Hi, my 12 year old dd will be competing her first level 9 meet in a few weeks. She has strong skills, and is very much of a perfectionist. She works every night after practice for example on perfecting her leaps, points, split jumps at home so that she doesn't receive any deduction on those. This trait helped her alot in level 8, and she did very well as a result. However, now in level 9 she isnt competing a very competitive routine on bars or floor ie. toe hecht but no release yet and floor she has her 1.5 full but is not yet connecting to front tuck. Her beam is beautiful, and she has all her skills well polished and her vault is a tsuk pike. She is worried that her nice form and attention to detail wont help her as much in level 9, since she doesnt have all bonuses and release. I am wondering if she could still score well and how much her clean lines and detail will help her scores in level 9.
