Re: Talk to me about competitive gymnastics
Reading the other responses, I just want to add that yes, it's true about the increase in commitment (both hours and fees) from year to year, but I wouldn't let that stop me from trying pre-team this year. You never know...your daughter may decide on her own in a couple of years that she doesn't want to continue. It doesn't mean the training she has put in was a waste. My daughter "retired" from gymnastics at 14 years old and is incredibly strong and could have picked up nearly any sport she wanted to. She opted for cross country and was the only freshman female to make the varsity team in high school, attributed to her gymnastics training.
A real woman always has a clean house, an empty laundry basket, smells good, is well made-up, slim, healthy, eloquent, and perfectly well behaved...I suspect I am a man.
