But, all the coaches know all aspects of all the events for their team/group. So if you decide to coach in the boys[ Read More... ]

Does that mean that realistically I should choose which events I like the most overall and teach based on that? Also, will being a gymnastics coach allow me to hold a regular job? I mean, I know if I was ever to get really serious about gymnastics (internationial competitions, etc) that it wouldnt be the case but until then will I be able to have a job and still be able to coach? Thanks for all[ Read More... ]

Sometimes coaches teach the girls and the boys, though it is a lot less common to do so in the higher levels and the elite level. One exceptional exception is Former Russian national head coach for both the women's and men's teams Leonid Arkaev. Interview with Arkaev: [quote] Do you keep statistics on the number of Olympic, World Championships, and European Championships medals that you, as[ Read More... ]

Actually, Bela Karolyi never was a gymnast. I think he was a boxer. But his wife Marta Karolyi had some gymnastics experience. As you probably know, Bela is known for Nadia Comaneci's and Mary Lou Retton's all-around gymnastics gold wins, as well as coaching Dominique Moceanu and Kerri Strug, among others. You probably saw Bela on the NBC coverage as a frequent guest commentator - now he runs the[ Read More... ]

Well, I have been interested in becoming a gymnastics coach. The thing is I am not a gymnast and know very little (only by a friend of mine in gymnastics do I know the very little that I know). Does that mean that because I have never competed in gymnastics or was a gymnast myself that I cannot become a coach? Im 18 and starting college in a week so thats my situation. Thanks for any help![ Read More... ]
