Our current gym really encourages teammates to cheer each other on at meets. Sounds great, except my daughter doesn't like when others are cheering her on. In fact, so much that is makes her self conscious and shy to the point where she doesn't want to even do the event at a meet. I'm not talking about cheering from the stands. I'm talking about your teammates on the floor with you cheering you on from three feet away. This rattles her concentration I think too. She really wants to do the meets though, just without her teammates loud cheering. Not sure if I should say something to the coaches or just try to work with my child to keep her concentration and ignore the cheers. She's only 7.
