    WAG Advise for mom for first meet

    DD7 is coming up on her very first LVL3 meet! I’m looking for advise from moms and coaches on things to say and not to say before and after the meet. Particularly after, if she performs lower than her expectations or where many of her other teammates get medals and she doesn’t. I know the...

    WAG first meet after being out with an injury

    My DD has her first meet since beginning of December this weekend. She was out with an elbow injury. She just started back training routines and skills a few weeks ago. Prior to that she was doing only limited conditioning. She's still not fully back (elbow not ready for full impact skills)...

    For Parents First meet tomorrow

    My daughter is competing in her first meet tomorrow. She is competing in Amerikids level 1. I know this is a recreational level, but it is the path most of the gymnasts in our gym follow, and we have girls clear up to level 10. Regardless of the level , we are excited for the first meet!

    First Meet Nerves

    Any tips? I'm 14 and will be 15 in July so obviously I'm old for level one which is the old level 2 in Amerikids. I've never done this before so I'm nervous. I just don't want to mess up. And I want to win! But of course I won't be upset if I don't medal. I started again late so I'm getting into...

    For Parents First meet gift?

    Hi Moms! My daughter has her first meet ever in a week and half and I'm hearing that a lot about special gifts parents give for the first meet of the season. This is her first meet ever and she is very excited and nervous. I think a gift is a great idea but I don't know what to get! Any great...

    WAG First meet of the season is all done!

    First meet of the season is done and out of the way. DD did a great job. L3 7-8 year olds she placed 1st on bars and 2nd on everything else. 1st AA. She is beyond thrilled and is more motivated than ever to get that kip that is "this" close so she can move up to L4 mid season. I'm so thankful...

    For Parents First Meet of the Year - Tonight - Judges Cup

    My DD has her first meet of the year this evening! I am nervous for her because she wants to make the national judges cup team for our state. Last year it only took a 35.6 or so AA to make the team. They take the top 5 or 6 from the state to nationals. I don't think some of the larger gyms...

    For Parents Great First Meet!!!

    DD (age 6, level 3) had her first meet. She was so excited to hear her name called for 11th place All Around during the awards ceremony (she said she "never ever" thought her name would be called). Of course she didn't realize that was 11 out of 11 in her age category :-) We are so proud of...

    For Parents First meet of the new season today!

    The girls had their first meet today; it was so much fun :-) I would definitely say that the judges are scoring tougher on the new routines, as I saw in an earlier thread. The scores for our girls were lower than last year, overall, yet we placed higher as a team. Lots of 8s, where we saw more...

    For Parents First Meet Report

    We had our first meet today. It went pretty smoothly, considering everything was new to everyone, including the judges. My DD did pretty well, with the exception of beam. She had one balance check after another. She said something about their beam being hard, but soft at the same time? LOL...
