    For Parents Asked to Join Level 1 at age 4

    In North Texas, Level 1 is definitely a thing and they do start them really young. They are achievement only, which means everyone gets ribbons/medals, the color of the ribbons are determined by score range: blue is 9.0+ red is 8.0-9.0, etc. It is supposed to be "for fun", but there are a lot...

    For Parents Using gym PT?

    Send them a notorized letter requesting the records in the form of certified mail(requires their signature and/or their refusal to sign) as their final warning. That lets them know you are serious and you are creating a paper trail that can and will be used against them. Many times that is...

    Competing in a meet without a team

    For Parents Parent Observation Policies

    My DD10 is a USAG L3. Our gym doesn't have a watch policy and they don't seem to encourage or discourage viewing. They have a large open viewing area that is behind glass. My DD loves for me to watch. And I LOVE to watch as well. I was a Class 1 gymnast back in the day and just generally...

    Questions for anyone who has been to Karolyi's summer camp

    My 10yo is going this year! She is SO excited! She is staying for 2 weeks and I'm sending 20 leos, just in case. She will probably wear 10 of them, and rewear her favorite ones, instead of putting a clean on one. yak! I am assuming refillable water bottles are OK. I am not packing "fun"...
