I'm going to print enough pages to make a book that has a page for every meet of the year. Then I'm adding a nice cover, maybe with a...

    Parents 1st Meet in the books

    Well we competed our first official Level 6 meet and despite some issues it went really well. The hotel we stayed at wasnt the best the beds were really uncomfortable so no one got any sleep. DD has been fighting off a cold so without sleep she was miserable in the morning for the 9am warm up...

    Hopefully a coach who has seen this book can help me..... My daughter wants to know what are ABCD etc. skills.

    MAG Male gymnast books

    Anyone know of any?? My 8 year old read Lance Ringnald’s biography and desperately wants something similar for a road trip this weekend but I’m coming up blank. Any reading level is fine but his requirements are it must be non-fiction and must be a MALE gymnast.

    MAG First Nationals in the books!

    My son finished his first nationals (12yo lev el 8/ JE) and going into it he wanted to be vault champ but he wasn't ready to throw his kas lay which he would have had to throw and land well because of the necessary difficulty to place among these incredible gymnasts. He did place 16th on pommel...

    MAG Mock Meet as a new optional in the books!

    DS had his mock meet for level 8 today and I think it went well. His warm up tumbling on floor looked really good but when he did the routine he got winded and lost his concentration on the whip half barani ( a pass he's been struggling with) and fell and then fell on the double full right after...

    WAG Sophia State Meet in the books

    I would have never thought when Sophia needed surgery last October that she would have any season at all. To have her compete, qualify to Nastia Cup, score her first 10 and just last weekend win three events at her State Meet has been such a blessing. Injuries are HARD but WOW the character is...

    First Meet in the Books

    Mobility meet for DD was yesterday. She did great! She was disappointed in her trampoline score, BUT I keep trying to tell her a week and a half ago she still was missing a skill so she should see it as a win and know that she has 5 months to polish it. She did get a mobility score on...
