Tifton- Every gymnast has their favorite event.
"Floor, because you can't really fall off of it like a beam," admits 10 year old EmileeRoberts.
But even when they fall coaches remind girls that making mistakes are what's life's all about.
"You have your good things and you have your bad things; your good days and bad days, and this will follow you all through your life. Your life will never be perfect," says Coach Shelly McCloud.
As they go head to head with competitors from across Georgia and try to claim enough points to make it to state, the girls keep that message in mind. Still, with 12-20 hours of practice a week they are able to display flexibility on and off the mat.
"All of our team girls at our gym are honor roll and merit roll students. They know how to prioritize and they know what's important. So, their just good kids and good students, and it keeps them active and busy and that's what it's all about," says Dream It owner Jill Bergeron.
"It teaches me to believe in myself, and to just do better. It's just fun," adds 10 year old Shelley Anderson.
Dream It gymnastics has also taught the girl's to dream.
"I want to go to the University of Georgia and do gymnastics there," says Anderson.
"I want to compete in college," says Roberts.
Already the girls have shown that they've got what it takes to balance what's important in their lives, and the ability to stick it out until they capture their dreams.
All 48 of the Dream It team gymnasts qualified to compete at the state level.
