    WAG Junior Elite is so confusing!

    I don't desperately need to know this or anything, just want to know because I like knowing everything when it comes to gymnastics. Do Junior Elite gymnasts compete a compulsory and an optional routine until they achieve the required compulsory score and then drop it? Is that right? Answers...

    Anon What level should elite qualifiers compete?

    I have a question. I know many gyms train up and compete down, but if you made an elite compulsory qualifying score, but competed level 8 for season doesn't that just mean you should be competing at a higher level? One of the gyms in our area qualified 3 kids. 2 of the 3 were competing in elite...

    MAG Elite Team Cup/Winter Cup

    Thought it would be fun to start a thread on these. Anyone watch podium training tonight? Region 3 was looking strong. Hoping Region 8 comes through and makes a great showing, they were also looking good, (I'm biased). And question, is Winter Cup basically the same as ETC, just for the older...

    WAG Elite gymnast

    What is the definition of an elite gymnast? Are girls considered elite once they reach a certain optional level or do they need to go beyond that and try out for the title of elite. I did look around online but what I saw wasn't very clear or maybe I didn't look in the right place. Thanks!
