The EDIP Method of Teaching

E.D.I.P  system for teaching trampolining skills works well.

Explain

Verbal explanation of the skill, the axes it uses, how it will feel, what the body needs to do, where the eyes should focus

Demonstrate

Practical demonstration by coach/teacher or other pupil so that the pupil has a clear visual picture of what the skill looks like

Imitate

Using safe progressive coaching practices allow the pupil to begin practicing the skill, using skill break downs, safety aids and coach support as necessary.  The pupil is  working towards imitating the perfect model as seen in the Demonstration stage

Practice

The skill, or part skill should be practiced to enable the pupil to consolidate the learning before moving on to the next progression,  a new or more complex skill.

Practice, Practice, Practice !
