I was a gymnast for years and have lived and breathed gymnastics for over 12 years. I did not have the opportunity to begin coaching until about October and currently coach beginners up to level 5 and occasionally help out with some level 7/8s. I've gained quite a bit of hands on experience to combine with what I knew from my days as a gymnast, but I feel that I have plenty of room to improve. So I was wondering, are there any really good coaching resources out there that you would highly recommend? Any websites, books, videos, articles, etc. would be great. I really want to be the best coach possible for the girls I work with and be able to take them up to higher levels, eventually being able to focus on option levels. I'm finishing up my semester in a few days and would like to spend the summer reading up on drills, skill progressions, conditioning programs, and all of that fun stuff so I would really appreciate any input. Thanks so much!
