    WAG Meet not telling girls their scores

    My opinion is that these serve more as a way to train towards a goal and manage progress as opposed to setting a bar that needs to be reached to progress to the next level. Goals, timeframe, effort, attitude and possibly pressure; the things our girls will need to understand and manage to be...

    NJ has many good choices but due to commute challenges, your location in the state will influence which are real options. I would suggest looking at mymeetscores for results at nationals Nastia Liukin cup to understand the level of coaching compared to your desires outcomes. The NJ usag...

    WAG USAG + FloSports

    The petition is a good idea. We should all boycott FloGymnastics and encourage others to do so as well.

    WAG USAG + FloSports

    USAG announced they are partnering with FloSports. Last time I checked it was a $30/month subscription :( Hopefully there are other avenues to watch. https://usagym.org/pages/post.html?PostID=25854

    Made the mistake of staying in the awards room too long and ended up with the guitar as a carry on this year. Had a few good laughs and learned a lesson

    WAG What USAG should be doing

    The season is over for sure. It is unfortunate but hopefully just a disappointment and not a more significant event in life's journey. Universities needed to get everyone home before students were sick on campus and the responsibility of the university health system. It was really preemptive...

    Much of the language/tone is related to parent ecpectations. Unfortunately, the behavior and expectations of parents sometimes needs to be clearly stated... Parents are not always on their best behavior. As far as access to practice, it is my understanding that has been modified. Injuries, at...

    WAG Haney under investigation

    Part of my post from Reddit Parents are the most important aspect, it is our job to ensure the safety of our children. Not the USAG, not the coaches, not the gym owners. No result is worth an abusive environment. As parents we need to evaluate, judge and protect. We also have the ultimate say...

    WAG UCLA joins the college scandals

    Great point, but the process is not very transparent and there has been so much in the media about that it is difficult to not wonder. The reality is that every athlete wants fair consideration.

    WAG UCLA joins the college scandals

    100% understand and agree. Ultimately, walk-on may be the path for my daughter in the future. too much time to know the future.. I don't know if there has been anything inappropriate and don't want to imply there was because I know how hard all the athletes work.
