How to properly select and store a hoop for modern gymnastics?
Hoops for Rhythmic Gymnastic
are of different sizes: from 60 cm to 90 cm, increasing by 5 cm. A 60 cm hoop is usually suitable for gymnasts aged 3-6 years, 65 cm: 6-7 years, 70 cm: 7-8 years, 75 cm: 8-9 years, 80 cm: 10-12 years, 85 cm and 90 cm: 12 or more depending on height. To select the ideal gymnastic hoop, measure the distance from floor to pelvis (2 cm below the navel). This distance is the diameter of the gymnastic hoop that should be suitable. If a gymnast would like to get a larger hoop in the event of a grow spurt, the distance from floor to navel should be measured. However, it is best to consult the choice with your coach.
The gymnastic hoop must be stored in a special holder for hoop
, where it will not become dirty and will be comfortable to carry. It is important to note that gymnastic hoops should ideally be stored in a horizontal position, since keeping them in a vertical position may lead to their flattening.
The colour range of gymnastic hoops is selected for each gymnast individually so that it complements the image of her performance on the carpet. Hoops can be adorned with acrylic paints or covered with special colourful tapes for gymnastic hoops
. It is necessary that such a gymnastic hoop be covered with a protective layer of transparent tape.
