I've mentioned before that another coach and I took over a HS gym team last season, one with very limited gym experience. The ones who have had some training either received it in the cheer world or at local rec centers with inadequate progressions. We've still managed to make quite a few changes with these girls, but bhs are a constant struggle. We were hoping that with increased training, verbal corrections, better ROs, improved strength, etc. But we have seen very limited success with bhs, I think a lot of that is because the habits have been so deeply ingrained and are just incredibly hard to unlearn. Compounding the problem is the fact that these are high schoolers making it very difficult to hand spot them through the skill slowly, highlighting each position. The big problems- very slow, heavy bhs, feet a mile apart through the whole skill (from prep through to ending), cheer "hops" forward before the skill, the list just goes on. It's almost like a herd of elephants doing bhs- and these are not large girls! We do not have a pit, tramp, spring floor, port-a-pit/resi (we do have a resi type mat, but it's only about 8" (can be folded to about 16"). Any creative drills, conditioning, ideas, etc. with limited resources and that wouldn't injure the HC and myself would be greatly appreciated! I've searched the forum, but most of the tips were more for little ones where hand spotting and stopping the skill is more practical. Or corrections for just learned bhs, rather than ones that have been done incorrectly for years. Thanks!
