    Hi I’m eleven and I’m about to start gymnastics. I did it when I was 4-7 but I had to quit because of dance. I taught my self some stuff like walkovers, limbers and a front handspring but I don’t know anything about bar vault. I completely forgot everything I learnt when I was little on them and I’m scared I’m gonna be put with the little kids because I’m bad at bar and vault.
    Is there anything I can do to practise bar and vault that I can do at home ??

  • Kaitlyn Komnenus June 10, 2017, 4:14 am

    Is it a little weird that I’m 13 and could never afford gymnastics practice or lessons but i want to be a gymnast and I’m starting at level 1? Cause i would love to be a gymnast. But I’m worried I’ll be made fun of.
