If staying on the JO track is the most important thing than take the small group offer
^ I think this is the question from my perspective.... whether or not the small group means staying on the "JO track" or not. The original post indicated that the 3 other girls in the group were being "demoted from Xcel Bronze or pre-team." So I think it is a little unclear exactly where this group is headed (despite the owner's assurance that "the sky's the limit"). But if I was otherwise happy at a gym, I'd probably personally be willing to give it a year to find out. Does the gym allow mobility between Xcel and JO?
