My 6.5yo started a rec class at the beginning of the fall, and she recently got invited to the Xcel bronze team. Two separate coaches told me over the year that she has a lot of natural talent, which surprised me because she is at the 99.6th percentile for height. She’s 52 inches tall at 6.5 years and towers over everyone else in her kindergarten class. I don’t have a background in gymnastics, so my question is: how much truth is there in the idea that gymnastics is better suited for shorter girls. Is there a point at which her height will hold her back? I have no idea how long we will be on this gymnastics journey, and I don’t really care how well she competes as long as she is happy and having fun. I’m just curious if this is going to be a hugely uphill battle for her, given her height. Thanks!
