    For Parents Reminder for parents - Meet Etiquette

    Our booster club had to pay the gym for the use of it for meets, as they were loosing money on not having birthday parties, so having an outside venue is not the only time a cost is incurred. it is something you might not think about, though. I was manning the door to the gym one time at a...

    For Parents Ganglion cyst surgery?

    My Daughter has one on the top of her foot. the pain comes and goes. Apparently when it shifts it presses on a nerve. She refused to have it drained, hates needles, so she just lives with the issue. I would sometimes really bother her when vaulting. I think it was the way the pressure was when...

Now they ony do prep op and the others who don't want to come to the gym as much do AAU. Our gym scores out of 5 and 6, and the girls either do prep platinum or...

    Coaches Fees

    $100 a day for food seems a bit much. Is that for the whole weekend or per day? Our coaches usually stay in hotels that offer breakfast, and they get fed at the meets, so usually only one meal to purchase and if at the meet all day they can get fed breakfast, lunch and dinner for free. But even...

The girls love it, and it must be working for our gym, at the state meets our gym got 1st place team for all...

    Gyms in Virginia

    I went to JMU, it is a great school. There used to be a NCAA team there, but it was disbanded. Some of the girls went on to the club team and some transfered to other schools.
