My 12 year old daughter looks much older than she really is. She cheers for a local youth group in my area. I just found out yeasterday that she somehow got put in the 9-10 year old group. Many of the girls on that team are even younger than 9 becaues they allow younger girls on the team if they have a brother that plays football in the same age group. My daughter is upset about being put with the younger girls becaues she looks much older than them. She is 12 but looks more like 14. Most of the girls on the 9-10 team are 7-8 years old. I called the lady over setting up the teams yeasterday but she said she already turned the paperwork in to the county and that it will be hard to change her team. She also mentioned that it would be a big inconvienance. I am upset that I have invested over $200 and they cannot even put my daughter with her own age group. Am I overreacting? What would you do to resolve this? ThanksAnswer Question

Call your county parks and rec to see if they are the one's that get the paperwork. If they are, ask them about the situation and see what they have to say. Ask them if it's a big 'inconvenience'.
There are a lot of reasons she may have put your DD with the younger girls, either way she should be with her age group.
