Nah, I think you're good. The annoying cheering that some are describing is truly over the top. As in SNL Skit level of bonkers. It's when the cheering becomes way more than the ambient background noise of a meet. I've encountered it twice in 8 years of meets.We cheer for the whole team too! Now I’m wondering if people find it rude and disruptive, when we thought we were being supportive and celebrating the gymnasts’ hard work
Now I'm wondering when there's going to be an SNL skit about gymnastics meets, especially with some of the fan shenanigans we see at the big college meets now (body paint, fans dancing along with floor routines, etc.). That would be really fun!Nah, I think you're good. The annoying cheering that some are describing is truly over the top. As in SNL Skit level of bonkers.

The Auburn Gymnasties! So much content there....Now I'm wondering when there's going to be an SNL skit about gymnastics meets, especially with some of the fan shenanigans we see at the big college meets now (body paint, fans dancing along with floor routines, etc.). That would be really fun!
I meant this kind of thing:Been wearing hoodies with my baby on it since level 3. If it’s obnoxious to some lol oh well.
personally, I still don't see a problem with it. They are showing their pride in their gymnasts. It could be a regional thing or it could be a parent who took it from another child's sport (don't they do this a lot in cheer and dance?)I meant this kind of thing:

Larger than life. When a whole family had those on at a meet a lot of jaws dropped in the stands.
this is exactly what happens in college. think it's great that it is making its way down to developmentalAnother "meet ettiquette" thing for gymnasts:
The other day I was timing beam for the Xcel Bronze session. There was a pretty large team of 5-7 year olds, all with the same short routine. Through EVERY routine, the girls were nonstop chanting "Go Suzie, you got it Suzie, c'mon Suzie..." over and over again through the entire routine. It was hilarious! (though probably a bit disruptive to the other teams.) I think their coach was trying to encourage them to cheer for each other... but you know how it is with 6 year olds.
Same with my DD's team, cheers sprinkled throughout. My favorite are the hugs and high fives they give each other at the end of the routines, though!One of my favorite things is replaying the recordings of my DD's routines and hearing her teammates cheering for her. They are all older (9-14), so not as obnoxious as 6-7 year olds would be and I don't even really notice when I'm focused on the meet there in person. It's a nice level of cheering with a few "you got this" before a big skills and a lot of "yeah!" and "yay!" after the skill is completed successfully.
Oh no! That's definitely inconsiderate for a fellow gym parent to do! How would she have felt if that was her kid on beam?I saw one mom bragging about how once her daughter’s score was posted, she screamed so loud she startled a girl on beam and she nearly fell off. That’s certainly not respectful and you should not be bragging about that kind of disruptive behavior.
In tri and quad meets, all teams are going at the same time and the crowd is cheering the whole time. Does your gym not do pressure sets for beam where spectators are being loud and distracting? Ask you gymnasts whether they even notice the parents cheering when they are in the zone. Most will tell you - no.I think it’s also important to remember that at college meets, when teammates are cheering loudly, often the only person competing is the one they are cheering. At a maximum only two are competing at a time. This is not the case in JO meets.
