No, it is not. I did it, and I can't understand why we put up with that for so long. My kids are not going to the Olympics. But why do all the parents leave their kids in these awful situations over high compulsory scores? They have no way of knowing if their child will make it to level 10 at that point, let alone the Olympics or collegiate gymnastics. But they do. I don't know what it is about gymnastics, but parents become very, very attached. I can understand the upper levels and elites at Haney's gym and being afraid to rock the boat. As difficult as it is to get USAG to respond to complaints, it would be so intimidating to speak out against Haney. I've gotten more vocal about our experience, but I also worry it could potentially "blackball" my girls--they are just optional level gymnasts, but it feels like speaking up is still frowned upon.Sometimes I look back and realise that it was not worth it. Is it ever worth leaving your kid in bad coaching situations so they can participate in their sport? I might start a new topic on this question.
