=without support, totally off the ground
-jumping or releasing the base of support from an apparatus
which parts of the body take the weight?
-the bony parts are tucked in, while the muscular parts take the weight
what is the progressional stage to rolling?
-create curled shapes and rock back and forth
-then roll in various round shapes
-jump and land, then roll
-then: run, jump, land, roll
-then use of an apparatus
=transfer weight from two to one foot (any combination)
-inititated by a spring action which is a curling and sudden stretch
=locomotion involving either the feet, hands, or both to travel
ex. cartwheel
=traveling up ropes, ladders, or poles using upper body strength and require gripping of hands, ankles, or feet
flight-assisting apparatus
(introduced around gr.4)
=ex. springboard
=require good body conrol, strength, balance, and ability to land correctly
=form of locomotion that does not involve weight transference but requires tension as the body shape is held while traveling
is flight age appropriate for elementary students?
weight transference (on the spot)
-with the same body part, by jumping, therefore relieving weight from base
why does rolling prevent injury?
-b/c it provides the ability to tuck the body in a curled shape and continue moving until the momentum is dissipated
a. supports (head is above the base of support)
b. hangs (head is below the base of support)
ex. of suspension- ropes, ladders, bars
weight transference
=a change in base of support, on the spot or takes the body to a new place
what is the concentration on in weight transference
-toward the action of the movement rather than where, how or with whom
weight transference (to new place)
-using stepping or rolling actions to a new place
-provides child's safety upon landing while forming the basis for rotation in gymnastic movement
common types of locomotion in gymnastics
feet (running and jumping)
feet and hands (cartwheel)
which sequence is used to prevent injury?
run, jump, land, and roll
