I had the exact same problem, I was 10 and training 14 hours a week, I had to miss so many things. My mom wanted me to stay because honestly she loved it more then I did. Eventually 3 years later she let me quit but the last 3 years were really awful and so were my coaches

We don't know what her homework load/practice schedule is, or her school hours, or bedtime, so to everyone saying "THATS ONLY 2 HOURS A DAY!!", that might leave her with alot less time then you are thinking. Example, if she practices Mon-Wed-Fri, that's five+ hours a day. Assuming that she attends school for 8 hours a day, and she gets home at 3 then leaves for gymnastics, she will get home @ 8. That gives her only a few hours for homework, showering, studying and any kind of "me" time. Maybe she does practice two hours a day, everyday, but while you might get thirty minutes of homework a night as a 6th grader, she could be getting two-three hours a night as a junior in high school. And my advice to her is that you have to really be serious about quitting before you ask your mom. I tried this over the summer and it didn't go well, so I dropped the matter and realized that I didn't want to quit. You have to be POSITIVE and form a good argument. GOOD LUCK!! xoxo Casey L.

Teachers should understand if you are busy with your sport. And you just need to try your best to get it all done on time. You don't need to shower EVERY day as some people say and there is dry shampoo for hair and deodorant stuff for smell. 16 hours a week so 16 divided by 7...2 hours and something per day.
That's not bad. You have time for things! Unless you don't space your practice times like that.
Still I agree 100% with your Mother. You are lucky.
Learn to love it.
