Hi there I need you to this group and I’ve actually never even seen this website before tonight but it looks like it’s going to be a great resource for me going forward. My question is this my daughter has been doing gymnastics for a couple of years started at the age of seven and is now nine but she also had some downtime during the pandemic as I’m sure all gymnasts did. When she originally started she started JO level two and when we came back in full swing in August she decided to switch to excel and was placed in silver. I really love the gym that we are at but the Excel path is new to our gym and they had to hire a coach because they actually had a lot of interest in Excel an hour to JO coaches could not handle it. They hired a 17-year-old girl who’s in high school and had been doing gymnastics from 5 up till 15 years old so she has had a lot of experience with the sport. There are three levels throughout the 13 girls in Excel we have a couple of bronze girls about six or seven silver girls and three gold girls. All of them train about 10 hours a week. At our first meet in December I was shocked to see that my daughter had not really progressed from August to her first competition. She had also expressed to me a couple of times that her new coach gets easily upset with the girls and has been mean at times telling them to shut up. So I have made sure that I am there during her practice more often now to observe what is going on in the gym. It appears to me that this girl is too young and does not have enough help to coach all three levels of Excel, And all of her focus seems to be on the gold girls. Any advice on what I should do? Also is there any requirements to be a coach like training certifications or age requirements or as well as number of students per coach. Thank you so much in advance for any information or advice you can give. I would love to see my daughter progress in the sport as she really loves gymnastics and I want to see her be safe while competing and also be encouraged to progress and learn new skills.
