    For Parents Fundraising???

    Scoring on events

    I found a site online where you can buy a set of cards that puts the "Compulsory deductions at your finger tips for all SIX LEVELS. These new sets are 8� x 11 in full color--coded by event. Eleven full size cards." I'm a gymnastics lover from WAY back and want to know everything that's going...

    tape for rips

    My DD has grown fond of the spray-on bandaid stuff too. Even when she doesn't HAVE a rip, we use it everytime she works out as a preventative. And she says that once it gets good and dry, she doesn't even know it's there. She has not had a rip since we started using it.

    For Parents Team at 5 1/2?

    I just wanted to say that I'm so glad to be a part of a board where honest, heartfelt opinions and responses are respected and used as learning tools and incite. My dd started "dancing" (ballet/tap/acro combo class) at 3 years old. Along the way, she has played t-ball, basketball, soccer, she...

    For Parents Shoot Thru & Front Hip Circle

    I THINK you may be talking about the mill circle!! My dd is Level 3, age 6, first year of competition, and just about 2 of the 8 girls on the team (both 8 years old) are the only ones consistant on making it. I'm not a coach, but I can tell you that Kenzie's coach says that staying straight...

    For Parents Money!!

    Expenses I know what you all mean about the gymnastics being expensive, but if you look at sports as a whole, it's not anymore out of pocket than if you had a child on a travel ball team or competition dance. I started a part time job when my little one started travel dance competition. She...

    For Parents What does your gym expect of you?

    Suddenly feeling very lucky! :eek: I don't know how some of you do it! I guess we're pretty in-line here with most of what I've read, but some of the gyms seem outrageous! I pay $140/month for my level 3 dd. She is in the gym 5 hours a week. The parents at our gym are required to pay the USAG...
