    Mushroom at Home?

    I would recommend it for sure! My son plays around on his all the time. As long as you don't make him use it he will and it can really be beneficial! We made our own mushroom.

    need ideas for cutesy (ugh) floor music

    I really liked a routine I saw a couple of years ago using Hey Mickey. Not sure where it came from but it really got everyones attention for sure!! I don't think its the one on floor express. This video even though you can't hear it clearly is the version I think.

    Suggestions for daughters floor music

    My DD has used Defying Gravity from Wicked (on floor express) https://floorexpressmusic.com/full-length-demos/CD1506-Defying%20Gravity%20(Wicked)-Demo.mp3 and Imaginary from Evanescense. We have only heard Defying Gravity 1 other time and never heard Imaginary. Here is a link to the evanescene...

    For Parents Travel Question, coaches pls pipe in too

    Absolutely let them go! I know I would have jumped at a chance to go to Europe for any amount of time! Those experiences are so important and should never be trumped by a sport! School maybe but NEVER a sport! Have a great time on your vacation. Just a little jealous over here!!!

    Honey/Corn Syrup/Other

    Currently I don't think any of the boys on our team use honey or karo. I have not even seen the girls use anything besides water on their grips. Am I missing something here?

    For Parents How to tell a coach that your level 7 gymnast daughter is switching to another gym

    move on and send an email after. No sense in putting your girl through that. How unprofessional! Maybe leave sooner? Seems like an environment that is unhealthy.

    For Parents Allergy medication

    both my kids take Allegra (or the generic version) as well as flonase nasal allergy spray. I think the flonase works better than the pill with controlling allergy symptoms. It just became available over the counter this year.

    Where do you find pants for you sons

    I agree that Gap Slim (+ the skinny fit ) jeans or slacks are the best fitting for my super skinny guy. They are the only ones I have found that fit both length and waist (that is with the adjustable waist)

    Making up for lost time!!

    She has got a lot of spunk out there on the floor! Super cute! I would love to see her L8 bar routine as well. My DD was always best at bars so I love seeing bar routines!!

    Frustration - sorry this is long and really just me venting

    Good Luck, I hope they call you sooner than later! I HATE the waiting game!!

    Searching level 5 bars on Youtube...

    You could also look at Old Level 6 bars videos from a couple season ago since it is the same routine as the new Level 5 bar routine.

    Fear or something else?

    My son is also experiencing a fear of flyaways from hitting his toes. It was the one skill he picked up so quickly and was doing them so consistently until then. It totally freaked him out. His coach eventually had him go back to being spotted on timer tucks over and over. He wo do his...

    For Parents Good thoughts needed for CB parent

    I am so glad he is doing so much better! Thanks so much Bog for keeping us up to date on his condition! I will continue to think of them in my prayers!

    For Parents DDs mental block Came back, but kudos to her coaches

    I think writing a small thank you note will go a long way! Coaches don't usually get a lot of feedback either!

    For Parents Grips

    Look up Georgia Dabritz. She competes for Utah and just recieved a 10.00 on bars at a recent meet. She does not wear grips
  16. AlexsGymmyMom

    We have grips......that are still too big, I'm afraid!

    We found that Ginnasta grips were very easy to fit for my DD and they don't stretch out as easily. There is a video guiding you through the sizing process so a lot of the guess work is gone. http://www.ginnasta-usa.com/Ladies-Gymnastics-Grips/

    How many is too many?

    Def not enough coaches especially if that 1 coach has to supervise the entire gym. At my son's gym they currently have only 1 coach for the boys. There are 19 boys on my DS's team. There are 14 L4's 3 L5's and 2 L6's. We totally need more boys coaches, as he is spread pretty thin and I think...

    For Parents App for tracking meets

    Tumble Tally or Meetacular. Tumble Tally is more user friendly but Meetacular you can attach pictures and videos to each meet as well.

    Frustration - sorry this is long and really just me venting

    I do think you should at least check out the other gym if it is at all possible. Don't let it be ok for her to put up with or have to have her use thier negativity to fuel her own fire. They should be fueling it with positive feedback and actual coaching. I do feel so relieved that my son...
