A Note From Coach Mark
Summer is almost here!! As much as I love the competitive cheer season, I share equal excitement for the summer months. Like many of you, the summer allows extra time to spend with family and friends and the warmer weather and longer days make everything seem easier.
I also enjoy coaching during the summer months because the athletes have less on their plates and seem to have more energy. This is the perfect time to focus on tumbling - fix bad habits and learn new skills. The tumbling schedule this summer will remain the same (with the exception of the Black class on Mondays) and we encourage athletes to take advantage of the extra time in their schedule to tumble as much as possible and advance skills this summer. With that said, I would like to take a minute to explain a common misunderstanding: often athletes get frustrated after a tumbling class where they feel like they did not make any progress "stuck in drills." Drills are just as important - if not MORE important - than coach spotting. Technique is so important in gaining or mastering a tumbling skill and the fastest way to attain this is via drills. For example, a perfect handstand into forward roll is the basis for a punch front. Parents, please help me remind your athletes that the coaches are never wasting their time - all drills lead to progress.
We hope to see our tumbling classes full this summer but more importantly, we hope you have a wonderful summer full of friends and family!
