    Growth during break

    As long as he keeps up with his strength, flexibility, and any rehab, he should be as good as anyone else. Growth stinks for a male gymnast, but they can learn. I will say, keeping that flex is key though (strength too, but most boys are ok with that :) )

    Coronavirus

    I know the men are looking to figure out where to work out. I think Bart Conner Gymnastics is closed, but is allowing them to work there. OPTC Is closed, so they cannot work out there.

    How is your gymnast holding up so far?

    My son is hanging in there. He is rehabbing an ankle injury, and is doing 2-3 workouts per day. We are technically on spring break right now, so he is doing some make up work from when he missed for meets, and studying for the SAT. Friends are all on FaceTime for now. His spirits have...

    Coronavirus

    I think for small groups to work, parents and kids have to agree that gym and home are the only places they are going. That they are not out at sleepovers, etc. Just brainstorming, but that might be able to work in the short term. BUt for now, we practice at home

    What USAG should be doing

    I think the point is to push the spread of the virus out, to keep hospitals from being overwhelmed. We know we can't stop this virus right now, but slowing it is very important.

    If you can, support your gym

    ANd some are trying to continue to pay their hourly staff, especially those who rely on it to live, in order to allow them to continue to pay their bills, etc. I applaud that.

    Post season meets and Coronavirus

    OUr gym is closed, and I think they plan to follow the school districts. As hard as this is, I believe they all need to close. IT does no good to keep kids out of school, make people work from home, and then have everyone meet up at gym. It only takes 1 case, and this virus can be contagious...
