My daughter started doing beginner gymnastics skills on her trampoline during covid, like bridges, backbends, cartwheels, handstands and round offs at age 10. She progressed to doing them on the floor. Now, I've enrolled her in gymnastics classes once a week at age 13 (yes, I know thats like grandma age in gymnastics), which started around August 27th. In her class, she is does pretty well on floor, highest skills being back flips and back handspring back flips. On bars she has all level 2 requirements, other than underswing dismount, which hasn't been attempted. Beam is level 2, other than the dismount . Finally, vault is level 2/3. Our gym offers competitive teams levels 1-10, which I'm pretty sure is different from normal competitive gyms. Before making the competitive team, you have to be in pre-team. Before pre-team, you're supposed to go to beginners. My daughter was immediately accepted into pre-team, not having to go to beginners. Now, she really wants to join competitive. Are there any tips for the skills she doesnt have on the other events, or on how to make the team? There arent any tryouts, you're just invited randomly. Apologies if there isn't enough information.
