    My daughter's gym is taking a group to the National Gymnastics Training Camp in NY. Does anyone have any experiences with this camp? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I777 using Tapatalk 2

    WAG Wrong age group

    Thank you so much for all of the help. I have been a little disappointed in the gym's help with this matter, but they have had a lot of parents that have been upset about little things and making them into BIG things. I think that they assumed that it was just the grouping for ages. DD is...

    WAG Wrong age group

    That is what I was wondering. Do you know if I can check her date of birth directly with usag? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I777 using Tapatalk 2

    WAG Wrong age group

    That is what we thought was happening, and is the reason why we haven't pushed the gym on it for the last year and a half. I am pretty certain that this is not the case because at the last meet the girl that is six months older than dd was in the right age group based on the breakdown by...

    WAG Wrong age group

    This is my dd second year competing and every meet that she has competed in she has been in the wrong age group for awards, always placed in the age group a year to a year and a half older than her. We have always mentioned it to the coaches, but not made a big deal about it because we have...

    We have had great experiences with Melody Leotards. The Leo's are great and the shipping is fast.

    WAG It happened again......ideas?

    We had similar issues with my daughter and it turned out that it was acid reflux. There are multiple triggers for her, including workouts when she doesn't have enough food in her stomach. Just another possible cause, good luck with the Dr. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I997 using Tapatalk 2

    Moving to Vermont..sorry for the long post

    @Leoaddictsmom-I agree completely! I have no problem driving so that dd has what she needs. The move will put us in a great place financially and allow us to travel when we want to. The difference will be that we will live in a peaceful place and travel to the city, instead of living in the...

    Moving to Vermont..sorry for the long post

    Hello- My daughter is almost 9, and a going into her second year as a level 4. We are most likely moving to Vermont for a wonderful job opportunity, and I am looking for a new gym in VT. We will be living near Stowe, in Hardwick VT, and I have been looking for gyms in the area, and there...

    For Parents photographing gymmies in motion

    We only went to two with a professional photographer, a large invitational and states, so I would say only the big meets. With the cost of the pictures it's probably better that way! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I997 using Tapatalk 2

    For Parents photographing gymmies in motion

    I tried all last season to get some good action shots with a basic dslr camera with mild success. I was able to make great hd video's, and would occasionally remember that I could take still shots as well. At her state meet I was amazed at the pictures that the professional photographer took...

    backhandspring.....legs ....

    My dd would have bent legs in certain skills, usually the "easier" skills where she wasn't thinking about it. It was never a "real" bend, but not a tight, straight leg..enough to be a deduction. Her coach spent months working on drills to help her "feel" the difference, but struggled with...

    Weeks Off?

    @Maryn's Mom.. We had a day like that recently. DD woke up in the middle of the night with a dream that she was doing a back tuck in the back yard and got sucked into a big hole. I called into work the next day, and kept her home from school. We cuddled and watched movies until she decided...

    For Parents No parents allowed

    I agree with your entire post dunno, but this portion especially. My dd is an 8 year old level 4. I had been watching practice about once every two weeks until about a month and a half ago. Dd was coming home from practice thinking that her coach didn't like her and that she wasn't good...

    For Parents Gym changes~ what would you do?

    Our gym had a similar turnover with a coach from the optional levels about a year and a half ago. All of the higher level girls followed their coach and the gym was at a rebuilding stage. To keep a long story short, the gym's dedication to rebuild the program with a strong new coaching staff...

    Melody Leotard Deals

    My dd is between a CM and CL as well. A medium is the right width, but not quite long enough, a child large is too wide. The child intermediate from Melody Leo's fit her perfectly. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I997 using Tapatalk

    How many injuries are normal?

    I have never seen any gymnast land on their head and or neck in the way that you describe. Even if a child "has a skill" a coach is still there spotting for the younger girls on the vault and bars. Girls that are working independently on bars are doing a specific drill with appropriate mats...

    For Parents Coaches comments and competitive parents

    Our gym will group girls of similar ability together because the coach says that some skills are "contagious ". She finds that if 2-3 girls have moved through the levels together that they will realize that "if Suzie can get her kip then I can too". My dd and her bff have been paired...
