I just received the news that I will be doing another season of level eight and I want to quit. I have all the skills I need for level 9 except my double back off of bars and the only reason I don’t have that is because my coaches won’t let me work it. I really don’t want to do another season of eight and I have no motivation continue gymnastics. I don’t want to put all this work in just to compete old skills. I am also scared of quitting though because that means leaving all of my friends and just leaving the only thing I’ve ever known. Both my teammates moved up and all of my gym friends are are levels 9 and 10 but I am still scared to leave. There is anyone gym I could go to that might put me on 9 but I am scared to leave the only thing I’ve ever know. This gym is not part of usag and that scares me too. My dream is to do college gymnastics and I feel as if that’s over because I am 15 and in 8. I really don’t want to quit I just want to do 9 but I also don’t want to move gyms.
