Hello. My daughter completed level 7 and did reasonably well and is eager to learn level 8 skills. The problem is that she still practices the FHS vault a lot. How does this benefit her? Is it foundational for achieving a good level 8 vault?

She does do yurchenko drills a couple times a week, but I don't understand why she ever has to do the front handspring vaults at practice.

I am worried and would like to ask the coach but do not want to question her plan because I am afraid of offending her.

Especially with the level 8 vault rule changes, her coaches will want her to have the handspring in her back pocket in case the yurchenko isn't happening on a particular day... or if she tanks it in competition, etc.
