Last night my dd was cut from another team tryout. This is the 3rd time in 4 months teams have said no to her. She is rehabbing her back after rehabbing her wrist, she is too tall, and lost her kip again throughout the last month because her coaches didn't want her in the gym with her back injury. She loves the sport, insisted on competing USAG because she loves working out 12+ hours a week, and everyone I know says her work ethic is impeccable. I don't know what happened during the last tryout, maybe she lost her spark in her eye, maybe they just want teeny tiny gymnasts,maybe she is not a good gymnast. I feel terrible that I put her through this again she was devastated. One of the gym owners asked me when she was going to start, and the other gym owner said she just isn't ready to compete and to come back some other time. I guess I was a bit dellusional, maybe I thought she was better than she was, she competed one meet last year L5 and scored a 33.5 (I think) I really believed in my dd and thought her love for the sport and her hard work and tenacity during rehab would pull her through this which is why I agreed to this tryout in the first place. I told her last night she really needs to consider doing something else like dance, diving, etc. Naturally it didn't go over very well. I hope today is a better day. I am saying to no to any more tryouts, I can't put her through this anymore.
