I mean it’s coming out of my pocket and the coaches at our new gym reached out to me about doing them. They obviously see the potential and it’s not even about “just for pre team” it’s to instill the correct form, shaping, and discipline needed for the sport. She takes multiple breaks so it’s not a 5 year old just going hard for an hour. My husband and I want to give her the tools for success and in our opinion it’s not too early for that. If you don’t think privates are good for your child then don’t do them. It’s really as simple as thatI just don’t get privates at a young age just to get to pre-team. Now optionals ok I get all that m, but it just seems like a whole lot to me just to get a skill for pre-team.
