    For Parents Training hours during school time.

    How do you feel about elementary aged kids missing school for practice? My daughter will be training level 4 next year and one of her scheduled gym practices is a school day 12-4. I hate this. I expressed concern to competitive manger and they are not willing to change time, not willing to let...

    WAG Middle School Gymnastics

    I'm from Australia and am curious about the system for middle school gymnastics. What are the requirements and what levels are they similar to? Is it true that they use Xcel requirements? If anyone knows, that would be great!

    WAG Middle school gymnastics

    In our gym we have a middle school program, I’m planning to be in it, but I’m sure if I’ll progress. The middle girls train the same time as us. I’m not trying to be rude are anything but the middle school girls have a lower skill level than me. A lot of the gymnasts have never done gymnastics...

    Anon Home School Group vs Evening Groups

    For those that have both a home school (HS) group at their gym and an evening group (EG) do you feel that your gym favors the "home school" kids? I have started to feel some frustration over the years because the HS kids seem to get more advantages and consideration on things. The Head...

    WAG Advice for gymnastics and school

    There are multiple threads on this already, but I wanted to put the question out here. I'm having trouble with grades (around a C) in my math class. It is an advanced class for my grade level and the only class I am struggling with. My parents have told me if my grades don't pick up, I will...

    OT Gymnastics College recruiting and High School Cheer

    Should my daughter downplay Varsity High School cheerleading when she posts to he social media for gymnastics recruiting? Would college gym coaches percieve her as not a serious recruit if she does cheer also. She is good at both but I am wondering if we really do need to keep these worlds...

    For Parents School Performance

    I just thought that I would share something that is quite comical about my DD’s and their grades they received in PE this past semester. They each got B’s in PE for the second quarter in a row. The specific area that they both received this in was the ability to maintain healthy levels of...

    For Parents Anyone heard of online school Edgenuity?

    Our school district will be offering this online option to students who continue distance learning next semester: It is a 6-12 curriculum, NCAA compliant. I'm wondering if anyone knows of it and if it is a rigorous academic educational option?

    For Parents Anyone gone back to school in person yet?

    My kids start back 4 days a week in person in two weeks and have to wear masks all day, obviously. The school made parents commit to all virtual or a hybrid of in-person/virtual last week and only 40% wanted the hybrid option, so they are actually letting our kids go 4 days since there is enough...

    Recommendations for supplementing school

    Hi there, my DDs highschool (in California) just decided to go fully online. As they are not experts in this, they are allowing kids to take classes through other institutions. As so many here have done online classes, programs, and homeschool alternatives, I thought there might be some good...

    For Parents Anybody trying gym school?

    Our gym posted this as something for the gymnasts to do, did anyone else hear about it or is doing it? Not sure if it is legit or not, hoping that someone on chalkbucket could vouch for it.

    WAG High School Gymnastics

    Anyone out there who has a high school team gymnast? My DD is considering trying out for her HS team next year. They use a different type of classification for skills (superior; high superior, etc.) and neither my daughter or I can't find any "cheat sheets" on what it all means. Just when I...

    OT College/Post High School Plans

    I'm a senior this year, and I was wondering if anyone else/ your DD/DS is going through the college process as well! I know there's not a whole lot of gymnasts on here, but maybe someone can offer some words of wisdom in these stressful application crunch times! I've applied early action to 1...
