    WAG Tryout for JO Compulsory

    My 9 year old daughter has been doing gymnastics recreationally, once a week, for about 2 years. She recently joined the Xcel team at her gym and was ready to move up to level 4 in the rec classes before she joined Xcel. She's been insisting she wants to do JO so I pushed and the JO coaches...

    Club Grade gymnastics vs Compulsory

    Hi, new to this forum but just after some info. My daughter ( 6) has been in a squad for nearly a year now. We weren't really told anything at the time about what she would be competing and I didn't know how it all worked anyway. Fast forward to now, she's in a lovely group with other girls (all...

    Parents No results/scores posted for a compulsory meet... very upset

    We recently had a USAG sanctioned, official meet with levels 3/4/5. Our girls did great, including my DD, who scored a 38.8 AA, unexpected and her highest AA ever... While we got the awards ceremony, and I know my DD’s scores, the hosting gym did not post results anywhere. Not on their website...

    WAG Compulsory order

    I overheard some moms talking this weekend while waiting for our kids, and I’m really curious to know if this is true. Several said that at meets, the order that the coaches put the girls in is ranked by how “good” they are. For ex- as each team competes, the “worst” kids on the team go first...

    Parents Do you go to out-of-state meets as a compulsory level gymnast?

    This question may seem naive; my dd is a level 4 and been to the same gym since she started. Last year our gym started to travel to out-of-state meets, mandatory for optional but not for compulsories although it was strongly encouraged. We, as a family, decided to skip on these travels because...

    Anyone heard of new rules for this competition season concerning age limits on levels, for instance-level 5 capped at age 12, not allowing anyone over 12 to compete, 13 and over must compete as level 6? Thanks, Clay A.

    MAG Compulsory scoring

    (My question is specific to Level 6, Division I where it matters.) First level 6 meet was this past weekend, definitely some successes and weaknesses. But for the first time, the scorecard had start values marked on it. (At least, I'm assuming that's what SV meant.) I'm trying to figure out...

    WAG Can you use USAG compulsory music in optionals?

    Okay, so the USAG compulsory music is awful! But, just out of curiosity, can someone in JO use the compulsory (probably level 4 or 5, since it's longer) music in optionals, but with different choreography?

    Parents Strong compulsory vs. strong optionals

    I've been surprised by the number of gyms that absolutely kill it at the compulsory levels and then have almost no upper level optionals, and OTOH, by programs that are only about average with compulsory athletes, but powerhouses in the upper levels. Is this a philosophy a gym usually adopts...

    WAG Compulsory judges, help me settle an argument!

    I'm not even going to go into the back argument here, but... Compulsory judges, this is all about starting position on floor. My understanding is this: Right-handed gymnasts should start to the right of the judges table on the floor, left-handed gymnasts start to the left side of the...

    WAG Compulsory Routines Practice 2017-2018

    I'm curious. When does your DD's gym start working on compulsory routines for the upcoming competition season? My DD is a level 4 and I've noticed they don't start learning routines until the end of August, with their first meet in December. They work on the next level skills immediately...
