Description

Bars, floor, balance beam - its all here. Developed by ASEP in co-operation with USA Gymnastics, "Coaching Youth Gymnastics" covers all the basics of coaching and gymnastics in a concise, easy to read style. Techniques and skills for bars, floor, balance beam and vault are presented by skill level rather than by age groups and are applicable to both boys and girls where appropriate. With content aimed at developing the entire coach, beyond just skills and drills, "Coaching Youth Gymnastics" will help you to create an environment that promotes learning, enjoyment, safety and motivation for youth gymnasts.
