    For Parents Just wanted to say hi!

    Thanks for stopping by and saying "Hi" Netty! It sounds like Olivia is doing splendidly. I know if Beetle ever decided to stop gymnastics I think it would be hard on me too! Check in once and a while!

    Visa Championships Anyone going?

    Beetle and I will be going. I may just get tickets off of Stub Hub or something similar. I am not sure what days we can attend yet.

    Help with understanding scoring...

    Her growth spurt really affected the Endurance in her routines, I agree this will improve greatly by next year. Endurance is also part of the problem with her Double back dismount. She was running out of energy and peeling off the bars.

    Help with understanding scoring...

    Thank you GymPanda. Just understanding why HC wouldn't have asked makes things a easier to understand. There have been several times during the year that Beetle had various beam start value issues and HC never inquired about it. My DD just wants to know what was missing, and like Bog said, at...

    For Parents Skipping levels question

    My DD never competed L4 either, Competitive L4 was not an option at her gym. USAG doesn't require it. She can compete L5 without ever competing L4.

    Help with understanding scoring...

    She competed FHS BHS in 2 meets this year. After training it for about a month, it was inconsistently connected. Fell on it in the 2nd meet of the year and the her coach said enough of that. He, unfortunately, is not that open to other skills. It is something I wish would change. Thank you...

    Help with understanding scoring...

    Thank you Dunno! I do not take anything you say offensively at all. Yes, she has gone through quite the growth spurt during the past year. (around 6 inches). I agree she needs some time to grow into her body. She was just hoping for a little understanding, so she knows what to fix. And I...

    Help with understanding scoring...

    Growth Spurts in gymnasts

    Hi All, My DD, 15 years old competing L9, went through a massive growth spurt over the past year. Our guess is approx 4 inches in 1 year. She is now about 5' 5". She is still able to do most of her skills but they are just not as clean/high/powerful as they used to be. How much do you think...

    Lake Owen camp?

    My DD (15 years old, L9) Has been going to Lake Owen for years. She LOVES it. You will fit in just fine, they assess your skills and put you in groups based on skills preformed. You will be with girls with your similar skills. From what I have seen the past few years you will be with girls...

    Height in gymnastics

    My DD is 15 and a L9 as well.. She just went through a massive growth spurt (We figure approx 3-4 inches in 1 year) She is 5'5" pushing 5'6". The major difference I have noticed with her, is just learning to adjust to the height. She is probably the tallest in the gym now (by about 1/4 of an...
