Preteam

Yesterday {l} had the tryout of her life. . . you know, since it was the FIRST tryout of her life. She was asked to tryout for gymnastics pre-team. Basically there are two different routes in gymnastics - recreational or competitive. Both girls started recreational gymnastics last year. You have to be invited to join the competitive team. On Monday night, while going to judo, the head gymnastics coach saw {l} and asked Tug if she could come to gymnastics on Tuesday for the tryout. I took her last night and that coach (a different coach) said it was a tryout that would be Tuesday and Thursday night. At the end of class she said the Thursday tryout wasn't needed and that {l} would be joining pre-team (so long as I am willing to pay the additional $25/month). She is on the bottom rung of the competitive team (she is certainly the oldest in her class, most girls looked to be between 6-7 and there was even a 5 year old, {l} is 9). If she is able to improve and advance she will eventually be competing. YAY {l}!!
