    Parents High School gymnastics requirements

    Good morning everyone. Does anyone knows for Illinois, what does it take to be accepted in the high school gymnastics team? What level should the gymnast be? When are usually the tryouts and are these information posted online or we have to ask the school beforehand? Thank you in advance.

    WAG USAIGC Silver Skill Requirements?

    I am a 14 year old gymnast in a team unique to my state with very few requirements to be on the team. I am one of the older ones on the team but was thinking about moving to our USAIGC program since I am training higher level skills than most of my teammates and IGC would be the next step. For...

    WAG What are the Xcel Platinum Bars Requirements???

    So last season I competed Gold for a second time, and I'm pretty hopeful that I will be able to go to Platinum this year. I'm pretty close to having all my skills, most of my newer skills that I got for Platinum do need to be cleaned up a little, but I can do them pretty decently, I think. I...

    Anon Sports Bra Requirement

    Our gym requires all gymnasts ages 9 and up to wear a sports bra for practice and competition. My daughter recently turned 9 and I’m hesitant to force this on her as she has sensory issues to begin with and in no way needs a sports bra. Do your gyms require sports bras? If so, at what age...
