    Kellogg's Tour :-/

    Oh, okay. Well, I didn't go with a gym {since I technically don't belong to it currently}, so our tickets were more expensive. And plus, since it was the night before the show, they may have raised prices because they were taking advantage of the lazy people. xD Yes, it was a lot of fun to...

    Kellogg's Tour :-/

    There was no way my mom would let me buy those expensive seats, so we got the cheaper ones in the back. {See above post ^^} Yeah, I saw a big line of people waiting to buy pictures to get autographs on, but I didn't see anybody really talking to the gymnasts. The arena was big but I could still...

    Kellogg's Tour :-/

    I read your post, checked, saw that they were still selling, and got tickets. ^^ Well, my mom really didn't want to go, but my dad came to the rescue and said he'd drive us. {He fell asleep during the show. xD} So, yeah! When we were buying tickets, my mom clicked on the area right next to the...

    Kellogg's Tour :-/

    In June, my mom promised she'd buy tickets. But she waited and waited. I reminded her two weeks ago and she said, "Well, we need to see if that's a rehearsal day." I told her that it wasn't and she said okay, and that she'd order the tickets soon. Well, now it's in a few days and I never got...

    Kellogg tour of champions

    They're going to my state in November! YAY! I'm gonna go! :D *gasp* My gym is on the list! :D Does that mean I can buy tickets through the gym? :D Like, what does it mean if my gym is on the list? xD

    I Feel Torn.

    I just wanted to let you guys know how it went. So, my mom and I talked to the head coach. My mom told her that I would be doing ballet on Wednesdays, which is the only day they offer my pre-team class, and that I would be busy with "The Nutcracker" up until after the holidays. She informed us...

    Coach Leaving...What to do?

    Okay. Thank you! :D That's much simpler than my idea, and better, too! xD

    Coach Leaving...What to do?

    Okay. Maybe I could make a card, and get the older kids in my class to sign it? {They combine younger pre-team with older pre-team in the summer, so there are mostly 7-and-8-year-olds in the class, along with a few 14-year-olds. The 7-year-olds have only had her for, like, 4 days, but us older...

    Coach Leaving...What to do?

    I forgot until today that today is the last day my coach will be working at our gym! She got another job that she has to be at pretty much all of the time she would be at the gym, coaching. :( But she's not just any coach. She's been my coach the whole time I've been in pre-team at this gym: 3...

    I Feel Torn.

    Yeah, this Wednesday, she's coming in to talk to the head coach and ask about options. Like, if there's any other classes I could be in. I'll talk to her then. And who knows, maybe private lessons there aren't too expensive! :D Me too! :D All of my ballet friends have done it twice now. xD They...

    I Feel Torn.

    But I love both of them so much! I LOVE being with my silly ballet friends, even if they ARE 4 years younger than me, and getting to dance alongside them on a stage. {done it once before, but a very minor performance.} But I've been dying to get on team for 3 years...every since the beggining of...

    Favorite Stretches

    I LOVE doing wall sits, actually my friend and I both love it and we call it "benching" and take pictures of us "benching" everywhere xD I could tell you how it all started but it would take too long...xD And I LOVE straddle splits! But not for over a minute though, then the pain from the...

    I Feel Torn.

    So, as some of you may know, I have been faced with an awfully hard decision: ballet or gymnastics. Everything was happy-go-lucky in 8th grade. I had ballet Tues. and Thurs., and gymnastics Wed. And it worked out perfectly! But, I am doing ballet for just ONE more year because I really want to...

    Does this happen to anyone/is this normal???

    Yep, that happens to me. Usually I'll have a really great practice, and then the next one will be just plain awful. :( But then the next one will be okay, the one after that better, and then...bad again. :(

    How Do You Wear Your Hair??

    I just use a ponytail. My hair is long but it doesn't really bother me, except doing jumps on trampoline, it constantly whips and irritates my back...>c< But since we rarely do that, it's all good B)

    Need help ASAP! Gymnasts please help!

    It would really help to know what level you are in and what vault you do, but I'll help as much as possible... Do very simple things and build up. One time I was mounting the high beam from the end using a springboard, I jumped, landed too close to the edge and fell backwards. My head would...

    YKYAGW... The first thing you look for in a playground is the bar You go to the playground just to practice your moves You prefer to walk around your house on your hands You beg your parents to turn a room into your "gym room" The first thing you do after you get a skill is post on the Chalk...

    New here!

    Merp. I read Question #3 wrong, but I can't edit my post. Here's a better answer: 3} Tell her that it looks like fun and that you really want to try it. Let her know that gymnastics isn't just about getting into the high levels. Gymnastics can help you learn stress management and it can help...
