Hello!

My gym is currently using Zoom calls to connect the gymnasts to their coaches to do short workouts and provide homework to their girls. I am looking for suggestions for homework to give my Xcel Gold girls (ages 9-13) - physical, emotional, and mental homework. Today I gave them 4 assignments:

1. Create 3 goals for yourself for next season
2. Follow the 2 of the conditioning videos posted by our gym on YouTube
3. Imagine yourself performing one new skill perfectly 10 times every night before bed
4. Find one new hobby to try (whether it be gymnastics related or not) before our next meeting

I am looking for more things like this to do. Possibly having them study one Olympic or National level gymnast, creating a goals chart, etc. Does anyone have any suggestions, or are doing something similar with their gymnasts that they would like to add? I am trying to keep the girls stimulated as much as possible during this concerning and anxiety-provoking time. Please let me know if you have any suggestions!
