    WAG Gymnast/Coach ratio for L3-6

    What is gymnast/coach ratio in your gyms for levels 3-6? At our gym there are 18 to 25 gymnasts for 2 coaches split into two groups usually. One coach is coaching vault/bars and the other beam/floor. Is there any official requirements to gymnast/coach ratio?

    WAG Does USAG place a limit on the coach:gymnast ratio?

    Our gym will not let girls do make ups for missed practices, saying that USAG limits the ratio to 1:8, so they cannot go over that to accommodate a kid doing a make up. Is there truth to that?

    For Parents Coach/gymnast ratio

    Hello! Newly joined! A quick background. We have a 7-year-old DD who has been on a fast-track team for the last year and a half. She will compete L3 this fall and L4 in the winter/spring. She also tested for TOPS this summer. Skill-wise, she has blossomed over the last 6 months, but it seems...

    WAG Coach to gymnast ratio

    What is a reasonable/customary ratio for a Level 8/uptraining 9 bar rotation? It seems our (great) bar coach is stretched beyond capacity with this group of girls, and DD can go through an entire bar rotation without ever being spotted on needed skills or receiving any coaching feedback. How...

    MAG ratio of girls program to boys program

    Spin off from another thread. I am wondering what is the "normal" ratio of number of girls team (ish - could include team track, TOPS, etc) to boys team members around the country. I know that in any successful gym the recreational program will be the largest and the place a gym makes the...

    I'm sure this question has been raised a time or two. But I couldn't find anything in my quick search. What is a good ratio? If you have a team of 36 girls, how many coaches would be needed to maximize the potential and train the girls? Thanks for any input. I'm just curious. If topic...

    WAG Coach/Gymnast Ratio

    Just because I'm curious...what's the standard coach to gymnast ratio by level? Does USAG have any guidelines for it, or is it whatever the coach can handle?

    For Coaches gymnasts to coach ratio per session

    Trying to figure out funding to send coaches to a "fly away" meet. The meet might combine sessions, which would put around 11 girls for one coach. Do you think this is too many?

    For Parents Gymnast/Coach Ratio

    My daughter is moving to level 3 and it looks like there will be a lot of girls. I'm just wondering what the typical coach to gymnast ratio is. It's looking like we may have around 9:1.

    WAG Team to rec ratio

    I was Googling another topic when I came upon WOGA's page. The page stated that they have 3000 gymnast with 200 competing. That's just 1 out of 15 kids do well enough in gymnastics to compete. You think this is average? Or it's just cause it's WOGA? I think our gym is more 1:4... Or even 1:5...

    WAG Power to weight ratio and/or weight to strength ratio

    I often wondered when gymnasts reach their peak gymnastically and/or at what age can one determine the maximum potential of a gymnast. Studies have shown that the physical peak for most humans are 23-35 (average I got from various studies). Men peak a little later then women. This peak...

    WAG Strength to Weight Ratio

    I have a question for coaches about strenth to weight ratio and body type. My DD is 8 y.o. (will turn 9 in Dec.), weighs about 70 lbs. I am not positive about her height. At her check up last year she was 4'1. I think she has probably grown another inch, at least. Anyway, she has very, very...
