I worked the front desk at our gym when they implemented the TOPs program, and when they changed it from invite only to try-outs.
You would think that -I- personally stole the Olympics from under them.
About 1/3rd of the invite-only kids dropped out as soon as that group doubled, moms said they weren't paying extra for everyone to get the same training.
(I have some strong feelings on this insanity)
The TOPs program definitely creates crazy parents… but it’s a good program. With some minor modifications… it’s a great Level 10 training program (instead of elite). That’s what I would like to see more of… TOPs for L10… basically just starting with a solid foundation.
