sunday. She over rotated a front somersault hit her head on her knee resulting in an orbital bone fracture and a concussion. I know it was an accident and I couldn’t have done anything...

    WAG Back Tuck Help

    I am aware that I am throwing myself backwards. When someone is spotting me, I am able to be way more vertical but I am too afraid to do it alone because I'm struggling to rotate when I jump straight up.
