    Knee Injury with no answers :-(

    DD8 has had knee pain for a while. It finally got bad enough to go see a doctor. After XRAYS and an MRI, all they determined was discoid meniscus, which shouldn't cause any pain on it's own. They found no tears or inflammation... nothing. She's been on rest since March. Has anyone ever had...

    Would you tell your kid? (meet scores and placement issues)

    So DD8 was in level 1 last year (at age 7). She was one of the oldest in her group. She was often the example "do it the way she does" for the younger girls. She did wonderfully at states (1st all around). That's what she remembers. Our gym does AAU at first. AAU does not give placements...

    Tell me it's going to be ok.....

    DD has been put into the level 3 training group (yay) from level 1 last year. Level 3's at our gym practice 11.5 hours a week. Apparently they are full on the days level 3s practice and are looking to hire a new coach so they can move the new level 3's up. In the meantime, they are practicing...

    Does your gym have a cheer-leading team?

    I noticed on our gyms website that they are planning on starting a cheer team... not sure how I feel. Does your gym have a cheer team?

    Communication Issues? Disorganized?

    I got an update today (that I had to ask for). DD will be moving to the other group and the move will happen by September due to some scheduling and spacing issues. I'm satisfied for now... though it would have been nice to not have to go chasing down the information. Meanwhile, I started...

    Communication Issues? Disorganized?

    For now, I'm just bringing her to the level 1/2 group until told otherwise. Meanwhile, they brought in a ton of new girls to this group, so clearly they have made some decisions.

    Communication Issues? Disorganized?

    Thank you. I honestly don't care what the other kids are doing or not doing. But sometimes the only way I know anything is because someone tells me what they were told and if it feels revelant then I ask HC who either verifies, clarifies or tells me they don't have an answer. Lately, no...

    Communication Issues? Disorganized?

    I'm feeling very frustrated with my DD's gym right now. After considering switching, we decided to give it one more season (and take it from there). I had a long talk with the HC and I thought we had a plan in place for this coming season (we compete in the Spring). My DD was level 1 this...

    Upper Level AAU?

    Thank you, everyone, for your input. I think I'm feeling good about my decision. We're going to stay at the current gym one more season. This is not just a financial decision but also because the idea of a sudden move freaked my kid out lol. I'm hoping it will be okay. There is a chance...

    Upper Level AAU?

    I know. Compulsories go August - December here in JO. We'll likely make the switch in June... which I know is late. They were open to trying her out this time around but I decided that the decision was just too rushed. Hopefully, it will be okay come next summer. If our seasons lined up...

    Upper Level AAU?

    I think if I tried to switch at the end of the JO season (December here), both my DD and DH would flip out on me. DD's first competition won't be until at least January 2019 for next season. I would have already paid more than 1/2 competition fees by then. I'm just going to try to make the...

    Upper Level AAU?

    Thanks. Unfortunately, there's a timing/finance issue. Our AAU season just ended and the JO compulsory season is just beginning. We went to another gym to check it out and had a good talk with the owner. Even though I LOVED the gym, I don't know how to come up with my last month of tuition...

    Upper Level AAU?

    Hello. My 7yr old DD just finished level 1 at a (mostly) AAU gym. She actually did quite well and the gym wants her in level 3 next season (assuming summer training goes as expected). Our gym is small and not one of the big names in the area. They do very well overall in the AAU world...

    Hello! Mom here!

    Hello. I'm the mom of a 7 year old gymnast who competed level 1 this past year. She absolutely loves it. We are new to this journey but enjoying ourselves so far.
