My only issue is having your kid compete at such a high level at such an early age, especially in a sport where she will reach her peak 20 years from now. Slow down. Teach the kids body control, technique, and be progressive...but don't have them going for maxes at such an early age. I've seen videos of here squatting where her form was absolutely scary, certainly an area that could be addressed before pushing things too hard.
I've seen those videos too. I think someone posted them here and her dad actually registered to respond.

Perhaps I was the critic; I don't recall. But I do remember some of the reps were spotty.
