My daughter will compete her last meet tommorrow and do all around. This will be her second meet doing this. Eventhough the girls are finally doing all events, they are still very unhappy. They often cry before during and after gym. The coach is very impatient and not postive with them. I think her techniques are poor and she misses little details that could get them higher scores they only get high 7 low 8. I get a negative feeling when I take my daughter to gym. A couple months ago she wanted to quit but she really loves gymnastics. I took her to a trial class at a gym I heard really postive things about. She loved it I loved it. The class they would put her in for now would be invitational only 1 hour a week until she was ready for team. Their team starts at level 5. They also train up levels the level 5 are learning 6 and 7 skills. Her gym did not teach them level 4 skill until they were already on the team competing which is why the girls were so stressed and upset at not competeing in all the events. Anyway my gut feeling tells me to switch I am nervous that my daughter will lose her skills she currently trains 10hrs week. My daughter wants to switch and does not care if she is on the team yet( she just turned 8 ). If she stays at the current gym she will probally compete level5 in the fall but I am afraid she will be unhappy have a bad summer and quit gymnastics at her current gym. Any thoughts? Has anybody gone through this?
