Do I have a case regarding physical abuse of my daughter by her coach?

Question Details: My daughter (and at least 3 other girls) was slapped and had her hair pulled by her "substitute" gymnastics team coach during practice. I approached her regular coach about it when I found out, and she spoke to the owner who then did nothing about it. A few weeks later, the owner sent out an email saying that gymnastics is a hands on sport and that they would never purposely hurt a child. They never addressed the parents about this and the coach is still coaching. I am very upset that this was allowed,and was dismissed when parents voiced their concern. I am considering suing them for abusing my child.
