I have noticed some gyms will compete girls as level 10s but will compete “easier” skills that may still earn a 10.0 sv or slightly below. (I realize no lvl 10 skills are easy but there is a wide range). You will see easier, cleaner routines out score more difficult ones that have more errors. So I am curious what is more beneficial when it comes to colleges recruiting. If a gymnast is a freshmen and theoretically has 2 maybe 3 seasons to really be recruited is it better to compete harder skills and gain experience and consistency over those years or is it better to water it down a bit to get high scores? Also, what skills would you say keep the gymnasts in the running,? Are there specific skills colleges are looking for?
