In the second season, the girls must face the consequences of going against the U.S. Gymnastics National Committee while dealing with the arrival of men's Olympic champion Austin Tucker. Their future is threatened when the National Gymnastics Organization suspends their coach Sasha.
After going rogue and defeating the Chinese National Team but going against the NGO, the The Rock girls are at their best. But when they find out the National Team is having team practices without them before an Invitational meet in France, the girls are not that confident that they will make the cut. And now Payson is back and she is determined to get to the top once again, but is she really ready? And Carter and Lauren's relationship is starting to heat up, but when will they let Kaylie know about it?
After being allowed back on the U.S. National Team, the girls head to France where everything is left on the mat in order to get one step closer to achieving their dream. With cockiness, jealousy, sabotage and self-doubt at an all-time high, as well as Ellen Beals constantly looming over the girls, the pressure is almost too much to bear. For Kaylie and Lauren, the bickering continues, while Emily pines for Damon and Payson puts her Olympic future on the line. Will Emily be able to have it all – gymnastics and the boy she loves? And will Payson be able to defy the odds and qualify for the National Team?
When the men's Olympic champion, Austin Tucker, begins temporarily training at The Rock, egos clash when he tries to move the girls' equipment. To settle the matter between the male and female athletes, Sasha decides the two must compete for gym space, but there's a catch – the girls must perform on the men's apparatuses and vice versa. With Payson unsure about her future in the gymnastics world, Kaylie, Emily and Lauren are forced to face the men on their own. Will they be able to beat the boys and have the gym they made famous remain theirs? And will Payson choose to fight for her dream, or forever leave the sport that destroyed her?
The Rock gears up for the annual awards banquet dinner, The Rocky Awards, and Lauren is determined to win the Miss Congeniality award the best way she knows how – with bribery and cheating. But even after all the free smoothies, barrettes and massages, will Lauren get her way or will she be usurped by a silent but strong contender – Emily?
With World tryouts in the near future, Sasha pushes the girls to better their already difficult floor routines. During what should be a time to focus, Lauren instead finds herself looking to Carter to say the "L" word, while at the same time trying to one-up Emily. Lauren is not the only one facing challenges: Kaylie faces struggles on and off the mat, while Payson wonders if she can ever be the graceful flower Sasha envisions her being.
Austin throws a party at his lake house and invites the girls, but Kaylie doesn't want them go because she wants them to focus on their training. Sasha and Summer go on their first date while trying to keep their relationship under wraps.
Kaylie, Lauren, and Emily have their final National Team practice before World Team tryouts, and Ellen Beals seems to have it out for Emily before the practice even starts!
An ultimatum backfires on Chloe, and Emily struggles to help out her brother, Brian.
After a rough National Team practice, the girls must deal with the outcome. Thrown by the truth behind Emily's scholarship, both the Tanners and the Kmetkos must deal with the outcome of two very angry girls and two adults who are no longer sure they can trust each other. And when information surfaces about Lauren's relationship with Carter, could that secret be the nail in the coffin for Chloe and Steve? And with the true identity of the Kipman Group out there, will Emily be willing to swallow her pride and accept the money to keep her dream alive?
Lauren's mother returns to Boulder to forge a relationship; Damon takes Emily on a date.
World Team tryouts have finally arrived, and The Rock girls have to fight for spots on the team.
Kaylie is put in rehab for her eating disorder and makes a new friend, Maeve, a model who has been in and out of rehab before. Sasha decides to leave The Rock and move back to Romania. Emily is told that under her probation that she is under house arrest and must wear an ankle monitor.
The Rock gets a new coach, and everyone (especially Payson) is a little skeptical about her ability to coach them properly. Lauren, however, sees this as an opportunity to get off on the right foot with a new coach that doesn't know about her manipulative tricks.
After being made co-captains, Lauren and Payson are at each other's throats. Steve finds the altered video of Payson and Sasha's kiss and confronts Lauren about it. Emily finally discovers that Chloe's new job is at a strip club.
The Rock girls prepare for a meet with the Pinewood Club, the worst-ranked gym club in the country. The girls worry that the Pinewood Club won't give them enough of a competition to prepare them for an up-coming international meet in Hungary. Meanwhile, Damon and Kaylie become closer as he starts recording his album at the recording studio in Kaylie's house.
On the way to the international meet in Hungary, the girls get a connecting flight to Romania to convince Sasha to come back to The Rock.
Emily's worst fears about Damon spending so much time with Kaylie are realized when Kaylie confesses to kissing Damon.
Kaylie finally returns to training at The Rock, but the public is under the impression that her time away from the gym was from an ACL injury, not rehab for anorexia. Soon after, Sasha announces that Kelly Parker is going to replace Emily on the World team, and that Kaylie will be replaced, as well, since she has not had enough time to train.
Kelly Parker's manager, Shelia, arrives at the gym and starts scheming to make Kelly the most recognizable girl on the team, which includes trying to get Kelly to sabotage Kaylie by exposing her anorexia to the public. Meanwhile, Payson and Max come across a stray puppy while out jogging, and as they try to keep the puppy hidden until they can find it a home, Lauren becomes jealous of the amount of time they're spending together.
Shelia continues her quest to ruin Kaylie, which now involves taking away Kaylie's new endorsement deal with Healthy Bar. However, after hearing Kaylie give an interview about how Kelly should be the team captain because of her experience and accomplishments, Kelly starts to feel differently about their rivalry. At the same time, Kim and Summer start to put the pieces together about the true origins of the Payson/Sasha kiss video.
