Picking up where Developing Yurchenko Vaulting left off. Now they can flip, NOW WHAT? Drills for layouts through twisting.

Roundoff entry vaults have become more and more common but there are still some major areas of concern. I have a series of drills and skills which will lay the base for success with Round off entry vaults. Drills from teaching a good round off to their first flip.

  • This lecture should pick up where the other left off. This is after your athlete has some good slid basics and is ready to expand.
  • Just some thoughts on any backward flipping vault. I generally do not teach tucks and if I do it is an “open” tuck. I teach a pike first and try to transition into a layout ASAP. I feel that all vaults have to set for the layout and then you can choose the position. I probably hand spot more than a lot of people but when I spot I am not throwing them through the skill. I am spotting for body shape
  • If something hurts, they won’t do it. During the learning phase of ANY vault use padding, extra sting mats, mini tramps, what ever.
  • This is what I use. It is important to have a plan. My goal is that they are working into loose foam or on other drills where they want to be about 1- 2 years.
  • A lot of times kids do one thing better than another. If you just let them play, they will be able to teach you a thing or 2.
  • Talk about plyometrics and how much to do
