I'm glad to have your advices and to the point explanations. They were sound and clear.
As I said before, I've no technical or practical knowledge about skiing but your explanations were so dummy proof that they made me more informed spectator at least.
For my part, as a parent, I saw that, I should have my daughter engaged in more FUNdamental issues of skiing, before putting her between gates. It seems, we put the cart in front of the horses so far
For the technical issues, I think we were unfortunate in terms of coaching for they didn't put forth none of the issues you showed clearly. Most of all, I'm deeply surprised by their training approach that they put her 100% of the times in the gates since she was 6. (But the more surprising issue is that my daughter didn't complain for this type of training even once, and she kept saying "I love skiing")... poor girl didn't even have a chance to learn that there were better and enjoyable ways of this sport
For the coaching, I think I will shift to a new ski school which better suits my daughter's needs... However, since I'm not capable of even conveying your technical comments to her coaches to be, I'll definitely get them read this forum so that they will be informed instantly... (Thanks to you all for saving me from a big hassle )... At the end of the day, of course I'm aware of my daughter will not be a Vonn, Mancuso or Maze; Surely he will stop even racing in the midst of life's the hustle and bustle. Thus, it's better for her to remember these days as a fun with a smile in her face, instead of remembering fighting anxiously with the gates like don quixote.
Moreover, thanks to your help, I also reasoned that, this approach may even improve its milk league racing results.
Thanks to you all
