    Parents First meet this season!

    Hey all let's chat! Assuming most of your gymnasts have competed by now, how did your first (and second) meets go? Ill start! DD1 had an amazing meet, some beam issues but overall very good.

It was an in house meet, and...

    Parents DD lost her BHS right before first meet

    My daughter's first ever Level 3 meet is this Saturday. She lost her BHS after a bad landing at practice a couple of weeks ago and has not gotten it back. She said she is now scared to do it, even though she knows she can. She does it with help during practice but is she allowed to not try it at...

    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...

    Parents Poor first meet scores

    My newly turned five year old had her first level 2 meet. She came in next to last with a all around score of 25-26ish(can’t recall the exact score). She looked to be one of the youngest at the meet, if not the youngest. She was definitely the smallest kid competing in her level. Most kids in...

    MAG First meet

    Wow, there is so much to learn- so many differences between boys' and girls' gymnastics! DS started off in a 1 hour rec class in March and then joined the team over the summer. The way his gym is set up the boys practice way in the back and I haven't seen him do any gymnastics. My husband and I...

    Parents First meet in the bag!

    Success! A wonderful first meet experience and looking forward to this next one. I was so nervous but now that we have a baseline it feels easier to help her set personal goals and prepare. Any other newbies here? Thanks for all your help!

    Parents How to prepare 5 year old for first meet

    Hi! My daughter is four years old and training level 2. She turns five shortly before her first competition. I know she will be competing against kids who are older and better than her.

    Parents More then scared for her first meet?

    So recently I asked my DD if she was excited about her first meet (Coming up in December) this is her first year not just doing team but doing gymnastics in general. If you haven't seen my thread about how her coach is making her stop doing her harder skills although he said form had nothing to...

    Parents VERY first meet tomorrow! Nerves and a question

    My 6-year-old has her very first meet tomorrow! It feels like it's been forever working up to this, since she started rec Kinder class at 4. So crazy to compare, since my 5-year-old DD starts her second season of t-ball, and after 2 weeks of practice they will already be playing games! With how...

    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...
