Over the years on ChalkBucket and in gymnastics in general I have noticed that what is ideal to one person / family is not at all ideal for another.
What is your ideal competitive program?
What are the most important things for you and your athlete / family?
Fun & safe are going to be assumed in this thread so they are not listed below. Feel free to talk about them in your response if you have something that you need to say about them.
I'll post some factors here...
- Workout hours
- Workout time of day
- Progress / Skills
- Experience of coaches
- Results / Winning
- Size of team / Number of athletes at each level
- Scholarship history
- Coaches willingness to learn
- Gym atmosphere
- Coach / athlete ratio
- Productivity of workouts
- I will add more when they come up in the conversation
Let's hear your opinion!
