Shaping Skills with Drills
A problem skill for many gymnasts is the flyaway (backward somersault) from a bar. This dismount is physically and technically simple â€” but psychologically challenging due to the risk of hitting the bar with the feet.
Coach Rachael Tart from Funtastics Gymnastics in Couer d’Alene, Idaho showed me this nifty drill. It’s a safe, fun way to introduce the feeling of flyaway with young kids.
