Try Florida Elite- we are in South Florida so we haven't physically visited there but we compete against them all the time- smaller gym- high quality gymnastics! https://floridaelitegym.com/rec-2/Yes it does! I mainly want her to have fun but I do think stopping at a gym for open gym (maybe even once) wouldn't hurt. We are going to saint Augustine. Is there any you would recommend?
We have always had our DD take 3 weeks off to be with extended family in the summer. When she was going into Level 10 we found a nearby gym where they let her practice with the team on days she could make it. We did maybe a day of open gym in years before that. No problems and she is a successful young Level 10 now. I think family is most important!Hello all!
So after my DDs state meet (which is tomorrow) she has a 3 week vacation.
She is 16 and is very committed and lives/breathes gymnastics. If she is not at gym practicing, she's at home practicing. I think that vacation will be good for her; let her clear her head mentally and just experience life outside gymnastics. This is supposed to be a fun family vacation to see her grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. I asked her if she was excited and she simply said kind of... She's worried she will lose skills, strength, flexibility (you know all the gymnastics things). I told her not to worry and to just enjoy the vacation. I guess what I am asking is, is 3 weeks to long? She is a level 4 (wanting to move up to level 5) so its not like she's doing fulls, yurchenkos, or any of that kind of stuff. She is just really nervous about missing out on class and not progressing how she wants to. I understand because I know how much time she has put into this, and I know how upsetting it would be if she lost skills. Another option I was thinking of was maybe letting her stop by some gyms in Florida and letting her do open gym there. What do you all usually do for vacation?
Thanks for reading if you have made it this far!
