My gymmie is repeating level 4 this season after a rough season. We made a gym switch to a "real" gym prior to last season and the new coaches had lots of things to fix and Bars and beam have taken the longest to fix, but are now looking fantastic. I'm really excited for this season. Some kids are being given a chance to do back to back seasons 4/5 and as of right now, mine isn't. Some of the kids that are, my daughter has always outscored at meets, and those kids get more hours, work with stronger coaches and seem to get more opportunities. Their parents are also more involved in the gym, tell their kids to "perform" in front of the head coach, are friends with all the coaches on FB, etc. Some coaches have told me that my kid is hardworking and a beautiful gymnast, yet, she seems to get overlooked on things like doing back to back seasons. I'm hoping that once the season starts, they will see how well she is doing and she will get a shot and doing a back to back season and be given an opportunity to succeed.
