I hate waiting to find out whether or not you'r e moving up to the next level. If you qualify for state, you are eligible to move up at our YMCA, but the coaches give each level a list of skills to be working on. If you don't learn most of the skills, you can't move up. They also look at your attitude, how you use practice time, and how well your work with the other girls potentially on your team. The optionals coach has hinted to me several times to "start looking for music" and things like that, but the director will make the final decision and it's killing me. Does anyone else go through this?
