  1. Is there anyone happy to private message with me to discuss my conundrum on if I do it or not?

    I don't want to post all the details for public viewing incase someone picks up who I am & the decision gets made for her!
  2. I can help you! Just pm me :)
  3. Pm me I would be happy to help
  4. So far you have a gymnast and a coach responding. I will throw my hat in the ring as a parent. Feel free to pm me.
  5. My message will be very long & I've just typed one in reply to a PM so I thank you three & will certainly message you tomorrow as I need to sleep now but the more thoughts the better & I appreciate it.
  6. You can copy and paste.
  7. Copy and paste! You can pm me as well if you would like
  8. Me too! We changed about a year and a half ago.
  9. Happy to help if I can! We've done two gym changes here in the UK (one locally, and another for relocation) :)
  10. I didn't think to copy & paste but it was the middle of the night so that's probably why!
  11. Thank you for all your offers. I have messaged people that are in the UK system as I think they will understand it more.
  12. if you are looking for a coach POV in the UK I would recommend @Jenny @marie83 @Faith, both Jenny and faith are parents too, me I is a humble parent who has been around the block a bit. Hope you get it sorted xxx

  18. I also am coach and have been the mother of a fairly successful gymnast who did change gyms half way through her career. I'd be happy for you to message me.
