    Coaches Bar Dismount help

    Please share positive experiences of helping a gymnast get over the fear of pulling in on a tuck double back. She had a nice one, but got injured after "pulling in." I did not see the funky dismount to know what went wrong, but it was an isolated bad one. She had no history of doing this in the...

    WAG Xcel Diamond - Bar Dismount

    Is a B dismount (layout 1/2 twist, double, etc) required? I find this odd as a B is typically Level 9? My daughter competed Level 8 last season with a layout dismount, switched to Diamond and noticed that most of the requirements overall are more in line with Level 7/8 skills with the...

    WAG bar dismount value

    does anyone know what the current skill value of a Pechstein is on bars? It's basically a front giant with 1.5 twist dismount. Also what is the current value of a double pike dismount on bars?

    WAG Another Level 6 Bar Dismount Question

    Last night DD and I were talking on the way home from the gym and she mentioned an old teammate wasn't doing a fly away dismount (level 6) on bars but something else that "met" the dismount requirements. Is this possible? I quickly looked it up on-line and the requirements are "salto"...

    WAG Toe one front bar dismount

    Hello everyone I have been working on toe on front dismounts for a few months now and it is pretty good but I am just stuck. Right before I land on the ground I open up and land feet first then onto my butt. This happens every time. Whenever I do it into the pit it's fine but then I go onto a...

    WAG Level 5, 6 7 bar dismount

    So after looking at the level 5 bar routine and reading the requirements for level 6 and 7, what dismount would most L6s do? L5 does a flyaway, L6 requires only a min of an A dismount so from my understanding would be you would not have to do the flyaway and then L7 says the dismount with a...

    WAG L7 Scoring - Lunge Landing and Bar Dismount

    In my effort to learn this new L7 world, I am curious about a couple items that impact scoring. On floor - if you land a tumbling pass and then immediately go to a lunge position, is that considered a step? DD says it's not, and it may just be something for optionals. Second, one of the other...

    Level 4 bar dismount

    Are there any new drills or a different way I can teach the level 4 bar dismount. I am dealing with the girls piking around the bar and shooting their toes down to the ground for the under swing. I have them work on double back hip circles and back hip circle stop half way but once they go on...

    Help with Level 5 bar dismount

    My DD is struggling with her bar dismount. She says she can't turn fast enough. She starts to take her hand off the bar to turn and just can't complete the turn. Any advice on what she needs to do differently or what she can work on? Also does it matter which direction she turns?
