    International dev Trial

    It depends on the program as different gyms usually have different criteria, however there's also similarities. At her age they would generally be looking at natural strength, flexibility, desire/ability to listen and the shapes they make. Welcome to the crazy gymnastics journey.

    Another round of "Your kid might be a gymnast IF..."

    AUS post opens a US office

    I'm not sure as I haven't used any of the services, I do however work in domestic transport and logistics. If you look at this from a business point of view it wouldn't make sense for them to go below the current market rates as they have an established and recognised brand name which would mean...
