    Parents Season 2023-2024: How is your gymnast doing?

    Just wanted to do an update for all of the parents on the current season. How is your child doing? Have they started competing yet? What is their best event? Any problems or injuries? If they haven't started competing yet... how is preseason coming along?

    Parents When / How long is your season?

    Kind of a spin off of the qualifying for states thread. When does your season start / end, and how many meets do your kids compete in? Do you guys do travel meets? We start in mid-January and finish in March-May depending on level. Levels 3-5 have 5 meets, no state or anything as it’s in the...

    NCAA College Gossip Season begins!

    Only a couple weeks removed and all sorts of activity happening in college gymnastics. I know folks are either to scared to post or shy or just dont care about college gymnastics (although I find that hard to believe on this site), but I thought it would be cool to start a thread marking all...

    Anon Move up season

    The title says it all. While optionals finish their season in our region, compulsory groups are starting to shuffle. My gymnast likes order, predictability, and routine and spring workouts are…none of those things. It turns her into a crazy person. Her beloved workout group is currently 2 levels...

    Parents Texas Gymnastics Season & Moving from Xcel to JO

    I have an 11-year-old daughter who just completed her first season as an Excel platinum. We currently live in Illinois. She did compete JO level 4 and made it to state the year that she did. Last year she was a gold, and this year she competed as a platinum. We currently live in the Chicago...

    Parents Let her retire mid season?

    After a long break from gymnastics, my daughter is competing again this year. It's what she wanted... Or so she thought. After getting a lot of push back about going to practice, we settled on this being her last season. I won't lie, I was sad but we've lived without gymnastics before and I know...

    Parents Abrupt end of her season...

    I got that terrifying phone call yesterday... "You need to come, quick". I got there within seconds and was riding in an ambulance with her moments after. It was pretty much a freak accident, falling arm first (like diving) from the high bar. Not doing upgrades, not doing anything out of the...

    WAG Most number of 10s in a season

    Anon Upgrades during meet season?

    Curious - does your gym have the girls work upgrades during meet season? Our gym doesn't but I've seen quite a few that do.

    Parents Advice for how to handle shifting teams now that the meet season is over?

    Hi all! We're wrapping up our first competitive season and looking for wisdom on how to handle the upcoming team shuffles.

    NCAA Quarter season done, kinda, what do you think?

    With so many delays/cancellations due to covid, not everyone is at the same point but most teams have completed 3-4 meets. I feel like I have watched a pretty wide swath of teams with multiple meets recorded, streamed and attended every weekend in our household. My observations so far...

    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. She was extremely proud when she worked out if she had a beam similar to last year she would have been...
