    I currently
    cheer at an un known gym


    what do you think about traveling to be a part of a better known gym and how do you think a known gym becomes known?

    With all due respect the picture of your avatar is somebody from a well known gym so I am guessing this is not a picture of you. I would suggest you change your avatar so that nobody is misrepresented!

    I guess it depends on the reason you want to switch gyms? If your gym isn't a good fit program or coach wise, you should definitely look around at your options and see if you can find a place that better suits and challenges you.

    Known gyms become know with years of building a strong program with competitive teams and a great coaching staff.

    My first question would be, "Is traveling to a gym even possible?" You would need strong parental support and/or your own car.

    I went thru this a little with CP as her rec team was imploding in drama. I considered traveling with her to a rec program about an hour away, but she and I both agreed that in the end, it wasn't worth it.

    She is now involved with an All Star gym nearby, but the commute varies from 25 min to 45 min depending on practice time. We're lucky to have a great group to carpool with, so each parent only needs to drive 1 time per week.

    Our program is only in its 3rd year, but we've put out some great performances, and we're getting noticed. I was talking with one of the owners last week, and she told me that after a great weekend at a large event, she had several people approach her and ask when our evals were.
