I am not sure as to her training and such. All I can attest to is that last year our head coach of the Team was a former level 8 gymnast. I saw improvement almost every week in my daughter. This year my daughter has consistantly went down in almost all events and all around score each meet that they go to. And NO she does NOT take concerns, suggestions, complaints or criticism well. There are 3 other coaches that were former gymnasts but they have the head coach - non gymnast with our largest group of higher level girls. Most of the girls are not doing well this year and the judges said that they are losing points on their form. Just wondering if she doesnt have the know how, how can she teach it?
