    My flyer had huge ankle rolling issues, and it turns out as soon as she started squeezing her muscles and controlling her body properly, they stopped. She may literally just need to squeeze

    Having your backspot hold her ankles and you explaining to your flyer that she needs to hold her wait equally instead of heeling, this might help, if not tell a coach she/he can help with the issue.

    YES to this post!!!
    Braces, taping, etc. will only make the ankles weaker. My kid has been doing ankle exercises to strengthen her ankles because she sometimes has the same issues however we have bases who have never based at this level before so it's all a learning process for the GROUP! Good luck!!
