Anyone going to the YMCA nationals this summer in Wisconsin? The people who are at Y's but also compete at private clubs do you go to Y nationals?
Heh, so I'm not the only one who's had that problem! Gotta love New York State schools and Regents Exams....I had to miss competing in another (non gymnastics) national contest last year for the same reason. Just about every other state in the country is out by then and the few states that aren't don't have Regents exams so you can skip school. State Ed Dept won't let the Regents exams leave the state so having my chaperone proctor the test while I was in Maryland wasn't an option even if they gave the test during the same time as the rest of the state.Hi,
Unfortunately, our Y won't be sending anyone to Nationals this year because NY schools are still in session and NYS Regent Exams are all the week Nationals is going on. I don't think there will be a large NY showing this year.
It's a shame - our Y participates in Nationals every year and last year 14 girls went ranging from Level 4 to 9. It was my daughters first experience going, and it was a blast! We were looking forward to bringing her this year but.....
Hopefully next year school will be out.
We have regionals and nationals in June so we dont do new skills really. I have regionals June 8th I think? Then we have some time to practice like two weeks or something then its off to Wisconsin!! YEAH!! I've only been to one nationals the one in Washington because at my gym we don't go until level 7 so im a level 8 gonna be competing it my 2nd nationals!
New York Can't go? That really stinks. I think most of us would convince our parents to let us skip school. Nationals doesn't happen every month!
