This progressive class is a prerequisite to coed advanced noncompetitive, and builds on the solid foundation developed in previous levels to safely advance. Gymnasts should be able to adequately follow routine and choreography, demonstrate confidence and efficiency on gymnastics equipment and floor exercises, including round off to back/rebound, arabesque/scale, back hip circle underswing, and front handspring over rezi sideways. Coach evaluation required.
Experienced coaches carefully developed our curriculum with progressive skills that allow gymnasts to advance through each level safely. Because we focus on rewarding individual character development as much as physical skill achievement, we rely on evaluations to test your gymnast’s current skill mastery to ensure they are in the right level class. Evaluations take place throughout the session to provide thorough, consistent feedback to parents and gymnasts about their progress through our curriculum.
To ensure your gymnast is in the proper class level, a coach evaluation is required prior to registration. The evaluation will test their mastery of the following skills:
- Vault skills: Jump HS flat back to 16 inches, arm circle, jump HS flatback to rezi
