My older dd is a new L4, and she is working on the ROBHS. She's needing a pretty heavy spot at this point, but she looks like she's kind of getting the idea. She was very afraid to even try it with a spot before she started L4, so I am glad she's at least jumping and trying it with the spot. She practices 14 hrs a week. How long does it typically take to get this skill? It just looks so hard, I can't imagine her ever doing it on her own! I think this is because my gymnastics skills end at a roundoff, so I don't have any idea what it takes to do it. Thanks for any thoughts, I know all kids are different, (one of her new L4 teammates got it the first week!) but I'd love a general idea!
