    I'm new to this site and the artistic world (power tumbling was my thing) so I hope someone can give me some advice. Our club closes down for 4 weeks over the summer which seems like a long time.

    For Coaches Summer training Hours

    As a coach I am wondering about twice a day trainings for the summer. Do a lot of gyms do this in the off season or stick to the common four hour a day training. This is of course for optional gymnasts.
