    I am so guilty of talking about CPs gym as "our gym".

    Thou shalt relax and realize that in 10 years, no one will care about what team your child was on. The rest of the world does not care about who won World's or _________ Nationals. The rest of the world does care about what type of person your child turns out to be, how they treat those around them, and how they cope with situations that do not go their way. Your kids are watching you and how you deal with try outs too. Be the one to set a good example, be nice to those around you, don't trash talk other kids, relax a little bit, and just try to be that parent that coaches and other parents want to be around.

    Thou shalt put a bow and comb CPs hair and make sure she has on appropriate gym attire before trying out at a different gym.... First impressions mean a lot!

    Thou shalt not video CP during thier tryout at a new gym to show her friends!

    Well, since I help pay gym's bills, support gyms teams and athletes, welcome new parents, I'd say it is OUR gym!

    That gym is going to have a lot of "flyers" at tryouts. Just guessing. ;)

    Thou shalt not get caught coaching your friend's kid who was on J1 and 13 last year and dying for that BHS and so frustrated and so so close and good friend mom and I are staring through the window talking about it. Using her back only, then deep squat and no push with legs. Mom calls her over, we tell her to use her legs. She goes next time, we're giving her thumbs up, waving and I kind of look past kid to see a few coaches taking notice of the spectacle. I said, uh, we're not supposed to attempt to coach period. I know better on my own kid but, man, she's so close and they weren't paying us any attention a few minutes ago. Sorry, sorry, sorry.

    Thou shalt not "take a break" just because you are jealous that your CP hasn't moved up levels yet again. It's ok to say the sport isn't for you or accept the fact that every child isn't meant to be a level 5 athlete and let them have fun at what they are doing.
