Many of us have experienced the “invitation” into our gym’s team. It is a difficult decision to make, that’s for sure. However, if your child has been invited then the coaches truly believe she is ready. Will it be more hours? Yes of course, by practicing more hours and days is how these gymnasts get better. The coaches see her hard work, motivation and positive attitude to be a part of the team. The best we could is give it a shot, if she decides it’s NOT what she wants then nothing was lost and the opportunity was given to her. At the end, you the parent will decide, BUT keep in mind they are being invited for a reason.
