    WAG Are our roundoff back handspring entries being scored?

    As a gymnast I actually have no idea; as A skills, do they count toward the number of A skills. Because once you start to optionals you start counting your A skills and B skills, etc, so do they count? And are they scored and deducted? Curious and hoping I have enough A skills!

    Parents Average time to get ROBHS

    Is there an average time to get a roundoff backhand spring independently without a spot? My daughter now only needs a very tiny bit of a spot, cheering her on to get it soon. But I’m just curious what is typical?

    Hi. Pretty recently my daughter has started struggling to do her ROBHS in her floor routine for Level 3. She's been doing it for months- and has even done a ROBHSBHS multiple times. I think it is mostly nerves. What would the deduction be for just doing a round off in the floor routine? They...

    My daughter is a new level 3 (age 7) and is too scared to do a ROBHS without a coach next to her. What can she do to get over her fear? There are still several girls that can't do them either. Drills? More spotting? Upper body workout for strength?

    WAG Connecting ROBHS

    I have a round-off and a standing BHS. I used to be able to connect them, but one time when I tried to connect it I fell and now I can't seem to bring myself to do it again. Does anyone know any drills to help me connect it again? (I need this skill if I want to move up to xcel gold next season)
