I'm thinking about quitting my current swim team, to swim for the team that one of my ex-coaches coaches instead.
They're way less competitive, and they only practice three nights a week, and I'm the oldest by three years. It's also twenty minutes further away than the club I swim for now, plus I'm the best by far.
I also have to leave the people at my current club
On the other hand, I'm kind of burnt out from all of the practices (six nights a week for 1:30/2 hours) and I'm not very competitive, plus I hate most of the kids there (save for maybe seven people, and they're really the only people who give a shit about me.) It's not like I won't see them, and I don't particularly like the head coach, because not only is he one of those people that plays favorites a lot, but he's also a dick and has horrible music taste.
Plus I'm starting to realize that my ex-coach is one of the best things that's ever happened to me. I'm a lot happier when I'm around him and he treats me better than most people treat me, especially adults.
I don't enjoy swimming as much anymore because it's competitive and I'm one of the worst swimmers at my club.
I'm trying to make a descision, and I'm leaning towards leaving, but I'm not sure. What do you think?

Do what makes you happy. It sounds like your old coach really made an impact on you, and swimming sounds like something you love but lost passion for because of how forced it is for you now. I think you should leave, your reasons for staying aren't as strong, and it doesn't sound like you believe in them either0
