Backdrop Pullover Spotting

Check out Coach Penelope’s new spotting technique, with Eleanora!  Ellie is a Level 3 gymnast who is still working on her Backdrop Pullover. She has the rest of the routine, except for the beginning move, which is a backdrop pullover.  I had never seen this spotting technique before.  Pretty cool invention.  It appears to work best on small kids, and probably won’t work very well on adults or teens who are struggling with the backdrop pullover.   The gymnast should already be comfortable with backwards rolls on floor and trampoline.  Ellie is light enough that she can perform the rest of the routine uninterrupted afterwards.  Let us know what you think of this new way to spot Pullovers!
