Ask The Gymnastics Coach

Our mission is and always has been to spread information about the sport of gymnastics to gymnasts, parents, coaches and gym owners. We have always answered whatever questions were posed to us by members of the gymnastics community and will continue to do so. We are now going to take this space to share with you some of what we have shared with them.

You Know What You Want to Know. Make Sure We Do.

We love to answer questions, but the biggest problem we have is that questions are often so vague that it makes it difficult for us to figure out what you really need and want to know.

Who, What, Why, Where, How and How Much

When you ask a question, please include as much information and be as specific as possible in your question. The old newspaper concept of including who, what, why, where, how and how much applies here. Give us as much information about your situation and we will be able to give you the best answer.

More Than One Sentence, Please

In particular, it is often necessary to know whether the gymnast is male or female, how old, what level and as many specifics as possible. The hardest questions for us to answer with any degree of usefulness are one sentence questions.

Names Are Changed to Protect the Innocent (and the Guilty)

We have removed information and rewritten some answers to protect the privacy of gymnasts and parents.

Ask Your Own Question

If you have your own questions relating to gymnastics, we will do our best to provide you with answers to the best of our ability.

Patience Please

Please note that it may take some time for me to answer your question due to the volume of email that I get. I strive to answer every question accurately and in depth and it takes some time to do that. I try to get to all of The Asks, but sometimes email eats them, and sometimes they’re kind of vague or i have already answered the same questions in another post, and sometimes remember that I’m only one person, and so I may not be able answer right away.

Note: This resource is now limited to previous answers
