    For Parents mid-meet season vent

    So, every year I can't wait until meet season starts...so I can see the girls perform their new routines and see how they are going to score, etc. I even like packing up and heading out on weekend trips at the BEGINNING of meet season. Right now, we are over halfway through the season with...

    WAG What makes BWO on beam go wrong?

    My DD has her first level 6 meet in 2 weeks. She has really struggled on and off with the BWO on beam. She "has" the skill, as in she has landed it many, many times, but there are days where she is constantly going sideways and can't land a single one. Why does this happen? Is this...

    Conquered the back tuck!

    Just HAD to share this one...my older DD who has struggled and struggled and struggled some more with back tumbling spent today at a spring break "camp" at our gym and got her ROBHSBT! I am SO proud of her because she has been scared of/avoiding this skill for quite awhile now and today she got...

    Ok, for the past week or so, every time I try to reply to a thread, my computer freezes and poof my post is gone. I'm sad! Any ideas of what it could be?

    Still improving!

    The girls competed in a very far away travel meet this weekend...we were there for 4 days...to say that I am exhausted is a tiny bit of an understatement. Older DD really rocked the meet (see my other post)...and I am happy to say younger DD rocked in her own way...personal best AA score and...

    Crazy good meet for older DD

    I love being able to finally post something "crazy good" about my girls! Older DD had a huge meet this weekend and did a great job. She was so happy and it was so good to see her happy after a disappointing meet last weekend AND after hurting her ankle at practice Thursday night. She ended up...

    Meet this weekend, newish beam routine for older DD

    Hello all, would love for some good wishes especially for older DD this weekend. She is doing a new-ish beam routine (has taken out the BWO and is adding cartwheel-cartwheel or cartwheel with handstand...can't remember). She has not stayed on beam yet this season so would LOVE some stay on the...

    Meet report for all 3!

    First of all tiny DD had her preteam exhibition and it was the cutest thing ever. They did floor and beam...no bars so she did not get to try out her new pullover. Oh well. They could have stood there and did nothing and it would have still been awesome because they are all so cute. I hope...

    Have to brag about tiny DD...

    She got her pullover today...just in time for her big "meet" this weekend (pre-team exhibition at a meet, but she calls it her meet, poor thing has been watching meets for basically her whole life). She has been really trying hard to get it and she did it 2 times today all by herself. So...

    Meet report-first one done! LONG

    Well the first meet is over. I will start by saying I never want to have 2 girls competing on different sides of the gym. I about went nuts! I never sat down once, running back and forth trying to see both and video both!:eek: Little DD...first I will say that she improved her AA score by 2...

    Leaving for first meet of the season tomorrow!

    We are leaving for the girls' first meet of the season tomorrow after school. The girls compete in the same session on different sides of the gym at 8am Saturday morning. Should be interesting! I have to have 2 heads of hair done at the same time! Older DD is very nervous about beam. I am...

    For Parents Anxious for the first meet!

    The girls are about a month away from their first meet of the season. I am really anxious to get that first meet over with...older DD is doing prep opt so I have not the slightest clue on how she will score (it is so much easier when you know what the compulsory routines are supposed to look...

    For Parents Good news for tiny DD!

    But not for my wallet...tiny DD was invited to preteam today!:p She is SO excited because she gets to "stay a long time" at gym now...she SOO wants to be like her big sisters! She was already talking about "what happens when I get on the team". DH was not too excited about the prospect of maybe...

    For Parents Does anyone else worry while watching gymmies practice?

    Last year, my DD experienced a couple minor injuries, a scary fall off the high bar, and had a repetitive use injury with her knee. She hurt her ankle pretty badly last year at practice doing...of all things...the hitchkick in the L5 floor routine. Of course every time I watched her do the...

    For Parents Anyone else have a DD doing prep op in region 8?

    My older DD is competing prep op gold this season. She is learning all kinds of new skills and doing all kinds of new moves...and it is very overwhelming and confusing! My girls have always done compulsory so I have always known just what they were supposed to be doing and what stuff was...

    How many hours of practice for L5? L6?

    Hi all, We are in the middle of trying to adjust to a new gym, adjust to my older daughter's new dance schedule, and adjust to life in general. It's not going so well.:p Just kidding. Just lots to figure out. How many hours do your teams practice L5 per week? What about L6? Just trying to...

    For Parents New gym, new skills...good wishes appreciated!

    Well after 4 years we made the decision to switch gyms. The girls have had two practices at the new gym and older DD already has a few new skills...BWO on beam, front tuck, and a bunch of new tumbling passes (I don't even know what they are!) on the tumble track!:) That's the good news. The...

    little tiny TOPs brag!

    Little DD had her first TOPs testing today. She is not quite there on the straddle presses and the cast handstands, but she's worked hard and gotten a lot better on many of the skills. Her coach did come out proudly today and tell me that she got a perfect score on her bridge! And a point...
