It is good to see a young person trying hard and it is determination and lots of effort that will achieve success, but you asked for advice so here goes:

To get a successful back catch you need exercises to progress as follows:

1. Do standard splits getting hips properly square, and hold the splits in total comfort (without difficulty).

2. Do slight over splits of 6 ins or 15cm until you can and hold the oversplit easily.

3. In the oversplits do backbends with head brushing your rear thigh.

4. On the floor in a chest stand, do overhead splits, the same position as a back catch but not standing.

5. Then you are ready to stand and do the back catch.

6. But if your shoulders are not flexible enough to be able to grasp the raised leg at the knee then shoulder exercises will need to be done.
