I'm a very proud father of a level 6 gymnast. I love the sport of gymnastics and love watching our girls in our gym compete. We have just returned from Wichita, KS after watching our gym's only level 9 compete in the Level 9-10 regionals. She had a rough day and did not qualify for Westerns though. I love the fact that we support each other so well. There were 18 of us that traveled from Oklahoma City to cheer her on. Anyway, I will have to make some tough decisions for my daughter's future and thought I would run some of my thoughts by you guys here. I'll check back in when it's not so late.

Can't wait to here your opinions and chatting with you later.


Welcome! It's cool to have such a supportive group of people in a gym.

I look forward to hearing your Gymnastics story. The posters on this site have helped me and my DD through some rough times this past competition season!

I hope we can assist you and the gymnast in your life.

Welcome to the Chalk Bucket. My DD is a level 6 also. I think it's great that you all went to regionals to support your gymnast. I'm sure it meant more to her than you realize.

Again..... welcome!
