    For Parents Too many hours (gymnastics) / switch sports

    Agree that 25 hours is too much! My daughter is a level 9 and is at gym 22 hours a week. I feel like she’s always there with 22 hours a week! That’s the highest our gym goes hour wise and I feel it is plenty. Do the hours increase from 25? I wouldn’t think she could do school with more hours...

    WAG Level 9 floor routine

    My daughter is competing 9. No double back - want to say she’s going to do a ro bh 1.5 front pike… and a front layout front full and I’m guessing one other pass. I think it’s a 10 start but not sure. Agree that if they’re going to do level 10 for 3-5 years it doesn’t matter at all.

    For Parents For the love of the sport: “Should I stay or should I go”

    My daughter never won a meet in level 2-5. She was scoring around 36 for most meets…Once she hit level 7 and 8 she did start winning! And scoring in the 38s… I agree with others who say lower levels do not indicate future success or failure. My daughter has always always always LOVED the...

    For Parents How to move to competitive gymnastics

    It never hurts to ask! When I signed up my 6 year old daughter I wasn’t sure if I should start her in the beginner or intermediate rec class. She had learned a lot of skills just tumbling in the house. After 45 minutes, the head coach came to me and asked if she could complete level 2 in the...
