This post is very interesting to me. I feel like my daughter has had a unique experience (and maybe it's not all that unique, just seems like it hasn't been the norm). I'm very anxious/excited/nervous to see how things in this sport will be changing. If the coaches coaching style will change, if the drive and desire of the gymnasts will change. Heck, I wonder how many will even return or if they do, how many will remain after a few weeks. This sport is going to look very different, I just hope it doesn't change so much that it becomes obsolete.
Here's the thing... do you think that experience is right for everyone?
Don't get me wrong... I'm still totally into ultra high level... but I think way too many kids are being put into it that just don't fit. Coaches need to be very very careful and make sure that the initial drive is from the child and not the parents or coaches.
