gymnastics - do instructors need licensed?
My 4 yo dd is taking gymnastics. She's been there for two months. It is just something for her to do and she really likes it. It is a horrible unorgainzed mess. The teachers are all young high school girls who do not care about teaching. They just run the kids thru the motions. Yesterday in class they were working on the short bar (uneven bars? the ones they swing around). The teacher has the child grab the bar, then they put their arms under the childs legs and flip their legs up over the bar, so that the child is now hanging from the bar by their stomach. Then she helps them back over & down. Anyway I was kind of scared watching this and worried she might fall. Anyway when got home from class, dd was complaining that her stomach hurt. I think it was maybe her ribs (that is where she was pointing to) and it was from that bar. I think these kids have no idea what they are doing. Don't they need to be licensed? Also the gym owner's three children (ages 4-7) run freely around the gym during class. They climb on whatever isn't being used at the time. It is such a distraction. I keep wondering how this girl got a license to open this place. She comments about being ASA or something like certified. How? I don't get it. What can I do short of just quitting?
