Hi... total newbie question. My daughter is ready for compete her first season as Xcel bronze. Our gym hasn't given us much guidance on what to expect at competitions. In regards to the judges scoring, is it correct to assume the girls are scored on their form for their routines and for meeting the required amount of skills and aren't given bonus points for doing harder skills like we are seeing on TV?

Yes, that is correct. They just receive deductions from their start value. There are no bonus points and I believe that they can receive deductions for skills that are not allowed at each Xcel level. For example, it looks like B skills and higher are not allowed in bronze.

Hope that your daughter has a fun first meet!
