1. Keep it short
2. Use a positive frame of vocabulary
3. Use very descriptive language
4. Use neutral tone / body language
5. Critique technique, not the gymnast

One thought on “Coach Kyle – making Gymnastics corrections”

  1. I think it is much more important that gymnasts get more aware of what they are doing. Instead of always giving corrections;
    – ask gymnast how it felt
    – ask specific question (how do you think your legs were in the handstand)
    – ask what do you think you can do better

    This makes them much more aware of what they are doing and will make improvement much quicker!
