My dd is the tallest on her team, and lately she is complaining of hitting her feet on the bottom bar when doing giants or anything on high bar. Her coach absolutely refuses to change the setting of the bars to accomodate her height, and my dd is complaining that it's scary to know she is going to hit her feet. Her coach is not real receptive to parents getting involved in issues in the gym, so I'm not sure what to do. She had my dd crying today, telling her she will just have to adjust to the width of the bars. Can anyone explain to me if this is normal? Should the gymnast adjust to the space available between the bars, or should the bars be set according to the gymnast?
