I’m trying to gain a better understanding of the Level 7 bar routine:
First, if DD doesn’t quite make her cast to handstand at first on low bar, but then she makes it on the high bar, does that still count?
Second, she will probably do two giants on high bar (clear hip to 45 on low). I’ve...
My DD just got officially moved up to Xcel Platinum. She has all her skills, but is still working on connecting her bar routine. Her routine is kip cast free hip kip squat on hb kip cast layout flyaway. She can connect the high bar fine, and her kip squat on is good, but she is still struggling...
What would be the start value of this level 9 bar routine?
Kip squat on, jump to the high bar, kip cast to handstand, 1/2 pirouette to shootover, kip squat on, jump to the highbar, kip cast handstand, giant, giant, double back dismount.
If it's not a 10.0 start value what is missing?
I'm coming from a small gym where we have never competed in DP before (I'm petitioning in) so it's been hard to understand all of the rules and requirements perfectly. Currently my bar routine is Kip, handstand, pak salto, kip, handstand 1/2 pirouette, kip, jump to high, kip, handstand, giant...
What would the SV be on level 9 for this bar routine:
Kip cast handstand pirouette
Kip cast handstand to Chinese sit up (toe shoot??)
Kip cast handstand
Free hip handstand
Double back dismount
They are taking pak out temporarily for more work/clean up.
I recently watched a video of my cousin's bar routine. It appears to be around level 6 level but it was the strangest routine I have ever seen! For Level 6 in our region, I see most girls do the level 5 first half on the low bar, and Kip-Flyaway on the high bar, sometimes with cast handstands...
Hi, my daughter is working towards grade 6, the only thing that is worrying her is that she cannot get her upward circle in her bar routine. I know nothing about gymnastics, but my question is, can she pass a grade if she cannot get her upward circle?
There are a couple current xcel gold gymnasts who I want to move to platinum for next season. One of my girls is super nervous about moving up because she doesn't feel prepared on bars. I'm looking to find some feasible routine ideas for her. On bars, she currently competes...
My DD is feeling uncomfortable with parts of her routine. She did some research and wants to change it to kip, front hip circle, cast, cast, dismount. Would that work? Her other possibilities would be doing two front hip circles or a single back hip circle, but she doesn’t like back hip circles...
Quick question! I have a gymnasts who is learning to do jaeger. She wants to add it in her bar routine, but she doesn't have a bail or pak and she's too tall to do a giant 1/2 / blind facing the low bar. Are there any other relatively easy or smart ways to continue the routine after the jaeger...
Can someone tell me what bar skills are required for an optional routine at an elite qualifier meet?
If you could also include the letter/score with the actual skill name that would be so helpful. Right now she has a stalder, toe on, Maloney, pirouette & is working on a pac ( sorry hope I...
My daughter is competing her first year xcel silver at age 9. She “got” her kip this summer and has competed 2 times with it. The first time scoring a 9.3 and the second only a 8.7. She has a meet tomorrow and is questioning her kip. Would it be better to do it even though her arms aren’t...
I don't understand all the symbols and codes...but this is what DD has and I am not sure if it is enough:
spring board to high board
kip to handstand
hopefully a tkatchev (inconsistent with it)
Pirouette to shootover to handstand
Chinese situp to kip/handstand
double layout dismount...
Can someone who is more experienced please confirm if the following level 6 bar routine fulfills all the requirements?
Kip - squat on - jump to high high bar- kip- cast to 45 degrees- giant - flyaway
I'm a Sr. 9 in aga which is the equivalent to like level 6-10 in usag. It's complicated. I'll include all my requirements in every routine so if you would like to suggest a routine you can.
Routine 1: LB cut catch, squat on, straddle back, kip, cast handstand, kip, clearhip, squat on, HB cut...
