Material and Methods. This review presents a synthesis of research conducted by the author. The following
methods of theoretical research were used: abstract and axiomatic methods, analysis and synthesis, induction and
deduction, idealization, comparison and generalization, and projecting.
Results. The coaches’ training in different types of gymnastics includes the development of a wide range of
professional skills: the tandem of communicative and motor skills that determine one type of complex coordination.
The realization of complex coordination presupposes the participation of sensor systems (analyzer systems), which
are visual, auditory, tactile, vestibular, and motor systems. The basic speech component of complex coordination in
coaches’ activity/behavior determines his/her communicative orientation in the process of teaching. It is explained
by the connection between the cultivation of complex coordination skills with the congenital and genetic, anatomical
and physiological particularities of the human organism. We determined the coordination abilities, the formation of
which contributes to the development of complex coordination skills.
