    WAG Two pass routines (recently on Inside gym and MyKayla Skinners insta)

    So, I just saw a post with Mykayla Skinner recently stating how she hates two pass in a routine. Basically saying its gymnastics not dance. Inside Gymnastics reposted it more or less agreeing. I was reading a lot of the comments replying to that and it seems like a mixed bag or replies. I tend...

    WAG two pass floor routine question

    A quick question for those in the know. My daughter has an E pass and a D +A pass at the end of routine. Can both passes be in the same corner or does she have to have one in a different corner? Thanks

    Parents Double full on floor

    Looking for some floor help! DD's coach wants her to either do the double full or double back this year, and is saying they are both D's, however I thought a double full is a C and a double back is a D, just wanting some clarification.

    Coaches Spring floor diagram for 4x8 panels (mostly)

    We are opening a new preschool/rec gym soon and we have a secondhand floor to assemble. It is in stacks of boards, some with the spring "cups" and some without. And, the board sizes vary! Most are 4'x8' plywood, with a smaller number that are 4'x6' or 3'x8 and even a couple 4'x7'. All the...

    Parents Level 6 Floor question

    My daughter is in JO Level 6, long story short she struggles with backwards connected passes. It was suggested she just do front passes for her floor which she can do really easily. One of her coaches said there is a .5 deduction for not doing backwards passes and another coach said the rule had...

    WAG Floor routine but gymnast is shy

    Gymnast is shy and doesn’t like to show off routine because she thinks it’s awkward. Should she choose a slow/classical music so it doesn’t draw much attention and isn’t dramatic or should she choose energetic music that she liked but has to work on her showing it off and performing well? Are...

    WAG Floor music

    First year picking floor music and daughter really liked telephone by lady Gaga. We have never watched or listened to her songs so she just likes the beat and rhythm but many adults would probably recognize it. Would it be inappropriate to use that song for her floor music?

    Coaches Hoping I can get some advice on choreography for a floor routine

    I’m hoping this is like “allowed” or whatnot but my dancer/gymnast friend and I choreographed an Xcel Silver floor routine. We just had our first meet & as much as I am proud of them floor did not go as well as i’d hoped. The girls love their routine and so do I, but i’m not sure if the...

    Parents Cut/create floor music

    Hello! My daughter is creating a new routine for Oxford this year and wants to use a particular song- Everlong by The Foo Fighters- but it doesn’t seem to be on any of the gym music sites. Does anyone cut music or know how and can give some guidance? Thank you!

    Gymnasts Upbeat floor music

    hey so I’m looking for a floor music that’s upbeat and sassy. I love showing off my floor routine and making it super dances. I was trying to look for some of the newer floor musics but I find most of them to either feel too immature or they are salsa or super serious. I am 17 so I want...

    WAG Creative floor routines!

    Just a fun thread: what are some unique and creative floor routines that you have enjoyed watching? From Classics I loved Nola Matthews' creepy floor. Some of the Juniors have had interesting choreography too (Ella Kate Parker and Cora Burke's had unique music choices and felt unexpected...

    WAG Xcel silver floor - running entry into aerial?

    For Xcel silver floor, it seems like an aerial can be used to satisfy the flight skill pass. I am wondering whether it matters how the gymnast enters into the aerial. For example, does it matter if they have a running start, a short hurdle, or do a standing aerial? Does the entry into the aerial...
