    Level 10 question. A judge told our coach that the B handstand dismount counts as a C on pommel. We are surprised we were just told this. Is it true?

    Michigan compulsories

    I have just heard something quite puzzling to me. In Michigan, for low level co Pilloried, kids can compete the routine from a higher level. So say a girl is level 1, she might compete the level 2 floor routine in her level 1 competition? Sounds crazy, no idea how that would really work well...

    non-sanctioned meets?

    Okay, so I have heard a few times of kids competing JO levels at non-sanctioned meets. How would that even work? How would you get judges? Why would a gym choose to attend a non-sanctioned meet. I don't know if that happens in my area, as all the meets I know of are listed on our states USAG...

    competition uniform

    Okay, I am watching video form podium training, Are the US men's uniforms exceedingly tight this year? I have never seen them tug on their uniforms so much. Also, they seem to wear their shorts very low on their hips. It's annoying to watch them tug at their uniforms like we we hope our boys...

    JO update

    Update #3 is out. A few interesting things: They are using JR FIG code of points. No idea what changes that makes. Level 10 is now 8 skills, vs 10 previously. JD has a div 1 and div 2. I've only skimmed it but those things stood out to me. I also think I saw that 11yo can do JD...

    YouTube/instagram fame and NCAA

    So, there is a prominent YouTube family, their daughters are gymnasts. The family has designed and sold leotards with their channel name, hosted a gym meet and now they are designing a pair of Nike's to sell. Isn't all of this in violation of the NCAA if their kids want to compete in college? I...

    random curiosity

    So my son skipped form level 6 to level 9. Age wise he is an older level 9. But he is not ready for level 10. Most of the boys he is competing against seem abut in the same boat, clearly not ready for level 10, too old for level 8. There are a few though that puzzle me. These boys are...

    Div 2 and regionals

    I am in region 1 and was just looking at the website for regionals. it states that only Div 1 level 5-7 will go to regionals. The USAG documents make it look like both Div 1 and 2 will go to regionals. Is this being left up to each region? Do you know what your region is doing?
