Nice! I heard girls can be great and they are most flexible. Good advantage! Way to go for that girl!


Quoting PhoenixsMommy10:

There was a girl on my high school's wrestling team. She was 4'10" and around 100lbs. She was the feather weight champ.



Quoting Destiny907:

She won't be doing it in the 7th Grade, unless she bulks up like an Amazon.................boys are stronger than most of us women by the time they are 12.

Very true. I doubt she will by 7th grade anyways. However there are no other sports for children her age right now and she is enjoying it while it lasts. They let 4th grade and up play basketball and volleyball. She is only in kindergarten!

I would not think of gymnastics as a harmless sport. I love watching it though.


Quoting illinoismommy83:

Do you get nervous when they wrestle? My old co-worker's son was on the high school wrestling team and she would show me videos of the match. My anxiety levels were through the roof. One small wrong move and the kids would be paralyzed for life!

Ugh. Yes, I know it can happen in gymnastics and swimming and other seemingly harmless things... but wrestling just seems like the risk of injury would be much greater.
