to do an ariel (sp?) today. She nearly did it, but I was a nervous wreck when her coach asked her if she wanted to try it. Of course, she has no fear, so she said yes. She tried it twice, the first time better than the 2nd (the coach didn't spot her). Then she had one of the other level 3 girls give it a try. She was recently put on team (this is her 3rd week in team practice), and she didn't do so well---it was kind of scary watching her! She wasn't spotted either. Our new coach is really nice, and I think she is wanting to make it fun for them, but I'm a little concerned---should I be? My dd is 6 (will be 7 in Feb.), and the other girl is about to be 7. I guess I really don't know what to expect. The other coach retired, and this is just our 2nd week with this new coach (we were at gymnastics camp all last week). I really don't want my daughter to get hurt, but maybe they aren't supposed to be spotted doing this ---I don't know. The new coach is young (a college student), and this is her first time to coach a team. She was coaching the developmental class and just took over coaching the team a few weeks ago. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
