So here is the deal, last season my program was changed three or four times during the course of the season and ended up feeling like it was complete patchwork without any emotion and simply setting up for jump passes, which ended up in me hating it and not wanting to skate it any more, despite loving my music. This season I DON'T want this to happen again, even if I level. I've already mentioned this to one of my coaches and I made the suggestion that we make my program more advance so that I can level and just keep the same program when I do rather than changing it a million of time. However, I don't really feel like my coaches are really putting the amount of focus on my program that I would like, and I think this comes from being the only "Adult" in the group. I feel like they spent a lot more time putting together the programs of other skaters together, while my program is always left for last and as the Belgian's say made "between the soup and the potatoes".
This year I am trying to push a bit more but I still get the feeling that my program is getting ignored. While I am an "adult" I always look for input from my mother artistically because she has a great eye for it, and we have come to the conclusion that we don't really like any of the team's programs.... and that I really would like to have another coach, a friend of my primary coach, make my program.
Do you guys think that this is crossing the line? I can't really completely switch to the other coach because he lives in Spain, but I can manage to spend a few weeks with him this summer and I think it would be good to have him make my program. Also, how would you guys suggest bringing the subject up with my primary coach? I don't want to offend her.
