Gymnastics Canada – Edouard Iarov

Since I first met him in 1994, Edouard Iarov has been the coach who most influences my coaching philosophy. He is a coaching genius. An original.

Iarov, Canada’s Men’s National Coach, helped teach a recent coaching course. I will be posting short video clips of his presentations. But Men’s Artistic coaches may also be interested to see Edouard’s “technical testing program” for high performance boys. It’s posted on Gymnastics Canada:

One of the coaches at the course asked me why Claude Pelletier, Canada’s Women’s National Coach, had not presented. I don’t know.

Claude was excellent the last time I saw him teach at a National Coaching Certification course. But that was many years ago. We need you back, Claude.
