My flyaways have been great in the past, until yesterday. My coach was gone for 5 days and we didn’t work flyaways so now I don’t tap at all, tap too late, or close my shoulders. I keep hitting my toes on the bar. My tap swings without the flyaways are good, but when I connect it it all messes up. When I try to make the same tap swing, it feels to awkward and I mess up. Pleaseeeee reply if you have any tips!!!!

For your safety and ours you must be sixteen to join the Chalk Bucket. There is a reason we asked your age when you registered. Please ask your coach for help with your skills.
