    For Parents Advice for Pre-Team and Compulsory Parents from Optional Parents

    I have a 2nd year level 10, who is in high school. This year she decided that she still loves gymnastics, but doesn't want to do it in college. Don't let your gymnast give up things or miss events for gymnastics.

    WAG Would a gymnast have to scratch if she arrives in a different Leo than team comp Leo?

    My daughter used to go to a gym where each girl was allowed to select their own leo, they could be any color or style. My daughter's current gym has sometimes had a mix of leos when changing to a new style. The only deduction for leos would be for improper attire, such as spaghetti straps or...

    For Parents New Xcel Division?

    It was mentioned at Congress in the Xcel Update. They are calling it Xcel Plus currently, with a name TBD. I understood it was being piloted in 2 regions, but didn't pay attention to which ones because it wasn't my region.

    WAG Level 8 beam questions.

    I just realized that I said she could do a switch leap, but didn't specify that's a C and isn't restricted. She could add a B to it for her dance series or just do the switch alone in addition to another dance series, such as split jump beat jump. Some Bs are split jump, straddle jump, tuck 1/2...

    WAG Inconsistent judging scores

    It's just math. This is just hypothetical, but if there are 5 up to .3 deductions and 1 judge takes .2 on each and 1 judge takes .1 on each, there is already a .5 difference. Judges scores have to be with a certain range. The range is 10-9.5=.2, 9.475- 9= .5, 8.975-8=1.0, etc. For these...

    WAG Level 8 beam questions.

    There's no balance or flexibility skill requirement. There is a dance series requirement, but that could be met other ways. To not have a composition deduction she needs 2B and 1 A dance skills. If her A is a full turn then she still needs 2 Bs, which could be switch leap + Split jump or even...

    For Parents Are your kids able to compete this season?

    Gymnasts on my daughter's team are competing if they are willing to travel from our area with a VERY high Covid rate to other states with very high Covid rates. So yes, gymnasts on her team are competing and no, she is not. First year level 10 as a sophomore is shot.

    Covid, large meets, and Arizona

    My family has been very careful as well, with gym being our family's main risk factor. My daughter's gym signed up for only out of state meets and the only one I opted for her to attend is in AZ in February. In looking at that meet I thought with the size of the convention center and the...

    For Parents What do you consider to be a good score?

    When my daughter was in L3-L8 we thought scores of 9.5 and above were good and a 38 AA. We were definitely disappointed with anything under 37. At L9 it became a lot more difficult and an 8.5 was an good score on bars for her. This year for L10, we are just hoping she survives and hopefully...

    For Parents 2021 season

    R1, 3 out of state (2 that are driving distance) and 2 in state which I doubt will happen. We are skipping the flyaway meet and 1 of the out of state meets. I'm hoping that the 2 in state meets will be switched to virtual. I've also noticed that my daughter's coach avoided the big convention...

    Short term relocation - gym recommendations

    Tomorrow CA is announcing which counties are returning to the strictest Covid tier and I'm pretty sure San Diego is going to be one of them. Many gyms in CA are only allowed to practice outside, so while you may enjoy the weather, it won't be the workout your gymnasts are used to.

    For Parents Amenorrhea

    Everyone in my family always started early around 10. My daughter didn't get hers until age 15 after a few months of no gym in the spring. Several girls from her team also started during the months at home.

    For Parents Level 8 skills

    There is a composition deduction for not up to level on floor in a two pass routine. A lot of coaches go this route because a 3rd pass or C skill would incur more deductions. If she can do a 1 1/2 instead of the full there is no deduction or she could add a 3rd pass.
