BACCIOTTI, Sarita et al. Women artistic gymnastics selection in Brazil. Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Esporte [online]. 2019, vol.41, n.1, pp.51-58. ISSN 2179-3255.

This study investigates coaches' (n = 40) procedures in gymnastics selection, and characterizes detection and selection programs (PS) implemented in Brazilian clubs. In 70% of the cases, the coach is the main decision maker; 90% uses motor tests (specific motor skills, speed, strength and flexibility) in PS. The mixed method is the most often used (55%) and comprises anthropometric, motor and technical data (70.0%, 62.5%, 47.5%, respectively). Most clubs (61.5%) conduct periodic recruitment; 38.5% use an external form. Only 8 clubs (30.8%) have PS, and these have 30% of elite gymnasts.
