Exactly what I'm thinking. Our competition season is 3 months away for optionals and 3.5 to 4 months away for compulsories. The coaches and owners are still trying to come up with the competition schedule and the team roster for who does what.You folks really start the season early!
Yes, we have the option to send each child either Achievement or Placement. Either way, the scores are flashed, but in Achievement they all come away with ribbons for each event (different colors based on the score range) and a medal for AA. In Placement they are divided between age groups and ranked by score for each event, so they have to earn their medals.Congrats to them!! You guys do places for levels 4 & 5 too? Here in MN--they can't even flash scores for level 4 and level 5 are achievement awards only-- no places.
Oh, I never really thought about the seeing it over and over part. I'm always the gymnast who is REALLY nervous, even when it is just a "fun" meet (aka don't have to qualify for anything), so it is kind of hard for me to imagine getting more nervous than I am at meets now. Sorry if my question seemed rude or anything. Thanks.gymluvr33- We get nervous because we want our girls to be successful. We can only do so much in training them and teaching them, but when it comes to a meet, it's up to them to pull it off and we want so badly for them to do it. What makes it worse is that unlike for the gymnast, it's not just one routine on each event, it's over and over and over until all your girls have gone.
Sorry if my question seemed rude or anything. Thanks.
