Our JO Program is divided into three segments: Developmental, Compulsory, and Optional. Each segment caters to gymnasts at different stages of their journey, offering specialized training to foster growth and success. This program sequence in order of level is necessary to go through in order to reach the highest levels of gymnastics. This is how gymnasts can earn College Scholarships and even become Regional and National champions!
Our developmental pre-team is designed for young girls with strong physical and cognitive qualities and the potential to compete at advanced levels of gymnastics. While our ultimate goal is to transition pre-team members into our competitive team, we prioritize creating an environment of fun, where gymnasts develop a solid foundation and lifelong love for the sport.
Level 1: The initial stepping stone in a gymnast's career.
Level 1 focuses on building essential skills, strength, flexibility, body awareness, and basic knowledge of each event. Emphasizing fun and camaraderie, gymnasts forge friendships while mastering skill sets required for progression.
Level 2-5: The Path to Excellence
At these levels, known as the Compulsory levels, gymnasts across the country learn the same skills and routines as specified by the USAG Compulsory Handbook. Level 2 marks the start of competitive gymnastics at our facility, where gymnasts participate in events and receive well-deserved recognition. We take pride in paying meticulous attention to the details demanded by the USAG Compulsory Program, as they form the foundation for gymnasts to ascend to the highest levels of the sport.
Levels 6-10 are known as Optional gymnastics, offering gymnasts the freedom to showcase their unique abilities while meeting specific Code of Points requirements. With personalized routines for the Balance Beam, Uneven Bars, Vault and Floor exercises, gymnasts can express their personalities, truly shining on their competitions. Achieving mastery at these advanced levels requires immense dedication and hard work, but it can also pave the way for college scholarships and walk-on positions. Our knowledgeable coaches are ready to guide interested athletes and families through the collegiate scholarship process, answering any questions you may have.
Whether you are transferring from another gym or starting your competitive career, we offer evaluations by our experienced team coaches to determine the ideal path for your athlete's success. By understanding their strengths and potential, we can guide them toward achieving their goals, both in the present and future.
