You all know how important it is to train your athletes using a progression of skills. This is your chance to work with Seishi Inagaki and learn the techniques of the WBTF Coaches Level I Training Program from one of the World's best coaches. Here is what Seishi has to say about the program:
= Seishi’s message =
"Since there are only 2 hours to talk, I will try to select 3 categories of movements (arial, contact material, and rolls) from Standard Routine and Basic Skill program. I will try to show how one movement develop to higher levels, and how coaches should guide and teach these developments. Coaches need to understand the progress of skills in detail, so that whenever athletes face difficulties in their technique, coaches should be able to identify the problems athletes have.
I will also explain the importance of clearness and beauty of baton revolutions, such as patterns and planes. I believe baton twirling is such a unique sport which involves releases and receptions with music and dancing. It is very important for us to secure our sporting identity, and these values should be passed on to our younger generations.
Also, I will explain how important for coaches to use these Basic Skills programs and Standard Routine contests. These skills are very easy and basic, and good tools to promote and spread our sport.
Thank you, Seishi Inagaki"
