My daughter competed AAU Level 4 in the spring and did really well. She took first place at state on bars and finished fourth all around in the elite division. She had just turned seven right before state. Although my daughter did well, I felt like her old gym did not emphasize form. Additionally my daughter had started having problems with some of the girls (she is very quiet but a hard worker) always cutting her in line, etc. We decided to try some other gyms in the area to see if they were a better fit for her. Right before state we picked a gym and decided after state we would let her gym know she was leaving. The day after state her old gym called and told us they were aware we were having concerns and visiting other gyms and asked us not to come back. That was fine because we were starting the new gym the next day. I didn't have the heart to tell my daughter what happened and now every day she asks if we can go back to her old gym because,as she says, her coaches are wondering where she is and she wants to say hi to them. We were very active at the old gym and never caused problems. Additionally, my daughter is excelling at her new gym but says it doesn't feel like home. She was placed in the advance group and immediately asked to be in their TOPS program. I just wanted what was best for my daughter. I didn't know gymnastics and the coaches could be like that.
