Starting up a successful baton twirling group starts with cultivating a good Beginner level class. Teaching the fundamentals for a balanced and strong base is crucial to all athletes in any sport, but especially in baton twirling where there are so many disciplines to cover — e.g. baton technique, body technique, rolls, aerials, contact material, etc..
USTA’s Growth & Development department has put together a video example of a Beginner level baton class to help new coaches develop their own beginner level programs and to possibly refresh some veteran coaches with some new ideas.
