    Arizona Sunrays owner Dan Witenstein has been added to the permanently Ineligible list

    Yes. From my limited experience in cases handled by The US Center For SafeSport (and this would’ve been handled by the center, not USAG SS) it’s a min of a year and half to two years from start to finish. They are extremely backlogged and are really a relatively new Organization so probably need...

    Arizona Sunrays owner Dan Witenstein has been added to the permanently Ineligible list

    I’m not so sure he was cleared. I know that an article I read from 2018 said cleared....but the article I read back then was quoting either his gym or him where they stated he was cleared after a short time and taken back off the list. Could be me, but it makes much more sense that what...

    For Parents Would you report emotional abuse -- has anything really changed?

    That is so sad!! I am super proud of you for reporting though. That took a lot of guts to do, especially the second time.

    For Parents Would you report emotional abuse -- has anything really changed?

    @MuggleMom i get what you’re saying. I wasn’t meaning owners responsibility (hadn’t really thought about owners or absent owners at all). I was more meaning other coaches working alongside a coach that is found guilty of abusive training practices.

    For Parents Would you report emotional abuse -- has anything really changed?

    that is a hard question. Although not involving the contenders for National Team, I know of one case (recently resolved) where multiple athletes (many still competing, just not at said gym) came forward against a former coach. SafeSport found this person guilty through a preponderance of...

    30 for 30 Heavy Medals

    thought it was well worth listening to. My only negative about it was that I wish that they'd have identified the voices more often than the first time they speak. For those that are not familiar with some of the people speaking, or just have a hard time keeping track, it would be easy to get...

    For Parents Twins...team or no team?

    I can not truly answer that question lol. It depends on what club you are wishing to join. I have been at some that had very minimal parental requirements (boosters were truly just for athlete benefit and parents only requirement was to be supportive of your child and speak to them with open...

    Thoughts on Svetlana Khorkina interview?

    Khorkina is khorkina. She has only really ever cared about promoting herself to be in front of the cameras.....front and center, all attention to khorkina. So nothing she says in that interview is of any surprise to me. I believe she got what she wanted, shock value and all attention tuned in...

    a new organization?? NGA

    So, I notice that they have a section advertising safesport. That’s all well and good, makes nice PR.....But here’s the problem with that. U.S. Center for Safesport only govern US Olympic and Paralympic NGBs. It does not however protect members of other organizations. Meaning that you (as a...

    a new organization?? NGA

    @MILgymFAM my dd was artistic, she is D1 now. Here’s the thing. Remember when Xcel was introduced? It was supposed to be geared more toward the athlete and families that wanted a less aggressive approach (less hours per week, slower paced). And there are some gyms that maintain that...

    a new organization?? NGA

    That is awesome that your gym was like this. I can honestly say we have never been part of any program that was the family's choice as to which meets they can afford to attend. Every gym we were at, every meet was mandatory.

    a new organization?? NGA

    I agree with that. The people you hire represent and reflect your company's image, you are responsible for what they say and how they conduct themselves and if you don't like how they do that.....you terminate their employment. Otherwise, I as a consumer assume that that is the way you wish to...

    a new organization?? NGA

    I agree. I did not even like when they added Regional for Level 7 in usag. Although my kid was already past that level when they added it, I just thought that it extended their season too long. My kid would have rather spent that time after L7 State uptraining and preparing for L8 instead of...

    a new organization?? NGA

    I have never heard of aau making a person ineligible. I think that it is just a lot harder to get to ncaa from aau. I can’t think of any off hand that have done that path successfully

    a new organization?? NGA

    Wouldn’t be anything different than what there is now with multiple organizations.....like USAG, AAU, USAIGC. Just another org having their own post season
