Teaching HANGS

Stationary Positions:

1) Supports
2) Hangs
3) Balances

Hangs are those activities where the centre of mass is suspended directly below the base of support. They are the most stable of the stationary positions.

Safety first. Plan hanging challenges in safe situations. Keep them low but physically demanding.

The classic coaching mistake in Gymnastics is forcing kids to climb high on a rope before they are physically and psychologically ready.

Gymnasts should be smiling … even when upside down. 🙂
