    Training at two gyms? Right or wrong?

    I can't practice more at gym A because at my level/group of levels (Prep Op/Xcel) I already practice the "maximum" amount.. 3 days per week 2.5 hrs each. which isn't enough for me. My coach is only at the gym that many times a week.. It's not possible. :/

    Training at two gyms? Right or wrong?

    Hi, I'm considering continuing practice (3 days a week) at my current gym lets call this gym A. And I want to add another day or two to my practices.. at gym B. The thing is, these gyms are in the same city, and are HUGE rivals. They make sure none of their gymnasts compete at any of the same...

    Are 'B' level skills allowed in prep op/excel novice/silver?

    I was bored so I decided to look through the code of points, and I saw a 'B' level skill. It's a full turn, but you don't put your foot down, and go to a scale. I want it in my floor routine, but I might not be allowed to.. Does anyone know? I'd appreciate it. BQ: What's the worst that...

    Anybody Else Start Late?

    I started late too. When i was 12 I went to this place called: (name of the city) Dance and Gymnastics, thinking I would learn something.. but their gymnastics was just a hardwood floor with some panel mats laid out. of course, I hated that, so I went to open gym EVERY saturday for months. I got...
