    Parents Asked to leave Xcel bronze?

My daughter was put on xcel bronze in May and was just asked to leave this week, not for behavior, not for lack of working hard but because they believe she will be lacking the skills needed to compete all 4 events by January. (She can't really do...

    Parents Xcel bronze floor routine

    Ok I was reading the floor routine requirements and it says 2 tumbling passes, 1 that has 2 connecting skills and the other a single...
