Forgot to add that I prefer RG for the girls usu grow up to be tall and slender but my girl's physique seems cut out for AG... She is rather short but quite strong.

Hi.

You can try AG first.
If you try RG first, it may be difficult to switch to AG later on.
However, gymnasts from AG switching to RG have great advantages.

Cheers!

Thanks Gymkraft!

At what point do you switch to RG? :) I heard from some parents that most gym schools specialise in AG or RG exclusively and not both... So I'm concerned that my gal will just be in the AG track solely :scratchhead:

Hi

Depend on your child.
You cannot do both competitively at the same time. They are very different, like TKD and WuShu.
Why are you concern about that? We cant have everything.
So choose one, and if your child want to switch, up to him/her.

Cheers!

Hi Gymkraft,

I'm thinking of starting gal on AG since you rightly mentioned that AG provides the foundation. My only concern is that if I enrol her in an AG school, there's a possibility of her doing AG all the way since the school I'm interested offers AG only (RG schools are very limited anyway if I'm not wrong).

Since the AG school doesn't offer RG, the instructor might train her in AG all the way. Therefore if I'm really interested to put her in RG, at which point in time should I switch to a RG school? Eg, 6 mth ? 1 yr? Etc

Sorry I'm a novice at this :)

And I have this impression that once I let my gal join the AG school, she would be there all the way trained in AG.

Would the instruction be so 'noble' to tell me to switch to RG?

Sorry, my guess, but there is a minute possibility. Hehe

Hi.

I can understand your dilemma, but your direction is a bit skewed.
It's like, you want your child to do soccer, but put him/her in a basketball school, which you are interested in, instead.
If you really want your child to do RG, go for it right from the start.

Choose AG if you do not have any idea which to go first.
If you child is happy in AG, why switch?
Hope I resolve your dilemma.

Cheers!

I believe not many (or none at all) private gymnastics clubs provide trampoline training. It is a very small market and most clubs do it to supplement the AG training.

Maybe you want to check out a trampoline park called Amped Trampoline Park at Tanjong Katong. Maybe they offer some classes there. (I am in no way affiliated to them)

Cheers!
