Hi gymtigermom, Yes she competed this past year with gym A. She was not doing the day program though (which is more serious). They don't sugarcoat anything at this gym, so they have no problem saying "no" to even the smallest request. What happened was when she first started at the gym both owners said they thought she was a "good" gymnast. According to some of the other moms, this is quite a compliment compared to things they were told about their daughters. However, they did not pay much attention to my daughter until they saw her compete. Once they saw her compete each coach came to me at a separate time and said they thought she "competed well" and explained why they were saying this. (It was not based on her scores). The owner initiated a serious conversation with me about this, I didn't ask anything about the meets. Considering she has only had a total of 3 conversations with me in a season, her tone sounded serious. They changed her training group and said they wanted her in the more serious day program. They calculated her age to see how long they would have to train her. To clarify, they did not say specifically that she would have to do levels 5, 6, and 7. They don't make formal plans and tell the parents what they are. I just assumed they would do this since they don't do prepop, but I am not really sure. I have seen them have a girl do one level the fall season, and then another level the spring season.
