    For Parents What do parents want in a coach?

    I want a coach that is more concerned about the mental well being of my daughter than the competions won. I want a coach that will work with my daughter to help her grow her skills and knowledge of the sport in a healthy manner while also having fun.

    For Parents Asked to Join Level 1 at age 4

    My daughter is 6 and has been in the gym since "mommy and me" classes at 2. Our gym doesn't compete until level 4. I have always been happy with that. I believe that my daughter was not developmentally ready for competing before now, I think 7 is a better age for us to consider competing...

    Thanks Ladies! I actually get to go tonight so I will get to experience it first hand for the first time.
