    International Elite Maggie Haney suspended

    Academic All-Americans

    You definitely did not make us sad. We already were. My boy is a senior, so missing all the championship meets this year is extra tough. This was supposed to be the fun at the end of his JO career.

    It soudsn like they expect a 6yo to act more like an 8yo. That, along with the back and forth decision making, would make me look elsewhere. She needs to be somwhere where they coach her to be the best kid she can be.

    For Parents Incentives

    It misses the whole point. It really does take time. The outside incentive will not make the muscle memory come mreo quickly. The reward for working hard to get the skill is ..... the skill!

    Repeating l4

    I would look at other gyms now. A coach saying that they don't have time to work on shaping and positioning is telling you that he does not have time to coach your child. This was an issue at our alst gym, the caochw as spread thin and the lower elvels did not progress. Repeating should be what...
