    Scoliosis and back pain

    My DD, 14 year old L 9 has been having some mid/low back pain on one side. I took her to get X-rays todays to rule out fracture. Turns out she has scoliosis. The Physician Assistant we saw said that this asymmetry is causing her back pain. Not even sure what my question is. I guess, does...

    For Parents Anyone heard of online school Edgenuity?

    Our school district will be offering this online option to students who continue distance learning next semester: www.edgenuity.com. It is a 6-12 curriculum, NCAA compliant. I'm wondering if anyone knows of it and if it is a rigorous academic educational option?

    Time to think about college-- so many questions!

    Thank you everyone for the wonderful advice! We are just looking through the list of colleges with gymnastics programs. My daughter is an excellent student so we'd like to start with the schools that would be a good fit academically as a few have mentioned above. I could go look them all up...

    Time to think about college-- so many questions!

    My daughter is a second year level 9, 9th grader. She is working some level 10 skills and her coach has suggested I create a YouTube channel or website to start posting videos for college coaches. Some questions: 1) What is standard to share videos? Should we join any of the college...

    How is it where you are?

    Our schools are still closed and numbers are better. Mask compliance practically 100%. Even in many local gyms.

    For Parents Trampoline recommendation?

    Thank you all for your thoughts. We are with TigTimes. We never considered a trampoline before but here we are. To be clear, our DD is not looking to practice her level 9 skills on a home trampoline. But I do think it will help her practice some things and stay fit and strong while having...

    For Parents Trampoline recommendation?

    Looks like gym will be closed for a while... Thinking of getting a trampoline for my level 9 to practice and for her little sister to play. Any recommendations? They are requesting one that is "bouncy". Thanks!

    Olympic hopeful training?

    Are Olympic hopefuls and/or elite gymnasts training at gyms or just making due with home conditioning like our mere mortal optionals?

    For Parents Best strong hold hair products!

    I am looking for good strong hold hair gels and sprays. We have been unable to get my daughter's bun to stay in this season! Maybe it is the harder, faster tricks? It used to work... She is a 13 yo level 9. Recommendations are very welcome!

    Sprained toe recovery / travel meet

    My DD (13 yo level 9) sprained the toe next to her pinky toe when it tucked under on a vault landing three days ago. X-ray confirmed no break and she can walk on it, do trampoline, no problem. It is a little swollen and hurts to tumble/land. Not a big deal injury, but we have a travel meet in...

    For Parents Humeral (shoulder) head growth plate fracture

    Thank you CuriousCate! I'm so sorry you are dealing with the same thing. I just read your initial injury story. My DD did this three weeks ago, so is right there with your daughter. We were just slow to MRI so just got the diagnosis. She's already not used the arm for three weeks and we see...

    For Parents Humeral (shoulder) head growth plate fracture

    MRI results just back. My 13 yo has a fracture in the growth plate of her shoulder. Does anyone have recovery experience with this? Competition season is late January and wondering if any stories can inform her possibilities. Thank you!

    Junior Olympic Are vacations really not okay??

    We have taken a three-week bike trip through Europe every other summer and plan one again this year. Our DD seems to come back to skills quickly. I think it helps that she is bicycling 35-50 miles a day in her "time off"! We take an additional summer week off where we just chill with extended...

    Random injury

    A teammate of my daughter went to the Dr today because of tailbone pain. Dr. said it is just muscular, stretch this week with no pounding and should be fine in two weeks. Hope your story ends similarly!

    Three weeks wrist cast, five weeks until states

    Update!!! Five weeks out of cast DD competed AA at regionals. Didn't place and fell on bars. But she landed both her Tsuks and rocked floor. She isn't thrilled with her results but I'm super proud of her grit and determination!

    Three weeks wrist cast, five weeks until states

    Yes, salto passes out of one-handed round-offs and a no-handed front pass. It didn't really look different than other routines to me. I also got her a beige wrist guard to protect the injured hand in case of a fall but it didn't look much different than a tiger paw. We went to a meet a couple...

    Three weeks wrist cast, five weeks until states

    Just updating everyone and thank you for all your advice and kind words. DD got her cast off two weeks ago today and seems to be healing well. She competed floor at states last weekend and was happy to medal with a 9.15. She was "graduated" from PT yesterday and is working up skills for...
