So there’s a hurricane coming for where I live (only a category one though so hopefully it won’t be bad) so if the power goes out I can’t blog… so sorry if there’s a lack of blogging in the next day or two!
Haha thanks :)
These are BY FAR my favorite:
Another site that’s pretty awesome:
Also, just youtubeing has great results. You can usually ask for a download from the poster of the video and if not use an audio ripper site like Keepvid You copy and paste the url of the youtube video, select mp3 download and then put the file onto itunes. (Then burn it to a cd and yay! you have floor music haha)
Hope you find one you like! Let me know if you have any other questions!
The Daily Gymie
ps. be careful with keepvid, I’m not sure how legal it is 0.o
I don’t know what to do… I miss gymnastics so much so I’m tempted to accept, it’s also just a couple of times a week so it’s not a big commitment, it’s not elite gymnastics so I pretty much have to teach cartwheels and handstands but I’m not good with kids so I don’t know if I can be a good (or at least decent) coach, it’s not like I hate children xD I just don’t know how to interact with them
Well, when I started coaching little ones, I was REALLY nervous. I felt ridiculous thinking “why the heck do a bunch of five year olds scare me?” haha :)
What I would do is learn all of the technical points of small skills that you will be teaching (hand stands, cartwheels, casts and what not). Then think of putting it into ways that a child would understand. (and you live in Italy right? so you’re going to have to come up with the wording yourself sorry :( )
Another helpful thing is to observe a class. See what kind of terminology the little ones are use to hearing, what events you rotate to, what skills are the main focus of the class and things like that.
Also check out “how to” videos. These seems to be helpful
Lastly, just be confident. You aren’t “training” these gymnasts you are only throwing down some stepping stones. The main focus is to get their energy out and have fun!
Hope I helped!
