I am a member of a college club NAIGC gymnastics team, and we have a few members who are new to the sport that wish to learn back handsprings. I have previous experience in teaching back handsprings, but only with gymnasts who were smaller than me. However, they are taller than I am and I cannot support their full body weight. We also do not have access to barrels. We do have access to all basic equipment, landing mats, and a pit. No trampoline. Any advice on drills or spotting recommendations on how I can help these athletes?
