    For Coaches In-house move up meet

    Has anyone ever done a move up meet in house where you just bring a judge in to score gymnasts out of level 5? At my old gym we used to for (old) level 6 but i am in a new state now and not sure how to request a judge here. Can you just do it for only your team or do you have to invite other...

    For Parents Xcel vs JO ( separation)

    For Coaches Hot shot grips

    Has anyone used hot shot grips recently for their smaller gymnasts? I have always used hot shots because of the narrower palm piece. After "retiring" for a few years to have children, I am back in the gym and when my tops and young optionals were ready for grips I asked them to get Hot shots...

    For Coaches New clarifications for level 6 SR

    Did anyone else notice the latest issue of Technique where it says that level 6 bars now has to be a "clear" circling element from 3 6 or 7? That limits us to the basic clear hip or stalder correct?
