I have two girls who have been doing gymnastics for a little over a year. My oldest daughter whose 7 was on a pre competition team for a little under year and a few months ago she was moved up to competition team. I’m finding now that her and the other new girls who moved up are being left out of drills and almost segregated from the other girls. It is a USAGIC team so my daughter is considered cooper 1 and the girls with her were all competing at that same level. However the new girls are told to do handstands against a wall for up to 20 minutes while they do things with the other girls that they are plenty capable of doing. They’re left out of being praised for new skills because they aren’t allowed to work on new things. My daughter works hard and made tremendous growth on pre competition team and is capable of many things but now is feeling left out and that it’s unfair they’re treated differently from the other girls by being separated and not allowed to do drills with them. So I guess my question is am I reading into it too much? Is this normal and will it change after some time? Or is it a valid concern I should bring up to coaches? Thanks in advance!
