Hi- my daughter is 6 and has been on preteam for a couple of years. Shes able to join jo level 3 with her skills this fall. The practice schedule though would be 3 days/week and about 3 hours each class. This schedule seems like alot and I know shes not dedicated enough to want to do that. (* sometimes it was really difficult to get her to even go to preteam). Plus she wouldnt have time for other things like dance etc. So I though maybe she can do something like xcel (?) or something less intense but still give her a chance to have "meets". I was thinking that maybe if she did something like that for a year then she might really like being on a "team" and get inspired and then maybe want to go the jo route afterwards. But I was told that shes too young for xcel but she can do (i think it was usaigc??) but also i was told that girls will rarely switch over to jo once they start on another route, that basically if they are not driven enough at age 6, they wont be later either. So im a little confused. I know gymnasts start young but i didnt realize all these 6 year olds were so driven at this young age. Maybe someone can shed some light, give some advice. Thanks.
