    Optional Floor Routine

    Do most optional gymnast change their music and floor choreograph every year even if they are repeating level 7 or 8. Is it common to carry the same song and choreograph into the next season. Just wondering how that works.

    Optional USAG Changes for 09-13

    So I am curious if anyone knows the rationale for taking "C" skills out of Level 8 except for dance elements and a few bar skills. I really have no opinion either way I was curious. My DD is bummed she has some "C" skills she has been working on and will not be able to do them at level 8. I...

    Choreograph Optional Floor Routine

    We have a small optional team, 1 or 2 girls, if one coach takes a special interest and uses her artistic talent and time to choreograph a floor routine; should the coach be paid extra for this choreograph or is this just part of the job. How is this handled at other gyms? One other questions...

    Rec Optional and USAG Level 7 question

    I have a question on how Rec Optional can fit into possibly advancing into L7 (USAG) if at all. So my question is: Can you use a Rec Opt Advanced meet as some sort of qualifier for Optional L7 (USAG)? If it is a dumb question my apologies in advance!:confused:
