I was wondering if any gyms had any specific preferences to the styles of leotards and gym gear worn, eg. higher cut legs, no shorts etc. It seems to be the norm at my gym to wear GK (which tend to be higher cut) on the littler kids and preteens, with or without shorts and the older girls wear the GK velvet shorts and just a fitted T-shirt, no leotards worn at all. The coaches don't seem to mind, as long as the gymnast is able to move in it. Watching videos on youtube and reading other post on CB it seems to be uncommon NOT to wear a leo to practice, maybe my gym's a rarity. Do your gyms tend to be more strict on the leo issue to "prepare for competition environment" or as something that should just be worn for gymnastics? or are they more lax? Are the girls comfortable/prefer wearing leotards at your gym? What do your gymnasts wear to practice?

Yeah one time I tried to do a full flip into a pool from ground level and ended up on my back hitting the water. That hurt lol.

@Emma88 or @Oliviablind, would you mind responding here in this thread, either or both of you? We're trying to confirm something.
