  • Code of Points, leotard rules, and named skills.
  • Why don’t they use the 10 anymore?
  • Why are leaps named for animals, how do I tell them apart, and no really WHYYYYYY?
  • How do I tell the difference between a split leap full and a switch leap full?
  • How do I tell the difference between those one-arm pirouettes—the Ono, Healy, and Ling?

Hardy Fink – Be Gymnast Centered

The second series of FIG online coaching seminars has begun.

I highly recommend this presentation.

Gymnastics is under review worldwide. We hear much about the problems.

Hardy Fink offers solutions.

Hardy has attended more World Championships & Olympics than anyone else. He’s the principle author of the FIG Age Group Programmes for all disciplines. And he’s led more FIG coach education courses worldwide than anyone else.

We should listen and learn.
