    For Parents Cheerleading floors dangerous?

    For Parents Cheerleading floors dangerous?

    Do any of you guys have experience with cheerleading floors being used for gymnastic training too? Our gym has had a few too many arm/elbow injuries and I was wondering if the cheer floor may have something to do with it? It has these soft spots all over. Thanks for any info!

    For Parents Summer camps?

    Alabama camp is full so we didn't get in. I just wondered if Karolyi is more hype about the name or if it really is a good camp? My daughters really want to go to Karoylis but I'd love info on how good it is. Thank you.

    For Parents Move or not to move

    Not satisfied with current gym for several reasons, (She is level 3) but this is biggest, we get only 4 hours in gym a week and no more as move up.
