    Nastia Liukin Comeback?!

    She has probably done more than you think. She never fully walked away from the sport and has stayed in shape so it will not be as hard for her to comeback as it was for some others. I'm excited to see what she can do!!!!

    Managing the Membership of Sports Organization: The Legalities of Banning a Member

    Here is where I think Sports Organizations need to do a better job of.... if a Coach gets fired or resigns from a gym after allegations of abuse are made and no charges were ever filed for whatever reason they can easily go to another gym and get hired without a word about it. So if they...

    back pullover

    Congratulations on finding something your daughter loves to do and wanting to spend time with her while she does it! As a coach we don't usually encourage coaching at home, but most gymnasts are going to do gymnastics at home no matter what the coach says and if you can help her and make sure...

    Help!!! Floor Music Question!

    If a routine fits a gymnast it will be performed better and score better. I don't think it has as much to do with a judges preference but has more to do with how the routine will be perceived. An 11 year old doing a hip hop routine will be very hard unless they have been dancing for years...

    Drills needed to improve Scale

    Check her standing leg, her foot should be turned a little bit, if it is turned in she will roll onto the outside of her foot and wiggle around. The standing leg should be perfectly straight, you should be able to see the muscle in her thigh. Another thing to check is her arms and shoulders...

    Do you ever wonder WHy they got THAT score?

    Kat- this is great I'm sure the parents are enjoying it. I am wondering if the parents are okay with it, if you can post the critique along with the video. As a coach I would love to see what specific deductions and how much you are taking for certain things.

    Another Beam Question

    There is no rule as to which one goes first, but it is easier to miss the connection going BHS first. Generally moving from the slow skill to the "flight" skill gives the gymnast more control and can stay on. I think they are a little more lenient with the connection for level 7, but the rule...

    What can she do to score higher

    A 7.0 does seem low, and it is hard to see the little details on the video. Some things to keep in mind, any extra steps (for example after the leaps) are a .1 for each step, each kick is deducted separately, a lever needs to be shown going in and out of the handstands. Anytime a gymnast is...

    Some unusual coaching concerns

    If you weren't worried about the girls getting comfortable at the top you wouldn't be a good coach. Depending on the age of the girls, I would sit them down and congratulate them on how well they are doing and then remind them that it is not always going to be this easy. Let them know they...
