So this is my newbie post. I don't know if introductions are appropriate here but I am a mom of a newbie Competitive cheer athlete. We are in the last month of her first season and she is on a level 1 Prep team and we are hoping to make level 2 All Star team next year.........or whatever team will fit her best (those are my words not hers she wants level 2 lol) She started late as she is 11 years old now I guess that is my fault I should have gotten her involved earlier so she could be further on by now but I am very proud of all the progress she has made this year. She is even Athlete of the month at her gym this month . I have not really done online open discussion boards like this with cheer in the past (I used to do competitive cheer when I was younger and even did stunt coaching before I got old ) So please excuse me in advance if I make a mistake on here. I am not even sure our gym even knows such a think as this board exists!!!! Well anyway that is us in a nutshell, I hope to learn more about how the "parent's seat" works in this sport!
