    Yet another sever's question

    This was a pediatric sports med attached to our children's hospital. I will continue to call but also see what our options are for a standard sports med dr, since we aren't able to get in touch with the peds dr. Thank you for your input!

    Yet another sever's question

    Daughter is forced to stop gymnastics

    I can't imagine how disappointing for her and you, as parents. I'm sorry and hope she can heal up quickly and make a full come back!

    Questionable coaching practice?

    Like this? Dd doesn't do it often, but I believe it stretches behind their knees to allow them to hyperextend a bit. I would never want a full grown man to do it though!

    A? for optional and xcel parents...

    Dominic Zito (USAG national team choreographer)...I think it's 1 hour slots but not sure of all the details. They keep routines for 2 years. (This is for optionals, I don't know how they work it out for excel)
