    At home conditioning during gym closure

    Usually when we go on a long vacation, our coach will email us a conditioning list for my daughter to work on. Perhaps you could ask for something similar?

    Disney Vacation

    oh wow, that’s super cool! I can’t imagine how many gift cards your agent has to enter in though lol! But yes, 5% of a few thousand dollars adds up to a lot so it’s totally with it!

    For Parents Help with confidence

    I’m not sure I would want my daughter being best friends with someone like that. I always tell my daughter not to worry about other people’s scores, to just have fun out there and do the best. Her goal is always to improve on her own scores from prior meets, whether that is improving on her...

    Disney Vacation

    If you have a target red card, you can buy Disney gift cards there for 5% off and then use them to spend at the parks at the restaurant, gift shops, etc. It’s not much but better than nothing.

    Junior Olympic What to do

    It’s always rough coming back from an injury. I agree with the above poster, just give her time to practice and slowly let her gain back her confidence and her skills should come back in time.

    Meet score

    How many hours a week are you practicing? A private lesson with a coach might be helpful as they can help identify specific deductions you are getting and tell you more precisely what to work on to improve your scores.

    back walkover on beam

    I would just give her more time to practice and gain more confidence. She will get there in time, and asking about it will make her feel more pressure and not help at all.

    How often do your preteam girls practice?

    oops sorry, I made a mistake. Level 2 girls actually practice 6 hours at our gym. 2 hour practices, 3 times a week. Level 2 competed 5 meets during the season years ago when my daughter was in it, I’m not sure about now. Every gym is different and some don’t have girls compete until level 3...

    How often do your preteam girls practice?

    Preteam level 2 girls do 4 hours a week at our gym, 2 hour practices, twice a week. I’m not sure of the exact requirements but the girls from the rec classes are usually scouted and invited to join from the coaches.

    Worst Meet Ever

    Just wanted to say that I absolutely love this thread and what a great reminder it is that gymnastics is not only about performing well and medaling. It’s so rewarding to see you all post about the little wins in gymnastics and what important life lessons our kids are learning from it!
