From the Archives: Instructor Training, Cheater Tape and Stretching

| December 6, 2011 | 0 Comments

It’s Tuesday and that means we’re pulling relevant articles from our archives to save you time in searching.

This week we begin with a long post written for those new to coaching or who are in their final years of performing and are thinking of transitioning into the role of coach.   It’s chock full of links to instructional materials available on the web, ideas for seeking out training and mentor opportunities, ways to gain insight into design as a spectator and tips for related training such as first aid and education courses.  If you’re just getting started take a look at this post!

The next article is a practical article on placement of cheater tape.  As you enter this important period of fundamental training for winter season cheater tapes on the flag pole can be an invaluable tool.  If you’re not already using them check out this article.  This is only one way to play cheaters – and really there is no rule as to where they should go… but it’ll get you started.  If you use cheater tapes and place them in a different spot than the author please share your suggestions and experience in the comments section.

And finally – this one is really brand new on the site – but in case you missed it during fall season we thought we’d bring it back for the start of winter.  Check out the first in our Movement Chick’s training series – Stretching.
