    Getting stuck on rings upside down

    I have a level 7 gymnast. Has anyone else had trouble with their son getting stuck on the rings upside down at meets? My son got stuck last year twice (two different meets) in level 6 and he said there were little wires sticking out or something. He’s terrified of going to this gym again. Any...

    Looking for quick, easy to pack, healthy, non-messy snacks for energy during gymnastics practice

    Yes, we are the ones that are still driving really far to the gym. I've put in some job applications this spring and am trying to find a job in the town our gym is in. But if I don't land a job this spring, we will drive for the first year of team practices and try really hard to find a job next...

    My daughter does dance during the hour one day a week (same time as my son). Dance is right next door to gymnastics so it's handy. She tried preschool gymnastics but she wasn't quite ready because she struggled to rotate stations. 16 preschoolers and 3 teachers in a very small space was tough...

    Commuting to gymnastics

    Btw, I have no problems moving if that's what I need to do. We have no family here. We moved here for the job once I graduated from college. Moving would put us an hour closer to family also. I'm kind of bummed about selling a house I just built, but I could also consider renting it out as...

    Commuting to gymnastics

    I have some questions for other parents of gymnasts who have been there and done that.... We live in a very rural area, and I take my 6 year old son to gymnastics twice a week. This is the closest gym to us with a boys gymnastics program. It's 100 miles each way but the commute takes about 1...
