I was thinking... my daughters gym seems to have their gymnast do tougher than required skills for their levels. Which in some levels those types of routines will score better, but i feel level 9's judging isn't conducive to girls doing harder routines. It seems like the gyms that have their girls go in with simplified and clean routines seems to score better. Which can be very frustrating, both for the gymnast and us parents... My daughter will be repeating level 9 this year because the coaches think theres no reason for the younger ones to rush to 10 and be at level 10 for 7 years.. So instead they will repeat them. My daughter has level 10 skills to compete 10, except vault she is still working on getting her full. So currently doing a layout. My feelings are all over the place, while my daughter could care less. ha ha..
