I'm sure it's just my naivety to the sport but I am surprised/disappointed that there is so much gym hopping and not more loyalty to a gym. I get it if you are miserable then you need to find a new program but I don't suspect that's often the case. It just seems so ironic that athletes and parents talk all season about "team first" and loyalty but then at tryouts they leave their teams all behind for a shot at a "famous" team. How can a small D1 gym ever grow when the athletes that they train end up pursuing the large mega-gym programs? These mega gyms attract the best talent and it seems that the small gyms become the training ground for them. This may be an old song I'm singing but it's new to me and it's bumming me out.
