Just three quick questions:

1) A LONG time ago we were talking about SILVAS and someone
meantioned that they say her back in her pre-european junior
champ days in a competition in Japan. Does ANYONE have this on
video? I'd love to see it since it was 'before' she was a big

2) Does anyone have the address for Eurosport? I was given one
and I wrote to it and I never recieved an answer (how rude!).
I haven't seen a URL or email address, but if anyone has
that I'd love it, too.

3) Does RSG have a set rotation? If so, what is it?

Thanks, as always.


(Insert usual warnings about here).

Recreational gymnastics should be the "feeder" system for comp programs. The
prob in many clubs has as much to doo with the facility as anything else.
 With limited equipment and floor space, it's real hard to train because
everyone wants the prime time.  The rec program drives the $$--it should
integrate with local daycares to utilize space during daytime hours and
reduce the traffic flow as much as possible for school age kids in the
evenings.  But competition, especially the ability to take them all the way
to elite levels in at least 3 areas (girls artistic, rhythmic and boys) is
the showcase.

The ideal club would be large enough to have several floors--a rec floor, a
rhythmics floor with high enough ceilings to hold competitions--min 28' (if
you can find a quality coach and have other teams with which to compete) and
a large rec floor that can handle more than one class at the same time  (our
club has all of these).  What we are missing is a separate, longer/narrow
area for acro team, with perhaps an area for a rock climbing wall, which adds
diversity to the club, spreading its costs and revenues over a wider base.
 It would have an elevated viewing deck with concessions and proshop area.

Clubs have difficulty with the diversity of programs usually due to
size/equipment limitations.  We put a community coalition together to raise
the $$ for the facility. We have our growing pains, but basically it

Subject: Coaching positions available

Anyone who lives in the Detroit area (Northville) or is willing to move and
is looking for a coaching job?  We are a new club (3 months old) that is
growing so quickly that we cannot keep up with coaches.  We have all levels
through competitive team, and a growing boys program. The gym is located in a
beautiful location and is newly renovated, with in-ground pits and tumble
tramp.  If you would like more information, please contact me at:

Subject: Thanks...

Since I received so many E-Mails regarding Olympic Rotation, I
figured it would be easier to thank everyone together.  I appreciate
all the responses.

Subject: Introduction

I've been on and off this group for about a year now, depending on whether or
not my modem chose to malfunction, but never got around to introducing
myself, so here goes.
My name is Alexis and I live in the suburbs of Philadelphia.  I'm a
seventeen year old high school senior, going through the torture of applying
to college (no, I don't know where I'm going yet) and, though I was never a
gymnast, I've been a huge fan of the sport for some years now.  The first
gymnastics meet I actually remember watching was the American Cup where Kim
Z. and Lance Ringnald won (I'm pretty sure it was '90).  I've been hooked
ever since!  My favorite gymnasts (currently) are Kerri Strug, Lilia
Podkopayeva, Ivan Ivankov, and Mo Huilan.
I've really been enjoying listening to all the opinions of the people in this
group and am really glad to have found it.  I hope you guys didn't find this
too boring to read!

Subject: Phys-ed project

I am wondering if anyone has any ideas as to what I could do my OAC
Kinesology independent project on.  Last year I did Eating Disasters in the
Sport of Gymnastics, so I can't do that again - I have the same teacher.
Anyways, I would like to do something about gymnastics becasue I have a lot
of knowledge on it, plus, my teacher doesn't know that much about it.  Any
ideas?  You can e-mail me privately, that way everyone isn't stuck with the
mail.  Thanks for your help, just one request, I should tell my teacher my
topic on Monday, so any replies this weekend would be greatly appreciated.
