My almost 6 yr old (in sep) just recently "officially" made the level 5 team at our gym. She still can't compete for another year and a half but she will be able to progress on the level 5 track and then when she is ready, level 6. I am hoping that other parents of young gymnasts can provide advice to help avoid/limit overuse injuries... Our coaches already limit repetitions for their girls and use mats for most of power tumbling. Does anyone visit an orthopaedic dr. on a regular basis? If yes, then what types of ?'s are most important to ask? and for the gym what do you really need to watch out for? Which excercises/skills are the worst on the body?
