    Anyone headed to gymnix

    So 4 weeks ago goose hyperextended her elbow, 2nd degree sprain and partially torn UCL. At the time the estimated recovery was 4-6 weeks, so we thought ok she’ll miss our clubs meet but should be good for gymnix. Grandma took her to physio yesterday and now the estimate to full training, while...

    I’m not saying it’s anyone’s fault or that I or anyone else should penalize Kids in fact I’ve said the opposite just that I can understand the feelings on both sides. And that no one is right or wrong feelings are emotional and both sides are entitled to them. as I stated many times I show up...

    how can they be on the same scale when they are training more hours, maybe with smaller groups and more coaches...surely you can see how it would be more difficult with less resources dedicated to them... Like I said I don’t begrudge other athletes anything but as a reasonable human being, who...

    Which is awesome for her :) Just saying I can see how an athlete not in That group but competing at the same level and age group from the same gym might feel at a disadvantage. I know you can’t control what other gyms do and I recognize that gymnastics and life aren’t fair but I can sympathize...

    If that’s how it works at your gym great! At ours there’s no try out for different groups. and I would never say anything to a parent about their daughter or fairness. My older daughter was fortunate to be in the higher hours group and saw it from the other side. I was just offering a...

    i can sympathize with the parents from the same gym. It’s hard to see your athlete compete against an athlete from the same team who seems to be getting more hours and better training. I get that gymnastics ( and life) aren’t fair but do think things within a gym should be as fair as possible...

    Emotional or something else?

    Yep Anxiety is a beast and no amount of bribery or ultimatums will help. Mine went through a similar thing as gymmomx2 at the same age and I can vouch she was a great support.

    Sooo true like I said 6 used to be a dumping ground at our gym With the changes my daughter and her buddy competed 6 last season and was training with our national stream girls so not the same training our previous 6’s would have gotten

    Bars skills

    the changes to 6 did up the difficulty requirement for the dismount which just made sense if you have to do a flyaway in 5 I never understood why post 2018 6 didn’t require similar Honestly my daughters gym used 6 before the changes as a dumping ground for kids not progressing, in Canada we...

    Bars skills

    Yeah no tap swings but the flyaway is out of a cast that must be above 45. No required back extension but since it’s an optional level I guess it could be in there, though they do work on that in 3 and 4. Leaps must be 180 in 6 vs the 150 in 5. And on beam 6 must have a skill with flight or a...

    Did your daughter do level 5 before the level 6 requirements changed this year? If so then it’s not a fair comparison

    UCLA joins the college scandals

    Tons of American students take spots in other countries schools... goes both ways and for the most part I believe the benefits international students bring to a school are hard to quantify. Speaking as a Canadian who attend college in the states and a gym mon whose child has NCAA aspirations
