    Information for gym newbies!

    I have a girlfriend who's planning to put her 4 year old in gymnastics, because she wants to "make her like Bean, all flippy and stuff" lol! I've spent some time talking to her about the sport to fill her in on what to expect. When we got started, we had NO idea what we were signing up for...

    USAG Level 8?

    Hi everyone! In my thread about my daughter's level, there were a number of people questioning some of the skills in her routine. I know that being in Canada, we have different criteria for each level, but was wondering what is allowed in the US. Does anyone know of a simple breakdown...

    We have a level!

    Bean came home from gym yesterday with good news and bad. Good news: she had her beam routine choreographed. Bad news, the skills included are for level 8. So, although no ones come right out and said it, it's a safe bet that level 8 it is! She loves her routine, but the excitement was...

    Update-Missing school for gym

    Well, I re-read the "missing school for gym" thread a few times, and decided to take action. The staff are back this week, so I called, hoping to avoid the frustration of trying to reach them during the crazy 1st week chaos! I called yesterday, but had to leave a VM for the principal. When...

    Missing school for gym?

    Hello everyone, I have a question for the parents of gymnasts who miss school for training. Bean’s team is going to be training the same number of hours this year as last. (16) They have however, changed the schedule, and now one 4 hour stretch will occur during the day. The reasoning...

    Looking for opinions!

    I know we *must* have some opinionated parent here on the board, so it's time to speak your piece! Bean's coach has narrowed down her floor music to 2 choices. Both tangos, and quite similar. She's given Bean the option to choose, which is proving to be difficult! She's having a hard time...

    Bean Update!

    Hi Everyone! It's been awhile, so it's time for an update! Our spring and summer here kicked off a little bit early. Some of you may remember that I was facing surgery for what looked to be a cancer recurrance. Turns out it was, so I had my surgery on June 12th. I'm midway through...
