I have a question. I know many gyms train up and compete down, but if you made an elite compulsory qualifying score, but competed level 8 for season doesn't that just mean you should be competing at a higher level? One of the gyms in our area qualified 3 kids. 2 of the 3 were competing in elite qualifiers. Is HOPES level 8 or are these kids doing level 10 skills in HOPES? (Our gym does not use the program, so I am unsure of how the skill levels compare). I just read another post about many former elites dropping back down to level 10 and therefore always being on top of the podium at competitions. This is the same for these girls. They are on the top of the podium at every meet, but one would expect that if they have jr. elite level skills but are actually competing at level 8.
