Why be a gymnastics instructor?

The best piece of advice that I would give to a fellow Gymnastics coach heading out to camp would be to get as much experience coaching and working with gymnasts of all ages as possible. Camps will vary with equipment and the size of your classes so understanding how to adapt is key to having a great summer."
