    For Parents Amenorrhea

    my 2 girls started very early. Older dd (non gymnast) started just weeks before turning 13. Younger dd (lifelong gymnast) started just a couple weeks after turning 12. BUT my husbands nieces were 14 & 16. There is no time frame that is good or bad......it just is whatever it is for each kid...

    Recruiting Trips?

    Agree with @FlippinLilysMom "Zero on campus or off campus visits. So you can visit a campus but no contact allowed with coaches. Coaches are also not allowed to travel to recruit. Virtual recruiting is the only way for the foreseeable future." but want to add that I believe that D2 & D3 has not...

    More suspensions

    Yes. @doublestrike the “tickling” was disturbing to me as well. Here’s the thing, maybe outside of a coach/gymnast scenario tickling may be funny to some. But I have a huge issue with an adult telling kids to forcibly hold down another child while the touch them against their will. In any...

    gyms in NNJ

    I know nothing about the atmosphere of the place, but I believe North Stars will be less than half hour from Newark. Also believe ENA Paramus would be close. Maybe someone who would be familiar with the area can pipe in and say how they are

    Minnesota to cut men’s gymnastics :(

    Minnesota to cut men’s gymnastics :(

    I saw this on another site, so sad that another program is going away. Does anyone know How many teams are left in D1, and how many need to be in to remain D1? I’m hoping the rest stay the course, it would have great implications for the Olympic team also I’m sure.

    International Elite Maggie Haney suspended

    No. It’s referring to the Luau in Leo meet held at Kalahari

    International Elite Maggie Haney suspended

    @bookworm I agree, but I’m calling it now.....she’s gonna try and explain that photo away by saying it was her being mom not coach. Not saying it’s the truth (we all know it’s her training not mothering) but that’s what she’s gonna try for. Or maybe I’m wrong....maybe she’s ballsy enough to say...

    International Elite Maggie Haney suspended

    curious....is it possible that one of the girls in that photo of Haney running is her daughter? I know absolutely nothing about her family other than her daughter does gymnastics. No idea how old she is or anything. Is it possible that it's her kid? If it is, it still doesn't take away from...

    For Parents Question About Gymnastic Waivers/Contracts

    no, and I would really question why I was asked to sign a waiver like that! Has the coach or gym been sued for mental anguish and the cost of therapy for kids? Red flag to me.....not saying it's not legit, but I would seriously reconsider my kid attending there
