This DVD is the first in a series of instructional DVDs designed for gymnastics and trampoline teachers and coaches. The DVD is written and hosted by National Trampoline Champion David Kennedy, based on curriculum developed over 40 years by Larry Gleason, National Trampoline Team Coach.
What is covered: Trampoline Safety, Progressions for landings, position jumps, turns, and seat drop, front drop, and back drops. We focus on teaching correct progressions and lead-ups for each skill to develop a strong foundation for more advanced skills. Our goal is to provide teachers with tools and techniques to teach basic trampoline skills effectively. Running time is approximately 2 hours.
