    For Parents Xcel vs JO preteam

    Yes! You just very well verbalized exactly how I feel. She is 6 and we have no idea where this is going. She just loves it right now. But will she in a year, 5 years? I have no idea.

    Thanks! Yeah that makes sense as far as teaching them Lol. Thanks. I kind of thought so too. That kind of attitude is definitely what I don’t want in a gym. But that’s just me.

    Need advice on picking a program. So we are new to all of this. My dd is 6 and originally joined preteam at an Xcel gym. She has all the required skills for silver but needs to be more consistent getting over the mat for vaulting. Shortly after joining pre team at this gym she was asked to join...
