    Pirouettes , blind , front giants

    Thank you for your input! Coaches input is very important and gives great perspective! We definitely cannot read each others minds. I am sorry that you are struggling with this parent. I will be the first to admit Parents can be difficult and rude to coaches. I empathize with coaches and would...

    I agree. Well it comes down to the fact that I’m just going to have to have an honest conversation with the coaches. She loves all her coaches and usually everything runs smoothly, but this situation is not making her feel good and she’s confused and questioning her abilities. She’s asked them...

    Pirouettes , blind , front giants

    I looked it up on you tube and there are many gyms that train front giants that way. There is consensus though that it’s not the best way to do it because flying up into the handstand that way is not the best for their body or form apparently. But, I’m also Not a coach so I don’t know. She has...

    You could be right. I don’t know. My daughter does think she’s being told something different then me. She rarely ever cries and hasn’t since this happened, but I see other girls throw tantrums that are at her same level as her and I e talked to these girls moms and they said that doesn’t happen...

    Pirouettes , blind , front giants

    She learned to do the front giant on low bar first. By getting into a handstand with her hands in the same position for front giants. They basically get on low bar, turn their hands then pop up into and stand and swing in the direction of the front giant. When she nailed that they moved her to...

    Pirouettes , blind , front giants

    I agree. I feel like I’m missing something. I have been coming and watching bars regularly to see if I notice anything with my kids attitude that can be contributing or and I have seen her working on pirouettes before they took her off and made those comments. And then I see her working front...

    Yes but they are training everyone else on pirouettes and blinds at her level, but not front giants.

    Pirouettes , blind , front giants

    Yes thank you. The confusion beyond the drama that is going on is , why put her doing front giants when she doesn’t even need this skill right away, but does pirouettes. I would think the important skill to practice would be pirouettes and then blinds . She’s just feeling like she’s being held...

    Pirouettes , blind , front giants

    When she started on front giants they told her to the low bar , start with her hands in front giant position and try to get to a handstand and swing around until she feels the floor under her. Then when she mastered that on her own they told her to put it in pit bar. She hasn’t had any spotting...

    She is on a high bar over the pit and her hands in front giant position then gets into a handstand and front giants around and then swings or she hangs starting with her hands in a front giant position and does a few tap Swings til she makes it over.

    Pirouettes , blind , front giants

    That sounds like a good way to ask. I agree kids can confuse things or they don’t hear words correctly or can misinterpret. There is definitely missing communication. I did talk to coach a few days ago and asked how she was doing on bars and she said she’s amazing and she’s a hard worker and...

    Pirouettes , blind , front giants

    I’m completely confused as well and so is she. The issue goes beyond this because her coach told me that she is amazing on bars and will score very well at level 7 bars. She’s doing stalders , toe hands, and front giants, but no pirouettes. They told her she may never learn a blind. Naturally...

    My daughter is a level 7 . She moved up from one season of 4 to a 7. She has perfected her bar routine for level 7 and she was working on pirouettes along with other upgrades like stalders and then a few months ago they took her off of working pirouettes and started doing front giants. She...

    Pirouettes and blinds

    My daughter is a level 7 and has perfected her bar routine and she was working on pirouettes and then a few months ago they took her off of them and started doing front giants. She asked the coaches why and they said they were hesitant and may never teach her. So she is really confused at why...
