Levels 1-5 are called compulsory which means the routines are determined by USA gymnastics. Levels 1-3 are not required and level placement is up to the coaches. USA Level 4 is required before moving to USA Level 5.
Placement is made not just by a child’s skills, but also by their maturity. The routines in the higher levels become more complex and require more of a child mentally then just learning the skills.
Girls will spend the Fall learning skills and routines and then compete in 4-6 meets in December-April + state meet and 1-2 optional out of state meets.
