    For Coaches Poor Form on Cast Handstands

    Is it acceptable to allow gymnasts to do less than perfect form when learning their cast handstands? Backstory: I have a couple of girls going to 6 in the Spring and they "kind of" have cast handstands (both do straight body and both are very strong). I feel like lately all I do is spot them on...

    WAG Straddle casts, and kips vs. pike casts, pike kip.

    Is there an advantage to kipping, and casting with the legs together, vs. straddle? It look pretty to straddle cast HS, but is it harder to pike HS? What is more desirable?
