    For Parents Level 8 quit gymnastics

    I see so many gymnasts quit the gym at the level 8 . What reasons for quitting? I am very curious level 8 already high level, why they quit gymnastics. It is because of high school , too much work? It is not worth it investing too much time and money for the sport?

    For Parents I'm at a loss - quit or push harder?

    DD is a 9yo Level 6 and while talented has always been inconsistent. Amazing potential, not great focus and mixed results. She came out of quarantine on fire and got all her L6 skills in the summer. Then she started school again (with night practice) and lost many of them. She seems tired, cries...

    WAG Lack of Motivation and Want to Quit

    The past few days I’ve wanted to quit gymnastics. I had debilitating muscle pain in my back a few weeks ago (MRI was clear), and then it cleared up in about a month, and then I strained my back again last week doing too many front aerials.
