Hi, I am new here and to gymnastics. I have a 5 and 3 1/2 y/o girl. They both started gymnastics in December. They are both doing well. I am glad I found a sport my 5 y/o really likes and appears to be good at. She has not wanted to even try and other sports.
Can someone explain this whole level thing to me, and when they can make team, how old to compete, etc.? I never did gymnastics and feel like I need a little manual.
The other question I have is how do you know if your kid is at the right gym? I don't want her to be pushed too much, but if she is good, are they doing enough?

Welcome! Glad to have you. This is a wonderful place to learn lots about the sport. My DD is a 6 year old level 4. Make sure and join the 'Parent' group so you can post in there too.
