When a gymnast puts away her leotard and club warm-up for the last time and walks away from our sport, as the Coach reflects, would they choose to coach the individual gymnast differently than they presently have? Effective youth coaching is psychiatry and parenting. Each gymnast is unique, and they have specific needs that sport can bring them.

Some coaches fail to fill those needs because they falsely assume they are training the next Elite or Olympic Champion. They fail to see each child beyond that day when their career ends. The USAIGC/IAIGC by design is to prepare our gymnasts for life beyond sports. We believe a healthy well-rounded competitive program will prepare our gymnasts for tomorrows World. Gymnasts in the right competitive environment will be prepared to meet the challenges of tomorrow’s world. They will become the leaders, providing our Coaches understand the big picture.

Gymnasts in a healthy Competitive Program will develop:
a standard of excellence, strong work ethic, believe in themselves, learn to trust others, the value of encouragement, to know they aren’t the center of the universe, to know that success does not come overnight (or in one practice), to lose with dignity, to accept temporary failures without blaming others, and to realize these failures aren’t permanent, to be pushed to their physical limit, time and time again, to love and to be loved, to sacrifice for others, to respect authority and rules, Teamwork/unselfishness, To never give up!
These things still matter when the cheering stops………… to be continued.
