My daughter is 6 and is on the level 2 team. She only started gymnastics a year ago. She practices 4 hours a week. She seems to really like it and never once complains about going. She does get tired after practicing understandable after 2 hours. She has all the level 2 skills (except the mill circle) as she is still working on that. She is currently learning the routines, etc. She even has a couple level 3 skills (handstand forward roll, handstand to bridge kick over). They aren’t perfect by any means. She is not a prodigy not to put her down but she struggles with back flexibility and backbends and kickovers don’t come easy for her. Her coach said she is still young and will get there and just will need to stretch a lot more. Anyway, my point is that I only put her in gymnastics last year because we knew someone else doing it and she was only doing dance one day a week so it was like an extra fun activity. This year she started at another gym for rec (we only switched gyms due to covid regulations with the other one). She was bored in the rec class and wanted to learn more skills. So we wound up finding a gym that has preteam and here we are. She said she loves it and wants to compete. The problem is she also dances. She has been dancing since she was 3 and this year she is on the mini competition team. She is doing 3 hours a week of dance. She said she wants to continue with that as well. I told her she could do both this year because it works our schedule wise but next year she will have to pick one if she wants to compete with both. If she picks gymnastics she could take a dance class on the rec level and vice versa. It’s just way too much time and money and we also have a 4 year old girl doing both on the rec level as well. Anyway- she goes back and forth on what she likes better. I honestly thought that she would have picked dance but she seems to really enjoy gymnastics. I told her gymnastics is a big time commitment as she moves up which I’m not sure she understands. Of course I want her to pick what she enjoys but I also don’t want her to get burnt out from an activity. I told my husband the hours if she moves up to Level 3 and he was like Absolutely no way. He thinks it’s eventually going to fizzle out. I just feel like if it was going to fizzle out she would say she wouldn’t want to go to gymnastics and that hasn’t happened. I guess my point is to ask if anyone else had to have their child at a young age decide or eventually decide for them what the right choice is?
