Jake Dalton – tap swing

Great drill by a great gymnast. Jake was demonstrating for coach Dave Juszczyk.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

Don’t expect your beginners to swing like Jake. Older, taller gymnasts with long limbs have a biomechanical advantage. It’s easier to snap a longer whip than a shorter one.

Be patient with your shortest, youngest kids. Swing technique takes time.
