I am not in a position to recommend one specific coach or one specific program over another. I actually serve as the Chairman of the Board of USA Gymnastics.
We have got a lot of great programs in this country.
What I would recommend, for example, is for a parent who is interested in putting their child into a sport, whether it is gymnastics or whether it is any other sport, soccer or whatever, is to go spend a day or more and find all the programs in your area. Don’t just go to the one closest, but find if there are four or five within a reasonable drive of your home, and visit all of them.
Go on a weekday, because on a weekends is when they tend to not have the same proper training for competitions. The week days are when we do the regular training.
Talk to the coaches or the owners of the program and ask them questions that are important to you about safety, about any certification that might matter to them in that sport. In USA Gymnastics we have a safety certification program.
We want our coaches to be members of the USA Gymnastics and take all of the proper training.
Ask all of those questions. Then make a decision as to where you are most comfortable sending your child.
Go where you are most comfortable sending your child. That could vary depending on the kid, the athlete, the parent, what their needs are, what you are looking for, what the needs of the child are, and really make an informed decision.
Don’t just go in there and find the one closest to your home and say, “That’s it! The drive is the shortest.” It may not be the best program for your child.
