    XP Floor Routine Deductions?

    Thanks everyone! You’ve confirmed much of what I suspected! I’ll keep my fingers crossed that she’ll get tighten up and point those toes a little more...!

    XP Floor Routine Deductions?

    My DD is competing Xcel platinum with the hopes of moving over to level 7 next year. She was originally heading to level 5, but our compulsory gymnast moved to xcel due to the season being cancelled. One of the events she’s struggled with is floor, she usually scores between a 8.9 and 9.1...

    Level 4 vault

    She knew what your level 10 meant lol! She said that last night she asked her coach what she was doing wrong and she said hollow and tighter. I know what she means by get on the table faster, my DD’s run is quite slow. She doesn’t think she can control her landing if she runs at full speed.

    Level 4 vault

    Hi there! My DD is just about to enter competition season as a level 4. For some reason she is having some trouble with vaulting without an arch. Level 4 Vault Video We are thinking of getting her some privates, but I’m wondering if there are any thoughts/observations on where we should focus...

    For Parents Help on level 3 vault

    Thank you all! It’s much appreciated. She worked on it today, and she seems to be excited about some of the corrections she was informed of by her coach, which seem consistent here. I think we’ve all told her about her run :) so that was spot on. Hoping she’ll get it corrected in time for her...

    For Parents Help on level 3 vault

    This will be my daughter’s second year competing, she did xcel gold and is now doing level 3 JO. Last year she competed a front hand spring on vault, and her highest score was an 8.6, though in general she scored in the low 8s. She just had an intrasquad meet and I am noticing that she seems to...

    Bent arms on kip & front hip circl

    I haven't had the discussion, and honestly am not sure if I am (or how to go about it). While I do think it would have benefited us to do silver, and am heavily considering moving her down so that she can have less pressure to compete the things she just isn't ready to compete, I think I have to...

    Bent arms on kip & front hip circl

    I'm glad to hear that these things *should* south themselves out with time. Today her AA was the same as the last meet, a 32.15 and I was a bit disappointed. I know she's been more focused and really trying to correct her mistakes, but it didn't translate into a higher score. I tried to point...

    Bent arms on kip & front hip circl

    Yes! I have realized that a lot of gold girls have simplified routines (even those on our team). Me and my DH have went back and forth about whether to ask the coach to minimize the routine or not. I do think competing them helps to build her confidence/makes her try harder. Today her kip was...

    You were spot on! Our coach brought it up to me after the meet. Hopefully they can begin to work on correcting it. Thanks for the advice!!

    Bent arms on kip & front hip circl

    Thanks for all of the feedback everyone! Today she was able to do a glide kip and maintain straight arms! We were all so proud. Her FHC still had bent arms, so I think it will be pulled from her routine. She received the same score as her last meet, and a judge specifically pointed out her cast...

    Lol, I didn't even notice! But thanks so much!! I appreciate all the input as this is a new world for us both!

    Bent arms on kip & front hip circl

    Her back hip circle is a part of her dismount, so from my understanding it wouldn't count. I think she could add it to the lower bar and be fine. Here's a video of it, her form in it seems to be less bent than her front hip circle.

    Bent arms on kip & front hip circl

    Thanks for the advice. I agree about moving her down due to the 8, her coach also talked about the ability to take her FHC out of her routine but the more I read all of the advice on here, I think she should continue to compete it and practice at making it better. I think this post allowed me to...

    Thank you, all of this advice has been quite helpful. I think gym has been giving us both some anxiety, we are going to make sure we keep the fun in it!

    Bent arms on kip & front hip circl

    That was correct for the old code of points, as I am reading the new one it appears that poor rythym/connections is up to a .10 deduction for each occurence

    Bent arms on kip & front hip circl

    It was released in July 2017. I found the updated rules https://usagym.org/PDFs/Women/xcel/cop_rev_072817_2.pdf Thanks for letting me/us know!

    Milgymfam, thanks for the clarification! I think it's when you haven't had previous competitive experience you don't have to score out, you are just placed where your coach sees fit *up to the gold level*, which is what happened to us.

    Bent arms on kip & front hip circl

    Jared- thanks for bringing that to my attention, I guess it's something she'll need to focus on in the future. Xcel gold doesn't deduct for it, but platinum and above do deduct .30. I'm guessing that deduction will be there in compulsory as well.
