    WAG NSW - National and State Stream

    Hi all! Apologies as I know this is unlikely to get much traction here but I can no longer find the Australia forum. It seems that GymNSW has added a National and State stream option. Just curious if anyone knows much about it? Is it a formal thing where you have to be registered as a State or...

    Anon Possibly Unpopular Question: Former National Team Members Competing in Nastia?

    There are often questions on this forum about "is it fair for former elites to compete L10?" or "Is it fair for someone training tops to compete L4?" or "Is it fair for someone with L7 skills to compete L5?" etc. etc. and my opinion to all of these is a simple "yes." I mean, we all know that...

    UK gym mum here. I know this is a real long shot but just wondering if anyone has vids of their kids who did North west National 5? Impossible to find on YouTube. My little lady will be doing this in May in place of the regional grades in January. Would love to see a good example to show her! Thanks

    Parents National grade 5

    Hi all. First time posting. My daughter who is currently 7, 8 on July has been asked to do national grade 5 next may. I'm delighted as she had done grade 6 club grade in January and thought she was sticking to regional. My question is is the national grade 5 actually recognised? Is it more of a...

    NCAA First-ever National TV NCAA Meet This Sunday Florida vs Alabama (2PM CST On ABC)

    3pm EST ABC. NCAA gymnastics is getting much more coverage this year. Should be a good meet. I expect Bama to be much more composed than they showed last week at Oklahoma.

    WAG New National Team Coordinator

    I was surprised to discover that the Russians and Americans had the same total team start value, 68.8. Of course that's counting the 1.5 Yurchenko for Simone. So we totally lost this on execution. I think the Americans have been increasingly getting lax in terms of execution. I was never a fan...

    WAG JO National Championships proposal.

    Has anyone else had a chance to read this yet? JO National Proposal. I can't decide if I am completely in favor yet, but I like a lot of the ideas presented, and some really good arguments are made. I'm looking forward to the discussion on this one! I think an overhaul would be nice.

    Parents National Camp

    I have a couple questions regarding Tops A camp. I heard the girls only can use their phones at certain times. Is that true? Are the coaches on site or at a hotel? How many girls are in a cabin? If teammates all made camp do they put them in the same cabin or separate them? Do they...
