    For Parents Tops National Test Score Calculation

    I was at A and B with gymnasts last year, A did have more than 45. Sometimes kids have the same scores. I also know in the past if theres a team mate going to both, scores are close and coaches having a conflict its been allowed for them to attend the same camp,, Not sure if that was the case

    For Parents Giants without grips?

    Both my daughters had very small hands and performed without grips up through level 9. One finally adapted the other hated the feel and would" forget" them often.

    For Parents TOP's Testing

    Personally IMO this is an expensive sport as it is and I would not have wanted our kids and parents to incur the added expense to "just get their feet wet".

    For Parents Petty Vent

    Look at it another way.. Your son is shy, probably more so around a head coach. This coach coaches him once a week. The coach may be waiting for him to open and say.."I got this coach". I always tell my team.. (girls) that if Im giving them feedback and corrections and asking questions, its...

    For Parents TOPs state testing

    In 2 tests there were kids that were trying these skills and definitely not ready for them.. Im talking not just falling or missing a skill but, dangerously falling. To the point of the tester having to intervene

    For Parents TOPs state testing

    Today was the last of our 3 tests.(2 in state ,1 out of state). Definitely the best test for my 9yr olds. All 3 tests had 16-18 kids. All 3 had 1 or 2 7yrolds testing.. Personally I was surprised at the caliber at the tests compared to previous year.

    The front tuck is section 3 of the floor testing. If she fell she received a 0 for just that section.

    For Parents X-Brace

    My gymnasts use the Xbrace. I had not seen them until we went to developmental camp. They say it helps and you can feel difference in support right away. We had always used the cheetah heel cups but, unfortunately they do not fit everyone properly and many were experiencing heels sliding...
