My daughter is a prep 3 gymnast in tn, she has always had a fear of jumping to the high bar. She worked through with stacking mats and was doing very well, she won gold in state meet at the end of last year on bars in her age division. She has no problems with a smaller bar setting, great kip, cast, no kip squat on because of her fear, but she can jump to the high bar and do her lay out fly away. Bigger Bar Big Problem. She can jump to the bigger bar set if she stacks mats and then pulls them away one by one, and she remains jumping to the big set for weeks at a time, but then she get the fear back and we are back at stacking mats agian. This week the coaches told her no more stacking mats and if she couldn't jump and catch the bar at the end of the day she can not compete. I don't know what to do? Is stacking mats not a good idea? Should I just encourage her to give up competative gymnastics and just do recreational classes? The gym wants the all the girls to jump to one bar setting and even though she is great on the smaller bar set, she is very afraid of the bigger setting. help.
