    Coaches Inflatable Foam Pits

    Hoping someone out there can give me some advice. Our gym is not in a position to build an in ground pit so I have been looking at alternative solutions. Does anyone know anything about inflatable foam pits? Their pro's and con's. Or maybe air pillows? Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Can anyone help me with the level 6 passage of dance requirement. I need clarification (and maybe some examples) of what leaps or hops would meet the term 180 cross / side split or straddle. We are going to use a switch leap for one of the leaps but are looking for a good option for the second...

    WAG Shorts at meets

    I actually like the look of Leo's with shorts as well rather than just a leotard. The girls also seem to feel more comfortable with shorts on, especially as they get older. I'd be all for a change to competing with shorts on.

    WAG Im shy

    Try to talk to your coach as well. It really helps to know if you understand what they are trying to teach you. They would probably also be more than happy to try and help you build some friendships with the other girls.

    Coaches Twisting Again

    I'm blond and female and that's my excuse for being no good with my left and my right (and twisting). ☺️ The link shows one of my gymnasts. She is just starting to twist. So in this video she twists to the right? Yes? She shortens her left side and pulls her left arm across her body. Should her...

    Coaches Twisting Again

    I know there is a lot out there on twisting but I can't find the answer to my specific question (or maybe I did but couldn't see it for all the other information out there). I'm in the process of researching twisting to better understand the process. My understanding is that whether forwards...
