Hi Crawley gymnasts! Did you check out my number 1 backward roll tip last week? Check out my next tip here. Oh and I'm coming to see you next week!! Can't wait to meet you all!! - Jen
Wohoo for sunshine! ☀️☀️☀️ please send your bouncing gymnasts along with a full water bottle as it gets very hot in the hall! Sophie will make sure they have allocated drink slots to stop them over heating 😊🤸🏻♀️🤸🏾♂️
So who used Coach Jen's Backward roll tip? Maybe you can show coach Sophie tomorrow? If you haven't seen it just click the video on the page and have a go!
See you tomorrow!
Hi Crawley gymnasts! Do you struggle with backward rolls? Check out our number one tip:
#TipTuesday quick tip on hand positioning in cartwheels. There are zillions of ways of doing cartwheels! But we like to teach one main way with the second hand turned in, as it helps us learn other related skills - like cartwheels on the beam and round offs.
#TipTuesday a skill our Crawley gymnasts will be working on soon - bridges and kick overs. Club leader Jen has blocks to help, sorry parents if this becomes your sofa!
#ThrowBackThursday guess the year! This was a Herts Grades competition. Coach Sophie in this photo is now our Affinity Crawley club leader and two of the gymnas...ts are now coaches! (BTW we're making the Affinity 'A' here. We went through a phase of doing this after changing our name in 2012).
It's #TipTuesday! Continuing the handstands from last week, here's a great tip to overcome one of the problems gymnasts face when learning this skill. Our Crawley gymnasts will be learning handstands this week so make sure you've watched this video ready for class on Thursday! See you then!
One for our Crawley gymnasts I think!
It's #TipTuesday! We're sharing short tip videos for some of your favourite skills. Here's club leader Jen back at HQ with a couple of handstand tips. What skills would you like us to feature? Comment below and we'll make it happen.
