Need some insights from some seasoned cheer folks. My daughter is 10yr old and was on a youth 1 prep team last season. This season she tried out and made the youth 1 full year team however, so far, she has no tumbling parts in the routine. According to her, she bases for one stunt and is a front spot for another. She doesn't do jumps either. She comes home upset that she stands in the back so much. As far as I know, the routine isn't finished though. Questions: Is it appropriate to ask the coach whether she'll have a bigger role or wait and see what happens when the routine is finished? What's the best way to approach this, if at all? Is it possible that she'd make the full year team and not tumble at all? She did a lot of tumbling on the prep team and they had a very successful season. If her skills weren't good enough for the full year why not leave her on the prep team? There are 18 girls on the team so I don't think it's a numbers thing. And I don't think it's a money thing either since not all prep girl made the team. But I'm new so I could be totally naive.
