Okay so I seem to have lots of questions and well, I am sure to have more! So, my DD is a 9 year old Level 7 and has been scoring on all events 9.5-9.7's, so to me it seems like she has a grasp for Level 7 and is ready to move on to Level 8 for next spring. She does need to get a few more skills, but has plenty of time for that. Here is my dilema. The owner of our small gym seems to want to hold my DD back in 7 for another year so she is the "winner" all year? I do NOT under any circumstances believe that is okay. He says oh she has time on her side.. and blah blah.. HOW would you handle this? I am against this, my daughter is already bored to death with the Level 7 skills etc... and I honestly don't see any benefit in it? Am I missing something? I hate that I am feeling like I have to take this up with the coaches and tell them my thoughts, it makes me sick to my stomach.
