Tips for teaching the half on half off vault in gym?

Does anyone have drills or can suggest ideas to teach the twist in the 1/2 on 1/2 off vault?

Hi Kat, I found this drill using the search bar that might help.

Hi Kat, I also just found this vault idea in the drills (from the left hand menu on site).

You can find more like this underDrills > Key Skills 5 > Techniques > "Twist cartwheel".

Hope this helps and keen to see what other coaches suggest too.

Thanks i found these but have already been doing them.  I need help with the 1/2 off part.  Does the gymnast continue in the same way or twist the other way?

They twist the opposite way.  There is a good twisting drill from the floor.  They do a round off onto the springboard(hands on the board) and then block off and twist to a tight hollow flat Back on a mat.  If you need a clip, I can record one of my girls doing it, just let me know.  :)
