I have a question about how my dd's team is broken up for practices. There are 16 girls on our level 4 team. There are 3 6-year olds, a few 7 year olds and the rest are 8 & above. The older girls get grouped together because they competed Level 3 together last year and are all at about the same level. Our coaches pull the girls out into 3 groups every practice, and it never fails, my dd who is 6, is always pulled out with a group of 7 year olds that just don't want to work. My dd is very committed, works hard and I'm afraid she may begin to take on bad habits. Also, what ends up happening, is the coach will sometimes spend too much time working with one of the other girls because their skills are just sloppy (I am not exagerating). There is one girl in particular that I think should be sent down to a rec class. She doesn't seem to have the focus to be on the team. I know they're supposed to have fun but when they're out there working on the beam, there's no time for being silly. The coach usually yells at all of them for one girls mistakes. Am I just being one of 'those' mothers? Should I say something to her coach or just keep my mouth shut??
