Is it possible for one coach to successfully coach MA and WA gymnastics at the highest level at the same time. Personally i think that they are worlds apart and therefore i do not see it being possible.
The reason that i ask is that at the Gymnastics Test Event in London i knew of a conversation that took place between a Technical Director (of a country we shall not name) and one of our National staff. The TD was looking for a candidate to coach MA and WA but only had enough funding for 1 position and was asking whether it was viable to employ 1 person to do both.
Even if somebody took on the challenge surely it would be a case of spreading yourself too thinly. I can’t think of a single mens coach that could successfully teach beam and choreography and i suppose it could be the case for a WA coach to try and teach pommel.
Only the brave need apply i think!
