Hi. I am a parent to two gymnasts. My son is an 11-year-old level 5. He is working towards his second year as a level 5. He did not score high enough to go to regionals last year and wants to score higher this year. My daughter is a 7-year-old level 4. This is her second year competing level 4. She placed 3rd at state last year. She also has all her level 5 skills. However, she was injured in June. She hit the springboard wrong and her ankle rolled. Her growth plate pulled away from the bone. Her orthopedist put her into a boot for one month. While in the boot, the coaches made level decisions for the team. Because of uncertainty about how she would recover, she was put back to level 4.
