    For Parents Compulsory Level 2-4 Gym DFW

    My DD had tryouts at 2 gyms in DFW for Level 3 and I'm not sure how to evaluate the differences. One is Kurt Thomas and one is WOGA. I've considered adding Metroplex but we didn't have a good experience with them at the preschool level several years ago even though people rave about that gym...

    For Parents Fall State Meet Compulsory qualification with spring score?

    My daughter competed 3 spring 2022 level 5 meets. Does she need to compete level 5 in the fall to qualify for states if she already qualified in all 3 20222 spring meets? Would rather focus on optionals training in fall. There was no state meet in the spring FYI, unlike during the 2021 when...

    For Parents Advice for Pre-Team and Compulsory Parents from Optional Parents

    My gymnast is now training for level 8. The past few months, I’ve had a few parents of compulsory and preteam gymnasts asking for advice. I thought this would be a great place for parents of optional level gymnasts to share some valuable wisdom that we have learned over the years. So optional...

    For Parents Compulsory Coach Bios

    Wondering what is typical for a compulsory coach's experience/age? There has been a good bit of turnover at our gym and one of the new coaches (not assistant coach) for two apparatuses of the lower level compulsory teams is 16 years old. We don't know why she's coaching instead of competing...

    I apologize if this has been asked recently, but I couldn’t find anything. Is there an official source for the new women’s compulsory routines that’s accessible to parents? TIA.

    For Parents Ode to compulsory music

    So at our end of year program I got to hear what I hope is the last of this go round of compulsory music. And I know I’m in the minority but Level 5 might be favorite of the lot. :cool:

    For Coaches New Compulsory routines

    Does anyone know when materials (videos and printed) will be available for the new compulsory routines? I’ve seen the posted workshop dates (August for Region 5) but was wondering if materials will be released sooner. I coach at a park district and our compulsory season begins in August.

    Compulsory levels

    Hi all, I just wondered whether anyone knew what was happening with the compulsory levels now? This year's didn't go ahead in most regions, so what happens to those girls? Do they need to take them next spring? But that's when they should have taken the next's tricky with a system...

    WAG Bendy Gymnast in Compulsory

    My DD has severe hyper mobility; she passes the EDS flexibility test with flying colors. She’s a level 4 and it has been a frustrating journey for her. She can do all of the skills, but has a hard time pushing her knee caps down. Her straight leg doesn’t look straight and the judges dock her big...

    WAG 2021-2029 Compulsory Sneak Preview

    What does everyone think about the proposed changes? I’m a fan of the front walkover option for level 5 beam. I also think the new level 5 beam dismount will be a better transition to optionals.
