Coaching Youth Gymnastics covers all the basics of coaching and gymnastics and written in a concise style that is particularly suitable for newly qualified gymnastics coaches.
This unique book offers a blend of general coaching and sport-specific information and covers techniques and skills for bars, floor, beam and vault.
These disciplines are presented by skill level rather than by age groups and are applicable to both boys and girls where appropriate. Information on falling and landing as well as suggestions on activities, conditioning and games are provided.
With content aimed at developing the coach, not just skills and drills, Coaching Youth Gymnastics will help to create an environment that promotes learning, enjoyment, safety and motivation for youth gymnasts aged between six and fourteen years.
