My daughter has become very discouraged in gymnastics. She is in the level 4 team age 7 soon to be 8 next month. About 2 weeks ago she got her roundoff backhandspring then she hurt her finger doing it at open gym, she was unable to get it back before the last meet we had last weekend. Her team was the ones who were going 2 hours to do only vault then her and the other girls competed beam and a few did floor. In her last meet she was the only one who did not compete floor another girl besides her also did not do bars. I was very upset since my daughter literally cried herself to sleep the night before the meet. I spoke with the coach who stated she can not do floor until she gets her roundoff backhandspring (she felt that she will probally have it next meet). She also was kind of discouraging when I mentioned private lessons she said wait till next week. My daughter was alright in practice the other day but tonight when I picked her up she was crying again and said she wanted to quit. I saw them doing conditioning at the gym tonight and she said she almost passed out. She said she got her backhandspring without connecting. Before she went to gym tonight she was doing gymnastics in my basement and was excited to go class was even going to go to open gym. After class she was crying and wants to quit. She said she will finish out the last 3 meets. I can't stand seeing her go through this at 7 but I know deep down she loves gymnastics. She did okay at the events that she did and came in average with the other girls on her team. Has anyone else gone through this? She basically has stopped doing all her other activities and sports in order to do gymnastics. If she stays on the team she will have go all summer and give up the swim team she has stated in the past that she was alright with this but now she has said she doesn't want to do gymnastics. She mentioned recreational gymnastics but when I spoke with the head coach she said my daughter would be bored with this. Any advice?
