    Anon In general, how accurate are mock meets in terms of scoring?

    Hi, does anyone have any wisdom to share about the accuracy of mock meet scoring? We are not new to competing but new to this style of mock meet - ours was judged by a USAG sanctioned judge but we were only given the score on each event, not any kind of insight as to what the deductions are. I'm...

    Anon Level 6/7 Beam Mount Scoring

    Wondering if a more "complicated" beam mount offers anything of value to a score at levels 6/7. The TOPS/HOPES/elite coach at her gym asked to do her beam choreography (yep, that was kid literally has no chance of being moved to that group, nor would we agree to it, so it was not...

    WAG Any changes to L10 scoring/skill value? What about NCAA?

    Now that Chalkbucket is getting fun again ;) I thought I'd pose this question.. I saw the thread about L9 getting a difficulty bonus, and am inferring (though perhaps incorrectly) that there are more changes to the code that will be in place next year. Somebody mentioned that a front tuck on...

    WAG Vault Scoring: Average or best of two?

    My daughter is in Level 4 this year and I had always thought vault was scored as the best of two but her coach now thinks that they have been scored as the average of the two vaults all year. I'm curious if this rule has changed or if it is discretionary/varies by state? Also, if it is the...

    For Parents Scoring

    Question about scoring? At lower levels are gymnasts given higher scores for more advanced skills? Or is it like the Olympics where they say what they will do and if they do that really well they can get a high score. Just confused as I’ve seen some level3 without kip get higher scores than ones...

    WAG Can you help me explain scoring on this XG UB routine?

    I posted this in the Parents forum but I thought it might be better suited here and get more replies. I would appreciate an explanation of how this bars routine was scored, from anyone who knows. This is an Xcel Gold routine, and I definitely see a lot of little deductions -- bent hips, feet...

    For Parents State meet scoring??

    Please help me understand state meet scoring. Say a meet has three sessions of Junior A kids in level 3, are there three state champions with the winner of each session considered a state champion? Or is there one state champion that is determined across all kids in junior A from across all...

    WAG NGA Scoring

    My gym has decided to switch over to the new organization, NGA. Aside from the fact that no one really knows exactly what it's about, I had a question about the scoring.

    For Parents Xcel program scoring for skills

    So this is our first year in excel. We did level one last year but our gym is just strictly going to excel for now. So since you can have more options on your routines is it better to let's say do a ROBH but it not be perfect or do a simpler skill and be perfect? Which would typically give you a...
