    Lily closed out her season by competing in the HOPES championship meet on Friday. She took home the gold on floor, bronze on vault and the silver in the all around with a 51.2.

    International Elite Changes to next years elite calendar

    Heard from a reputable source that next years American classic will ne held much earlier in the year, either end of February or early March. Which means new junior elites that are also doing JO won't be able to compete at nationals if they compete at the classic meet.

    Classics locations still not announced!

    Getting really frustrated....they announced the location of championships months ago but nothing about where either classic is going to be held. The first one is in 3 months. Seems far away until you have to start planning flights, etc....impatient mom here.

    New Goal....

    We are heading out early Thursday for our first ever visit to Texas for the Biles meet. Lily will be competing in the Friday elite qualifier. She and her coaches had a long talk after her last qualifier and they have decided to change her goal to HOPES instead of junior elite. She seems like a...

    Lily's First Junior Elite Qualifier

    Definitely did not go the way we had hoped. Started on bars and I knew as soon as she started that this wasn't going to be a great meet. She ended with an AA of 46.050, she needed a 50.5 to advance. Luckily she will be able to try again in two weeks at the Biles meet in Texas.

    TOPS / Hopes TOPS/HOPES Coach of the Year

    I didn't even know that this was a thing but one of Lily's coaches was just named the TOPS/HOPES Coach of the Year for 2017-2018! The USECA (United States Elite Coaches Association) names 2 coaches of the year each year, one for TOPS/HOPES and one for Elite. This is pretty amazing considering...

    Junior Olympic No More Super 8 for Region 4

    I was so sad to learn that region 4 will no longer be doing the super 8 teams for regionals. The top 8 level 8 gymnasts (regardless of age) would be named to the super 8 team where they would compete as a state against the other region 4 state's super 8 teams. Lily was on it when she was a level...

    International Elite An interesting article on what it takes to make the national team

    I found this article really interesting. It shows a breakdown of just how many girls attempt to qualify elite and how many actually end up being named to the national team.

    TOPS / Hopes TOPS National Testing Open to Parents

    TOPS National Testing can now be watched by the parents. Parents were never allowed to watch when it was held at the ranch. I'm wondering if this means parents will be able to watch invite and devo camps as well?? Not holding my breath on that one though.
