    Unrelated - I feel like the last time I saw you post, your kid was nowhere near Worlds age. Now she is on Beatles. Time flies!

    When dealing with kiddos I have a saying:

    "More than 2? Must be you!"

    Generally speaking if you have had issues in your last 2 gyms, schools, jobs, etc. it may be time to sit down and determine what role you may be playing in the conflicts you have.

    Coaches calling out coaches. Sitting back & watching it all unfold, A very good way to end my junior year in high school. *sips more tea*

    Ooof. It's a little... sketchy they've said no to finding out who sent the messages. One would think they'd want to know who it was so that person could be held accountable. It's a relief to hear it's likely that this didn't happen, and that there's another trans athlete who's had nothing but a positive experience there. I hope the next season is easier there; it sounds like it's been rough the past few years.

    I am only commenting to ask a question about this. The USASF sanctions actually say 3 year owner/coach ineligibility. 5 yearProgram Probation. I fully believe that the owner/coach would not risk his entire Program by blatantly violating what he had been told he had to do. So are you saying that the only violation that was issued was event backstage eligibility?

    No reflection on the program in my questioning this. It just blows my mind!

    There was more to it than just what’s mentioned here. I am not positive, so you may want to verify. I believe it’s a matter of public info through USASF, so not too hard to find. I believe there were some pretty significant fines along with some other things/training that had to happen. Again, I’m not positive on the specifics but it was more than just probation. It was definitely a pretty significant consequence overall.

    When you change two gyms per season because there’s to much drama maybe....maybe you’re the problem :oops:

    Yes. Sorry. I just referenced that part, and realize that minimizes the rest( fines etc) What I’m shocked about is that USASF eligibility for coaching only means backstage/ warm up rooms.

    That isn't what it should mean.....but are they really going to address it? no. Ineligibility says they are not even allowed at USASF sanctioned events and event producers are notified of this - it's a lot of looking the other way. If he was suspended then that is the "no warm up room" punishment, but I'm pretty sure the disciplinary report said ineligible. I can't exactly remember

    Rockstar is an amazing program that unfortunately has had that shadowed by drama in the past. I feel like painting the whole program with a brush is wrong, bc there are plenty of great people at the program. Unfortunate that this is a "few bad apples" type of thing.

    As for the bullying situation - Kids shouldn't be attacked for something that anons said happened, I hate social media. I hate people that intentionally stir up drama. That is all.

    In my junior year all we worried about was if we got poms or not.
