    For Coaches New Xcel Program

    This is a great question! We run both the Xcel program and JO program at our gym. At this time we have had more kids move from the Xcel program to JO rather than the other way around. The only ones who have moved from JO to Xcel were families that did not want to commit to the number of...

    The Holiday Season

    A couple of ideas: First, we have automatic re-enrollment. The kids are automatically enrolled from month to month unless the parent completes a cancellation form. This way families can not just "disappear." Also, we vary our tuition based on the number of classes each month. Some months cost...

    Thank you all for your insight. We have decided to stick with our plan and offer the days and hours to our competitive team.

    Getting Parents to commit

    Does anyone have any advice on getting parents to commit to having their girls on team? We are struggling with families complaining about costs and amount of time the girls must commit to. For example our level 4s are supposed to go 3 days a week for 2.5 hours each workout for the summer. Does...

    For Coaches Coaching pregnant??

    I coached until the day I had both girls! I had one parent come to me after class and ask "Does your Dr. know you are doing all this activity?" I laughed and pointed to my Dr. who was standing in the hallway at the time!! I said "Why don't you ask her?" It is perfectly safe to continue doing the...

    Pullovers

    At Region 4 Congress this year Tom Forster gave some great drills for pullovers. One thing he talked about was having kids "race" into pullovers. Set up 2 girls in front of a low bar. Let the kids run into their pullover and see who can get to a nice hollow body shape on the bar first. Worked...

    We are fairly new gym owners. We have taken our time buying equipment and buy only what is needed. We are at the point where we have all recreational kids and one level 4 team. We are looking to buy either the vault table or the vault table trainer. We have limited space and thought that the...

    For Coaches UNGH! Why do they quit?

    At Region 4 Congress Wendy Weiss gave a very interesting talk on maintaining kids in the sport of gymnastics. She did an intense research study. Although it was all girls who were used for the study it did open my eyes to why the kids quit. Regardless it is very frustrating!!
