    HELP!!!!!Good Prep Op. Gyms in IL.

    Can't be much help here, our gym was considering going Prep-Op this past season, it's the first time it was available in Illinois, but decided against it because there were so few competitions. We went to seven meets last year, none of them had prep-op although I guess they would be seperate...

    For Parents Very sad times

    We had the same thing happen to us when we moved to Missouri to Illinois. One of my first concerns after enrolling in school was to find a gym. In our area only one gym was close by. I called the gym and scheduled a try-out for my DD then 6. She went through the try-out and then the gym...

    For Parents Feeling overwhelmed right now, advice?

    Welcome back , glad you are here.I think the first step is to be put in touch with your gyms booster club. Many times competition fees can be fundraised and if you didn't have that big amount to worry about the rest might seem more doable. But it is an expensive sport and those 5 meet will...

    We go through some of the same things here, Cate is 13 and has been doing gymnastics forever, her little sis 10 has found her "thing" with basketball. Little Sis has been to so many meets and loves her sister very much, but now she wants to be able to do her thing too. When the two worlds...
