not to spot that results in injury causes the gymnast to lose confidence in her coach. If a

tennis coach makes a mistake in coaching, chances are that the athlete will not get hurt.

If a gymnastics coach tells an athlete to perform a skill she is not ready for, it could

cause an injury, something not easily forgotten by the young gymnast.

Peaking Under Pressure

Although no significant differences were noted, viewing Table III does show a

trend whereby the higher levels show higher scores for this subscale then do the lower

levels. This may be a case whereby very experienced Level 10 gymnasts may have

influenced the data quite a bit. As mentioned earlier, although there is a difference

between Level 11 (“elite”) gymnasts and Level 10 gymnasts, there are Level 10

gymnasts who could have competed as elites. Furthermore, since scholarships are

readily available to Level 10 gymnasts as well, many Level 10 gymnasts and their

families decide that it isn’t worth the extra time, work, and expense to compete at the

elite level. This leaves a fair number of experienced and successful gymnasts at this

level. They know how to peak under pressure, as do the Level 11 (“elite”) gymnasts.
