BOOK REVIEW JUDGES CORRESPONDENCE COURSE FOR WOMEN'S GYMNASTICS

A TEACHER'S GUIDE TO GYMNASTICS

The New Jersey A .A .U. Women's Gymnastics Committee have compiled a judges correspondence course covering all four womens events. The course contains the latest rules and regulations and the . latest, up to date penalties for errors, all under one cover, and explains how to judge. A test is included with answers, each sealed in a separate envelope, plus a scale for grading your own paper.

By: Marshall Claus

This course, an excellent supplement to prc..ctical judging, has been compiled for your convenience since many women, who wish to become qualified judges, may be tied up with family obligations or other personal reasons, making it impossible for them to attend several outside judges sessions in order to qualify. After studying the course you may take the test privately and at your convenience to see how you rate. When you feel confident, get in touch with any of the members of the N .J. AAU Women's Gymnastic Committee (or committee in your own state) for information on qualifying to judge actual competitions. The cost is $3.00 + .20¢ for postage and handling. Order from Helen Sjursen, 46 Poplar Place, Fanwood, N.J. 07023.

This text provides a variety of basic gymnastics skills that may he used. in organized classes, clubs, informal groups or recreation groups. .The text deals with each apparatus (for boys) individually. Every stunt is illustrated with sequencephotos accompanied by a written discription. Safety and spotting techniques are also included. In order to aid the begginning teacher in setting up a gymnastics program and teaching gymnastics as a unit chapters are also included on the history of gymnastics, general teaching procedures which can be adapted to individual situations and a section on terminology. The abundance of photographs and detailed descriptions make this 162 page book ideal for the beginning gymnastics teacher. A TEACHERS GUIDE TO GYMNASTICS may be purchased from the National Press, 850 Hansen Way, Palo Alto, Calif. The cost is $4. 95.

priate for junior high students who have not had a background in gymnastics activities.

The exercises are fun and challenging to the students and can become a source of great enjoyment and accomplishment for both the student and the teacher.

Divided into ten chapters, the text deals with basic free movement and apparatus skills which develop strength co-ordination, balance and flexabili ty in the elementary age child. Each skill is fully illustrated with written discriptions. along with teaching hints and the phys ical fitness value of each. The text is published by the Wm.C. Brown Company-135 South Locust, Dubuque, Iowa, and sells for $2.95. Favorite the World Over!

Each unit in our boys 1 Physical Education is divided into six-week segments. This time s phere adapts very readily to Illinois gymnastics which possesses six events.

High School Gymnastics

,. \

It is quite natural the n to take one event each week, alternating events between s upport apparatus, hanging and standing apparatus, to insure proper muscular developme nt:

First We ek - Side Horse Second Week - Horizonta l Bar Third Week - Tumbling Fourth Week - Parallel Bars Fifth Week - Rings Sixth Week - Trampoline

l :...

The application of the four periods per week will vary as to trick content but will remain constant as to general instruction. I want to explain what will be required, teach the skills, and appraise progress. This general program is repeated each week, subs ti tu ting the next event with the different skills and ramifications that this change has made possib le.

I have been criticized for devoting little if no space to gymnastics in the high school physical education program. To try and correct this situation I have briefly outlined the program I conduct at Proviso East. The concepts involved in the presentation of gymnastics in the physical education curriculum here at Proviso have fluctuated greatly over the past twelve years. I hope and believe that these changes reflect an evolution into a more refined and meaningful course of study.

y

Period I Spend the first twenty minutes explaining the event, what you expect to accomplish and the safety aspect of working the event. The last portion of the period should be used for teaching individual tricks and giving their point values (Formal presentation).

When I began teaching here I set up a check-list type program. This consisted of a number of progressively harder stunts on each apparatus, classified by difficulty wfthin each class, but progressed in severity between the Freshman and Senior years . Progress was measured by interpreting the number of points each student earned in the course of a testing period and assigning this number a meaningful grade.

'~

Period II Teach individual tricks (Formal presentation Period III

The next system I employed was using the 40 charts constructed and illustrated by David G. Smith in his publication, "Gymnastics - The Standard Method."

Let the students work out informally incorporating the skills they have learned into a competitive routine. Offer individual attention.

Both these systems lacked flexibility and did not give the participant the feeling or knowledge that is required to understand anci enjoy the sport of gymnastics. We, ¡ therefore, strove to create a class teaching situation that more closely resembled the sport of gymnastics.

Period IV Testing: Each student will perform his routine. He will be given points corresponding to the number each trick is worth in his routine plus an equal number for how -8-

COLUMBUS HIGH SCHOOL TEAM

FIRST INDIANA HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC ASSOC. STATE GYMNASTICS CHAMPIONSHIPS Report By John W. Hinds, Jr.

In addition to the battle that went on for the team championship, there was also a nip-and-tuck battle for the all around title between last year 1 s winner, Tom Dunn of North Central, and Brent Simmons of Columbus. Simmons who received the highest score of the meet - 82 .5 on the parallel bars and beat Dunn in three of the five all around events was not able to amass enough points to maintain his lead through the rings. Dunn performed a fine ring routine and thus won the title. Approximately one thousand spectators were in attendance for the finals, including several of the Nation 1 s leading college coaches. They saw without a doubt the best State Gymnastic Championships Indiana has ever held. The level of competition has vastly improved over the past years and no one team was able to dominate the meet . .

After seven years of State Invitational Championships in gymnastics the first State Gymnastic Championships sponsored by the Indiana High School Athletic Association were held at Warren Central High School of Indianapolis on Saturday, March 25th Three sectional meets had been held on Friday, Marchl7, in preparationfotthe State Championships. The top five men in each event qualified from each sectional for the State. The Sectional winners were: at Crown Point - Concord; at North Central Columbus; and at Wabash - Madison Heights. Twenty-three of the thirty-one schools that were actively competing in gymnastics during the 1966-67 season participated in the State Championships, representing approximately 700 gymnasts.

â&#x20AC;˘ ALL AROUND WINNERS

As had been fo:r:-ecast at the beginning of the year by most coaches, the State Championships were, to say the least, exciting. The three sectional winners fought it out tooth and -nail to th-e end. Concord, last year 1 s Invi ta tional winner lead the field until the last two events when powerful Columbus finally made its move and took the lead to win over Concord 106 to 89. To win Columbus had to overcome a 29 point deficit. They did by winning three of the

title. Encina totaled 106 . 5 team po in ts and dominated the meet by scoring heavily in every event but tumbling. The nearest rivals were second place De Anza of Richmond with 69 points and Ygnaxio Valley of Concord a surprising third with 55 points. A record twenty schools qualified athletes for the meet this year.

The Northern California Invitational Gymnastics Championship, held May 20, 1967 at Hillsdale High School, San Mateo, provided some of the finest competition in the history of the event. For the second consecutive year Encina of Sacramento won the Northern California Invitational team

The night prior to the Championship the all around meet was held at Mt. Diablo and hosted by Darrel Leckli ter. Fifteen -14-


This year 1 s Northern California In vitational established a precedent for ef ficiency. It took just two hours and five minutes to judge, average, and tabulate one hundred and twenty routines (fifteen com petitors in each of eight events). Final score sheets were distributed only moments after the final routine of the evening. All events were run individually with each competitor receiving the judge 1 s undivided attention.

top qualifiers from three divisions competed for individual and team honors. Encina' s Gary Vanderhoef and Dana Alexander copped first and second places respectively and sent their team well ahead in the standings with 20 points. Vanderhoef' s upset victory over his teammate was one of the big surprises of the meet. With a 9. 2 on rings and an 8.45 in vaulting, Vanderhoef edged Alexander by a slim three-tenths of a point! The Championship meet at Hillsdale saw other outstanding individual performances by Rich Stickney of Mt . Diablo, Mike Cooper of Mills, Joe Sweeney of San Mateo, Gary Vanderhoef of Encina, and Kent Umbarger of De Anza. Stickney 1 s back mo ore tromlet, side travels, and kehres in and out were a pleasure to watch. His coach, Darrel Leckli ter will enjoy having Stickney back for another year of competition and possibly an()ther gold medal. Vanderhoef' s "butterfly" mount (pull to cross on rings) opened the eyes of even the most knowledgeable gymnastics fans. Vanderhoef placed first in rings and the all-around, second on side horse, and third on parallel bars. Just a junior, Vanderhoef will be back on Ray Goldbar,s championship team next season. Sweeney, a San Mateo senior, coached by Art Andrews, performed very smoothly on the High Bar. Sweeney was injured prior to the championship meet and missed qualifying in the all around. He came back strong in his specialty and won with his "best ever" high bar routine.

ALL AROUND CHAMPIONSHIPS 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

National YMCA Trampoline Champion, Kent Umbarger of De Anza, swept his specialty and easily won the vaulting and tumbling events. Kent also placed second in free exercise and fourth in the all-around, establishing himself as the "most valuable athlete" in the meet. Mike Cooper, senior from Mills, edged Umbarger in free exercise by one-tenth of a point despite Umbarger' s double twister and "mile high" arabian dive. with a very well composed routine on parallel bars, Cooper managed to tie Howard Hardie of Berkeley with a score of 8. 05. Cooper 1 s roll to eagles on high bar and double back in ground tumbling drew applause during the competition. Cooper, coached by Ron Weiss, will be 11 scholarshipped" to Oklahoma U. for his collegiate gymnastics. -15-

and explanations of competitions rules educate competitors. To be capable of doing their job properly, they must follow the development of sport gymnastics and take an active part in it.

WOMEN'S GYMNASTICS

A perfect knowledge of the competition rules which are observed at all sport gymnastics competitions, a thorough preparation for each competition and a personal example are the basic prerequisites for a good work of judges. An invaluable aid for all judges which makes their responsible work easier are exact and clear competition rules. They help them to correctly evaluate performances of competitors.

."

We believe that all judges should study the new rules thoroughly and that they should contribute, by judging objecti vly according to the rules, to a smoother course of all competitions and to a further development of sport gymnastics. COMPETITION RULES OF SPORT GYMNASTICS FOR WOMEN

A SUMMARY OF NOTES ON WOMEN'S GYMNASTICS JUDGING By: Alena Tenterova of Czechoslovakia

Evaluation of Optional Exercises

'

1. When

judging the voluntary exercises we must take into consideration not only the quality and fluency of the whole exercise (as in the case of the compulsory exercises) but also the difficulty of the exercise and the value of the composition. When judging th& floor exercises or exercises on the balance beam we must consider wrether the gymnast has made full use of the exercising area and the whole length of the beam.

(This material was submitted by Jackie Uphues, Vice-Pres. for Women of the USGF.)

INTRODUCTION The remarkable successes of our women gymnasts and especially those of Vera Caslavska, Mistress of Sports, are good examples for young people and contribute to the upturn in gymnastics. In our country sport gymnastics is one of the principal branches of sport and has a tradition of many years standing. It effectively improves qualities of movements-i.e. quickness, strength, dexterity and perseverance as well as moral and voli ti ve qualities, as deter, oma topm. cpirage and persistence.

The voluntary exercises are evaluated from 0 to 10 by tenths of a point. 2 points

for the composition (sequences) and the utilization of the exercising area

3 points - for difficulty An integral part of the educational work in sport gymnastics are competitions where competitors demonstrate the results they attained after their annual work.

5 points - for the execution, general impression and rhythm. 2. Voluntary exercises should be different from compulsory exercises and at team competitions there should be differences

At competitions an important role is also played by judges who by their criticism -18-

between the voluntary exercises of individual competitors as well. Voluntary exercises may contain elements from compulsory exercises but the elements must be parts of completely different sequences. Voluntary exercises must be more difficult and should be presented fluently without unnecessary repetition of the elements of difficulty. They must comprise original connecting movements. Exercises showing swing should predominate and those involving force and strength are undesireable. The exercise should have the value corresponding to the level of the competition. It should start and conclude with an element of difficulty of the respective class. The character of the composition and the choice of elements should accord with the individual qualities of the gymnast in order that the whole exercise may make an impression of lightness and elegance.

Elements from compuls ory exercises prevail ... up to 1.0 point Insufficient utilization of floor area .•• up to 0.5 point Gymnast beyond boundary with one foot .•.•..•• 0.1 point Gymnast beyond boundary with two feet .•....•. 0.2 point Insufficient utilization of the whole· length of the beam ... up to 0.5 point Fourth and every next stop on the beam ..••.... 0.1 point Each unjustified stop on the bars, which is not in accordance wit~ the character of the exercise on this apparatue .•.••••. 0.2 point Conclusion of the exercise on the bars not initiated from the hands or out of character of .the exercise . ........ 0.3 point

3. If the element of the required difficulty is missing in the composition the penalty shall be 0 .6 point. If no element of difficulty is included at the beginning and at the end of the composition 0.3 points are deducted.

extended while displaying top difficulty. His routine contained a Russian moore on one pommel, an uphill back mo ore travel in a reverse uphill travel, a hop scissor ~ turn, and a double walk around to a dis mount--all performed flawlessly.

Report By: Abie Grossfeld, Dir. of Competition

A well trained Mannettes 1 team of Philadelphia under Bill and Ginny Coco won the women 1 s team championship. Fifty girls competed for the coveted all-around title with Sally Espe of Owego, N. Y. emerging as Champion just .435 points ahead of Colleen Mulvihill of Champaing, Illinois. However, Colleen performed a highly difficult and an extremely well, executed uneven parallel bar routine to walk off with the title. Kathy Gardiner of the Mannettes performed steadily and gracefully to annex both the floor exercise and balance beam titles. She was the meet 1 s only women 1 s double gold medal winner.

On May 19 and 20 the Junior National Amateur Athletic Union Gymnastics Championships were held for the second time in New Haven, Connecticut. The first Championships in 1955 were for men only at Yale University, while this year's competition was both for men and women at Southern Connecticut State Col. The 1967 Meet attracted over 400 entries representing thirteen states with New. York having the maximum number of competitors at thirty seven followed by California with seventeen.

. In general, the class of our younger girl .gymnasts was outstanding. If the work of our younger girls is an ¡ indication of how we will fair in the future, we can speculate optimistically in our international hopes.

The performance caliber was high in all events. Coach Jerry Todd's powerful Pasadena City College team continued its string of over one hundred consecutive vic~orie~ by dominating the men 1 s team championship. The New York Athletic Club placed second. Jim Amerine, a freshman at Southern Connecticut State College and representing the New ~ork Athletic Club, was the meets outstanding performer by winning 3 gold medals--all around, horizontal bar and long horse vault. Amerine also was second on the rings and third on the side horse. George Greer:field of Pasadena City College defeated a h~ghly. talented field in winning floor exercise with a unique and difficult routin~ which contained a forward roll jump to a high held "V" position and a double twisting back somersault. Ken Henderson, a graduate Rtudent at the University of Massachusetts, opened his routine with a front somersault step out to roundoff flip flop, double twisting back somer~ault. Fifteen year old John Crosby of the New YorkA.C. also started with a double twisting hack somersault and finished with a roundoff, flip flop, whip back flip flop . ' ' high layout somersault. Crosby edged Greenfield for the twnbling title. Fredricks of Pasadena C .C. won side horse with the meet' s outstanding performance--9. 75. Fredricks swing was wide and -21-

WOMENS REPORT (con't) expiration of the prescribed time the contes tant is given a signal which is repeated again after . 5 seconds. If the gymnast does not conclude her exercise even after the second signal o. 5 is deducted. If the composition is too short 0.5 is deducted for each remaining second. For exercises on the beam, the Rheuter s pringboard may be used and it is placed on the first mat. A modern exercise on the beam should be composed and understood as a composition. That means it should be considered as a whole. The entire length of the beam should be utilized during the exercise and one should take it into consideration when one composes an exercise. It is advisable to do away with "dud" places and to put one element into relation with the other so that there are no unnecessary stops in the exercise. It is also good to introduce jumps which, however, should be executed . in the greatest possible amplitude. It is jumps that embellish the composition a great deal. Also rhythm is very important and it is advisable to use the contrast between the fast and slow movement.

The rich composition contains: steps, sitting positions, prone positions, running, springs, turns, some sustained positions, hops, rolls, dance elements, stands, mounts, and dismounts. It may also contain pirouettes and some acrobatic elements.

level 3.0 points are deducted. Penalites are also imposed if: The gymnast recovers with one hand ..• 0.5 point The gymnast recovers with two hands . .. 1.0 point The gymnast falls down .•. 1.0 point The coach s peaks to the gymnast ... 0.5 point The gymnast is assisted by the coach , .. 1.5 point The gymnast is assisted in landing ... 0.5 point There are additional movements of arms due to poor balance up to 0.3 point There are additional movements of the trunk up to 0.5 point There is loss of balance covered by additional movements .. up to 0.3 point The jumps are low or heavy . ..• up to 0.2 point

Modern conception of exercises on the beam goes so far that some acrobatic elements from the floor exercises as flicflac, Arab spring and so on are being introduced. The modern set of exercises should contain three poses. If the arms move during posing it is not considered posing. For each next pose the contestant is penalized by 0.2 point. The duration of the composition is 1.20 - 1.45 minutes.

There are unjustified stops ... 0.2 point The rhythm of the composition is monotonous ........ up to 0.2 point Evaluation of optional exercises is made of 10 points: 5 points go for difficulty (originality, assurance)

The exercise must contain five elements of difficulty otherwise 0 .6 point is deducted. If the gymnast, during her first attempt, does not touch the beam she may start again and no penalty is imposed. If she does, the penalty is 1.0 point.

5 points go for technical execution, The exercises on the beam should not be rhythmically monotonous. Therefore it is advisable for the gymnast to train on this apparatus with musical accompaniment.

If the beginning or the end of the exercise is identical with that of the compulsory exercise the penalty is 0.3 point.

We hope that in the future the voluntary exercises on the beam will be accompanied by music.

If the difficulty of the composition does not correspond to the international
