    WAG Featured Coaches, what do you think of parents that watch the entire practice?

    We are so grateful our gym has a camera app!! We love DD’s coaches too! It’s a far drive, but I don’t need to worry since I trust she is in great hands and I can check out a new skill if she tells me to check the app before practice. Our rec parents mostly stay and watch, team parents never stay.

    For Parents Best leo brands?

    Sylvia P is DD’s fave. It’s lined, great quality, not high cut on hips, and cute designs. She also likes GK but it’s very popular and she likes to be unique.

    For Parents Coach not letting gymnast progress

    Totally understand how gymnasts and parents become frustrated when they feel their kid can do more. But trust that your coach knows what he/she is doing. Skill progression through drills promotes proper form which is needed for high scores, further progression and most of all- safety! After...

    For Parents Nutrition for Gymnasts when training through evening meal times?

    Hi! PB&j with some fresh fruit (banana, raspberries, or apple) and a protein bar in the car. Lots of water! Then late dinner at home usually around 8:30, homework, shower and bed.

    For Parents Feeling discouraged

    While making it to a college team sounds awesome, the only thing you as a parent can do that will always be the right thing is support your daughter on a day to day basis. Showing her you are on her team will be something you will never look back and regret. Plus gymnastics and life are...

    For Parents Switch from Xcel Silver to JO?

    Def talk to her coach. If your daughter loves it and wants to do more, I don’t think you’ll regret helping her explore that. Plus your daughter will be happy mama is in her corner supporting her : ) L3 at our gym is 3.5 hours 3 days a week. I think most L3 is 9-10 hours a week. L4 jumps to 14...
