Definition: Spotting

Spotting: Spotting or to “spot” someone in gymnastics means to physically assist them in safely completing a skill. The amount of spot can range from cueing the gymnast to completely carrying the gymnast through the motion. A spot can be used to reduce risk of injury, or to ensure proper technique or body positioning. Spotting can be done hands on, or with a spotting device such as a spotting belt.
