I have been doing gymnastics for three years. I do it every Monday and Wednesday after school. I do vaults, balance beam and the uneven bars. The best is vaulting because I do handsprings.

What's your game? Is it soccer, roller hockey, basketball or something else? This kid tells us about her favorite after school sport.

I have been doing gymnastics for 3 years and it is my favorite sport. I do it every Monday and Wednesday after school. I do vaults, balance beam and the uneven bars. The best is vaulting because I do handsprings. I start off by running and getting as much speed as I can. Then I put my hands on the vault and do a flip in the air. I land on my feet almost every time. After one hour of gymnastics, I usually have some water and a snack. But not too much because my coach says if I eat too much I will get sick. At the end of the class, me and all my friends from gymnastics jump into a big pit of foam.

Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.

Well I'm in 6th grade this year and next year in seventh grade I'm going to try out for cheerleading... The problem is I cant do a cartwheel or any of that! So I have to cram all of this stuff into just one year, all help is appreciated.
