    We were not told in advance what to expect. It was run very much like a practice. It was supposed to last 3 hours but only lasted 2. The did backbends, splits (all 3), back walkovers, cartwheels, and round offs on the floor. On beam they did split jumps, turns, cartwheels, and handstand dismounts. For vault they just timed them running, they did not actually get to vault. Bars was pullover, casting, the split thing (IDK what it is called. It was very basic. It turns out she was the youngets one. Personally, I think her strength skills (climbing rope, pull ups) were lacking at tryouts. If the girls were not comfortable doing a skill they were not forced to do it. Overall it was a nice experience. Please keep in mind that this was for XCEL so JO may be different. My gym is one of the top gyms in region 5 and is very competitive so that may effect what they look for too.
