At practice today, Lexi got her kip! She did it twice, then 2 of her teammates got to ring a bell, one rung it, and the other yelled "Watch Alexis do her kip." She is so excited.
I think it kind of prepares them for competition too, everyone is watching so the pressure is on like a comp. My older son Matt saw it and he said that she will be as good as him somedayYay for Lexi! I love the whole ringing the bell for new skills thing. They do it at my DDs gym and she loves when she gets to ring the bell.
I have noticed that some of the girls don't like the bell and don't want to participate. My DD wants to ring the bell for everything and she always looks much better when all the attention is on her. I hope that will translate to competition. LOL.I think it kind of prepares them for competition too, everyone is watching so the pressure is on like a comp.

Ours is a huge gong, for lack of a better term. It is impossible to miss and the whole gym stops whatever they are doing and watches the gymnast/s who hit the gong do their skill. Pretty cool.How fun! YIPPEE to Lexi for getting her Kip!
I love the bell idea, Maybe we should start doing that at our gym!?
