Mine is 17 and a soon to be senior. L8/9. Loves gymnastics and other things. She has L10 friends incredibly likely to be or about to be recruited. And friends who have moved on from gymnastics long ago. A few of those being actively recruited in other sports.
Mine does many things, music, gymnastics in HS (went to states) along with club, lacrosse. She has been offered “more” over the course of many years now regarding gymnastics and lacrosse to possibly continue to college, camps, more hours, travel teams. She has always said nope, I don’t want to do NCAA level sports in college. To her that’s a job, she doesn’t want sports to be a job. Including when approached this weekend.
She has never done more than 12 hours of gym usually 9 during the school year. We are changing gyms next year so she can stay competitive for HS, and she is amandant no high hours.
She is a well rounded 4.0 student. An amazing and ordinary kid. And she is happy like that. She will likely go to a state university. She is looking forward to finding a school with both club gymnastics and lacrosse. But her area of interest of study and gymnastics will be the must haves, lacrosse a bonus. And she may start at community college.
She is and will be fine. It’s her life, she gets to decide. I just made sure to offer her opportunities
