    For Coaches Booster Club Question/ How do you handle meet profits?

    Is the booster club hosting the meet at your gym? If yes, this is absolutely the most important reason why the club should benefit financially - you are running a business. Depending on the size of the meet, your gym's equipment is being used, you may have to close the gym from rec classes...

    deductions for coaches being on the floor

    no deduction for coach on the floor. As far as the coach spotting, it depends. If it is a landing only, it's .5. If it's for an element, value of the element +.5

    Level 5 judging... what are they looking for?

    Aside from the extra steps into the tumbling, there is some leg separation in the tumbling, insufficient leg separations where required - and some text errors. C did a great job though, and she is as cute as a button :)

    8 Year Old TOPs

    My daughter did them on her own on the high beam, honestly, I don't remember when exactly - probably around 6. I am sure she probably just saw the big girls doing them on the high beam and took interest and then wanted to try for herself. She personally prefers to do her continuous presses on...

    straddle jump ??

    To improve, perhaps your dd can try the ankle weights, & straddle jump on the tramp or the bouncy tumble track (I still have no idea what this is called haha). Also the stretchy bands on the gym floor work really well. Maybe her coach would let her do them before practice...
