Fong – teaching future skills

Al Fong:

It’s not unusual for us to teach future skills to our athletes when they don’t need them at the level they’re competing, especially during the off season. It keeps gymnastics interesting and fresh for the athlete and the coach. Very important to prevent “burn out”.

Less frustration and safer. We can’t continue to train athletes to reach their true potential if they quit or get hurt. It’s all about keeping them in the game.
