W200: Development Coaches Course: Hands on Training (HOTD)
Course Description
This newly developed course is a live, six-hour, hands-on training course designed for Levels 3-5 coaches. Course topics include drills and skill progressions on each event, lesson planning and hands-on spotting. This is a great hands-on experience of drills and skill progression with instructors demonstrating. The W200 participants are able to see the progressions of each skill presented LIVE and have a great understanding of how to teach and break down the skills.

The W200 Development Coaches Course: HOTD has been developed to:
  • Enhance the status of beginning level competitive gymnastics programs throughout the United States.
  • Establish certificate program requirements which will help identify competent compulsory level coaches.
  • Provide appropriate skills, drills and techniques for entry level competitive coaches.
  • Help standardize entry level competitive gymnastics teaching throughout the United States.
  • Provide resources, instructional materials, and assistance at levels 3-5 coaching.
  • Provides Hands on Spotting on all four Olympic Events.
U200 Development Coaches Course: Sports Science (online) is a companion to W200: Development Coaches Course: Hands on Training (HOTD). It is highly recommended that you complete U200 prior to W200. However, it is not a requirement to take U200 first. U200 covers the sports science aspects of coaching this level athlete, including nutrition, biomechanics, injury prevention and psychology.

Attendance to the W200 course is eligible for 6 hours of CPE credit.
